The Army-Navy Game

This IS the greatest spectacle in all of collegiate sports!  E-V-A-H!  It IS the Army-Navy Classic!

How cool is this.  The Black Knights of Army came out in new unis: camouflage pants & helmets, black jerseys w/ camouflage numerals, and each player, every one, has "DUTY. HONOR. COUNTRY" where individual names are usually found, and down the sides of their pants.  I like that.  Well done!  And Navy, which is part of my heritage, and could have been most of my own life had I pushed for appointment ot the Academy, looks very sharp in that Blue, White and Gold.  (I just realized my HS colors were BWG, and the trademark colors of VISA are also BWG.... hmmm). 

WOW!  I love this game!  And I appreciate what is represents in every sense:  Class, Diginity, and Service.  The young men who play this game, and the men and women of the Corps of Cadets and Brigade of Midshipmen will be defending our freedoms and this country.  GOD BLESS THEM ALL!

Army adopted the Triple Option offensive scheme that Navy has traditionally used.  What fun!  And the Spirit Messages offered during the TV broadcast are not to be missed.  Sadly, I can't watch all of today's game, but with 3 minutes left in the 1st Quarter, Navy leads Army, 10-0!
