I'll take numbers 4 and 7 in the top picure, and pretty much all in the second picture. With the exception of their little gay mascot. Got enough of those already!

Just watch Ralph Lauren pilfer this. Watcha wanna bet.

Good... now I don't have to fight Thom for the little gay mascot...

And I'll take the one at the far end (with the bandage on his leg) from Yale, and in addition to the gay mascot in the second shot I'll have the boys in cheeky hats in the background, especially the one looking back at camera over the top of the head of the guy on the far right. ;)

Would you believe I was on the crew team at Cincinnati for a few brief shining moments. OK, not the VARSITY crew team, but still. Of course that was twenty odd years ago. Sigh. Twenty VERY odd years ago.
