Lifelong Yale basketball fan Peter Levin has renounced his fan allegiance to the Bulldogs and, despite having graduated from Yale in 1985, has announced to family and friends that he will now root exclusively for Harvard athletics teams going forward.
“I’m tired of being the bridesmaid,” Levin told his psychiatrist. “Always the padawan, never the jedi. Yale losing to Harvard in the Ivy playoff game after being 2.3 seconds away from a league title at Dartmouth was the last straw.”
Levin said identifying with Yale basketball and football had made him feel inadequate and believe that he didn’t deserve success and happiness for himself.
