If you go to goprincetontigers.com you'll see that Princeton is essentially giving away tickets by the carload (examples: any NJ public school teacher can get four free tickets; ; all youth teams and scouts in uniform get in free, ALL advance tickets are half price) for the Saturday title shot with Dartmouth. Game is at 1:30, much friendlier than noon, weather forecast is sunny and 69. Not sure the Greenies are gonna travel in numbers for this, but they're usually somewhere around. This will probably represent the ceiling on Princeton Stadium attendance for the next few years, although it will be interesting for the officialdom to try to get an accurate count with all the freebies.

Will GG put on his old uniform to try to get in for free?

We had lodgings available. But Mrs. Go Green and I volunteered to watch our friends' children while they went away for a romantic weekend.

So it's OneWorldSports for me on Saturday. And the friends will return the favor down the road. :)

Calvin: Could have another 12th man scenario.

Joiseyfan: This may be an experiment at P, but giving away tickets has occurred elsewhere in the League for some time.

Dartmouth is going to get some help from a spectator at the goal line?

If memory serves, Yale did pretty much the same thing for the 2001 game against Dartmouth.

It was a larger-than-usual crowd, but still fell short of expectations.
