Greetings, Brooklyn. Today is the 307th day of the year.

ON THIS DAY IN 1934, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “Princeton-Harvard Grid Feud Renewed.”

The article focused on Harvard and Princeton facing off in football after an eight year gap.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

“In the air there is even a note of sheepishness, signifying, let us hope, a chastened spirit on both sides and the complete exorcism of the silly mad hate which disrupted their relations in 1926,” the Eagle reported.


NOTABLE PEOPLE born on this day include singer ADAM ANT, who was born in 1954; actor KEN BERRY, who was born in 1933; actress KATE CAPSHAW, who was born in 1953; football player COLIN KAEPERNICK, who was born in 1987; actress KATHY KINNEY, who was born in 1954; actor DOLPH LUNDGREN, who was born in 1959; comedian and actor DENNIS MILLER, who was born in 1953; Olympic figure skater EVGENY PLUSHENKO, who was born in 1982; comedian and actress ROSEANNE BARR, who was born in 1953; sportscaster and former football player PHIL SIMMS, who was born in 1956; and actress MONICA VITTI, who was born in 1933.
