The View From The Crescent

MetaEzra made a pilgrimage to Ithaca -- our darling Ithaca -- yesterday. Over the course of the day we connected with old friends and new, soaked in some facetime at CTB, dined on The Commons, indulged ourselves at the Cayuga Lake Creamery, and enjoyed the first round of the NCAA lacrosse tournament with a game between Cornell and The Ohio State University.

Loyal readers, no doubt, will recall that last year MetaEzra followed the lacrosse team in carnelian and white all the way to Baltimore.

That said, we would rather not talk about yesterday's lacrosse game. Suffice to say that we think Duke will have its hands full against the Buckeyes next week. We're also hoping that Cornell senior and lacrosse player Danny Nathan, who has been blogging for the NYTimes this week, will be able to fill us in on exactly what happened out on the field.

But this was the first time that we ever took in a game at Schoellkopf amidst such bona fide weather. The view from the Crescent to the rolling countryside in the west is unbelievable, especially in the face of a setting sun, and a glaring silhouette of McGraw Tower. Upon consideration, it might be one of the most striking views available at any sports stadium in the country.

Complete with tailgating on Kite Hill before the event, we began to get the feeling of what Stanford would be like.
