Views of Cornell-Harvard hockey from the pep band

The Cornell-Harvard game in Lynah Rink each year has consistently the best atmosphere of any Cornell hockey game. From the perennial tossing of the fish to the ice when Harvard skates out, to the special chants directed at the Crimson, the game is like no other on the calendar.

Beyond those major distinctions, however, the Cornell hockey fanatic will notice other differences. For example, the pep band plays the theme from the 1970 movie Love Story when Harvard takes the ice. To the average fan, it might seem a strange juxtaposition of a romantic, mellifluous movie theme and a rough-and-tumble ice hockey game, but it’s appropriate because the movie’s main character plays hockey for Harvard and the Crimson loses a tough game to Cornell.
