Bingles and bungles were bunched in the breakaway

I was linked to this post in the Washington City Paper’s blog The Sexist and it included what I can only assume to be old-timey baseball speak, describing the 1909 Harvard-Yale baseball game.

Yet it was a good game — rattling good. Classy? Rather! Pep? Plenty of it! Ginger? the real old Jamake. 

But it also included what I can only assume to be a prehistoric version of “California Girls.” 

 I’m assuming the New York girl wins, because there weren’t many, if any, California Girls at Vassar or Radcliffe in 1909.
