Tigers Get a Rise Out of Yale Songs "There was screaming and noise; guys looked out windows and couldn't believe what they saw." Princeton students couldn't believe what they heard Saturday at 6:55 a.m., either: Yale songs. The songs were sung and played - and a football cannon set off in the quad "with a sound you never heard before in your life" - by 54 members of the Columbia Marching Band disguised as the Yale band. The Lions wore dark blue concert blazers, the same color as Yale's marching blazers, and left behind music stamped "Property of the Yale Band." [note: we still have a few copies] None of the Princetonians caught on; they couldn't believe that the Yale band would come all the way down and then run back for the game. The awakened Tigers tried to retaliate by throwing water and firecrackers out the windows, but the only loss suffered by the CU band was a pair of broken glasses.
