British Invade Princeton-Brown Football Game

By Ashwath Rabindranath '14

If it isn’t bloody England already mate! Yes, 'tis true. The rumours (spelt with a proud U, mind you) are true. THE BRITS ARE COMING (or, rather, they came). More precisely, the Children’s BBC, filmed the season finale of Trade Your Way to the USA during the Princeton-Brown “American” football game (Yes, I can say it at last) last weekend to see which three-person team of British children aged 12-14 could sell the most cookies and candy in the stands. The two teams advanced to the final by coming up on top among 14 three-person teams in the competition held in England. The crew arrived in the USA earlier last week and toured NYC. They came to campus on Friday to film segments with the cheerleaders and the marching band before heading to the game on Saturday.
