The sea of blue that is "Yale." Lorelai can't believe so many people are up on a Saturday morning. Rory says that they're excited about life, but she finds nothing exciting before 11. Lorelai wonders who just shouted out a "yoo-hoo," and then discovers that it was her own mother. I thought schools in the Northeast went this crazy over basketball, and that it was only in the south that people were this nuts over football. Emily tells Lorelai that if she's going to continue sitting on the ground like that, she should get herself a saxophone and a tip cup. Heh. Anyway, Richard and Emily are decked out in Yale blue, and Emily frets over Lorelai's unfortunate decision to wear "crimson" today. Lorelai argues for a while, but ends up having to wear Emily's jacket and scarf to cover up her Harvard colors as Lorelai delivers an awkward Kill Bill joke. Rory has brought six thousand seventy-two Fig Newtons because sometimes Rory is a total tool. Richard and Emily laugh and laugh and laugh about the Fig Newtons, but we never get to find out exactly why. Is it an old Yale story, or is it because they're so rich they're having their own block party? I don't know. Rory and Lorelai can't believe the game doesn't start until 1. "Then why the hell did you meet us here at 9?" Lorelai whines. Emily asks if she has to talk like Sharon Osbourne. Lorelai points out Emily's dirty button; it tells Harvard to go to hell. Richard says that the game day is filled with rituals and traditions. It's time for a visit to Dan. "Who's Dan?" Lorelai and Rory ask over and over.
