Parking passes sold out

Just returned from the last of the weekly Yale mid-week press conferences at the Yale Bookstore where there was actually a horde of media - do you think it has anything to do with the fact that Yale is playing Harvard this week?

First the news of the day.

All the parking passes sold out by 5 p.m. on Monday so if you plan on coming to the game and don't have one of the precious parking passes, I would go onto www.yalebulldogs.com to see where the shuttle buses to and from the Yale Bowl are located because if you try to drive in and sweet talk yourself into a parking spot, you will be disappointed.

Turning to the football portion of the news update:

Senior safety Larry Abare has been medically cleared to play. I was at the last hour of this morning's practice and did not see Abare. He is being fitted for a cast that will protect the two broken bones in his right forearm but give himself range of motion to be able to play. There will be much more on Abare in Wednesday's edition of the Register. I found it interesting that Marcus Wallace, who had the unenviable task of trying to replace Abare at strong safety the last three games, showed up at practice wearing a cast on his right arm. He was able to practice so it is just a way of protecting his injured arm.

Freshman receiver Chris Smith "won't be ready" for Saturday according to Yale coach Tom Williams although more will be known on his status later in the week.

Other than that, Yale seems OK injury wise.
