    Army-Navy Game

    So I'm going to the Army-Navy game tomorrow with three other people. Our tickets were obtained via a West Point alumnus, so we're sitting on the Army side and everyone but me will secretly be rooting for Navy (the niece of one of our group is a Naval Academy plebe). I really don't care who wins, but a condition of getting the tickets was my support of Army.

    Do you watch this game? If so, who do you think or hope will win?

    Very true. I'm actually looking forward to the pageantry, etc., more than the game itself.

    Since I work for the Army as a civilian, I'll have to root for them.

    Navy as usually will win the game, but the whole country wins when the service academies play because the best qualities of the young people of this country are exhibited by both teams.

    I agree with the above.

    Well, Navy won and won big, lol. However, the experience of attending that game was awesome! We were sitting at the Army 20 yard line and were in our seats well before the march-on and were there to see a low-flying Air Force One dip its wings over the stadium. Both the Golden Knights and the Leapfrogs were incredible to watch (the Leapfrogs maybe just a tad more impressive), as were the F-14 and the Apache and Blackhawk helicopter flyovers, the other game traditions.....the whole thing was great from start to finish, even though it was VERY cold and it's probably going to take a day for me to thaw out.

    Some of the "spirit spots" that were shown during the game were pretty funny.

    I should also add that it was great to see President Bush and not hear anyone booing him.

    I've been to a few of those games in the past. They are a great deal of fun!

    My rookie watched the game yesterday, he was rooting for Navy. It didn't sound like much of a game.
