This week begins the World Series, the premier sporting championship in the nation (at least in my opinion--why have one night of the Superbowl when you can have at least four nights of nail-biting, crowd-rousing suspense?). While the world obsesses over the current New York-Philadelphia rivalry, let's take a look at another - between Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania.
