Words matter, and our choice of words to describe others goes a long way to communicating what we think of them. For example, consider the minor controversy after Harvard Stadium's opening. The stadium scoreboards were more advanced than most. One sat atop the stands at the closed end of the stadium, and the other stood behind the goal posts at the stadium's open end.
Great story. I had no idea. Though in 1959 they would be the Lehigh Engineers. Mountain Hawks came in the 90s
I had never heard of this story before, nor the use of opponents on a scoreboard. I always took the word visitors for granted. Thanks I learned a lot!
