This is perhaps the most 2019 thing ever.
Students from Harvard and Yale don’t do much court or field storming when it comes to athletics, but when it happens, it’s apparently over academic and environmental subjects like climate change.
The Crimson’s annual game against the Bulldogs was delayed prior to the start of the third quarter after students from both schools stormed the field and refused to leave in the name of activism towards climate change.

A large banner held by students reads “Nobody Wins: Yale & Harvard complicit in climate injustice.”
