Good morning. Today is the 321st day of the year. Judging by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of Nov. 16, 1901, college football was already a crowd favorite. An article on the annual Princeton-Yale game describes “immense crowds” of students, faculty and alumni.

Well-known people who were born today include actress Lisa Bonet, former baseball pitcher Dwight Gooden, jazz singer Diana Krall, actress Martha Plimpton and basketball player Amare Stoudemire.
