"Name of the two teams that played the first college football game in 1869" is incorrectly worded. It seems you must have meant: Name one of the two teams... (as the answer is Rutgers or Princeton)

2:49 here. I didn't know Thorpe was a ballroom dancer. I saw some "Dance Sport" on TV and it was so mechanically precise that it was oddly cold and impersonal...dancing with no romance or personality, just intense technical precision and strength. Which made the garish costumes, helmet hair and prerehearsed facial expressions and flourishes all the more artificial-seeming.
