Only Yankees hate winning,

When the Columbia Lions football team snapped its infamous 44-game losing streak on Oct. 8, 1988, Michael Rosenthal was among thousands in the stands who stood and cheered, “We won!”

Puzzled, Mr. Rosenthal, the associate dean, then turned to a friend and asked, “What’s the protocol?”

Almost 30 years later, as the school is forging its best football season in recent memory, going 6-0 after the weekend’s 22-17 win over Dartmouth, some Columbians are still grappling with how to celebrate gridiron success. Indeed, a few see no cause for celebration at all.

It's an Ivy in a city with two NFL teams.
