Engineers 1, Harvard 0

There's a story about an MIT student who spent an entire summer going to the
Harvard football field every day wearing a black and white striped shirt,
walking up and down the field for ten or fifteen minutes throwing birdseed
all over the field, blowing a whistle and then walking off the field.  At
the end of the summer, it came time for the first Harvard home football
team, the referee walked onto the field and blew the whistle, and the game
had to be delayed for a half hour to wait for the birds to get off of the
field.  The guy wrote his thesis on this, and graduated.
