Screening time

For anybody who is in the Philadelphia area on Oct. 24, one of the movies being screened as part of the United States Sports Film Festival is "Harvard Beats Yale 29-29" a documentary of the famous 1968 game between Harvard and Yale. The screening will take place at the Prince Music Theater (1412 Chestnut Ave., Philadelphia) at 9:30 p.m. on the 24th.

Another event worth mentioning is the charity walk in Fairfield on Oct. 19 which is being dedicated in the memory of Bill Gonillo, the former radio voice of Yale football. Gonillo, who battled diabetes for most of his adult life, passed away on Sept. 23 of last year. The event will begin at 10 a.m. at Penfield Pavilion in Fairfield. In the spirit of full disclosure, I will mention that I took part in the walk in 2007 in the memory of Bill, a good friend and will proudly be doing so again a week from Sunday.

I will blog later with some injury updates but I can say that anybody worried about Mike McLeod's status after he rolled an ankle in the fourth quarter of last week's win over Holy Cross can relax. McLeod was held out of practice on Wednesday but practiced without restriction on Thursday. McLeod's 3.3 yard per carry average could get healthy against a Dartmouth defense which is allowing 6 yards per carry in the first three games of the season. The 12:30 p.m. game on Saturday will be televised on NESN, the first of six televised games for the Bulldogs in the next seven weeks.
