Just thought with the game tomorrow and the Cadets/Midshipmen making their way to Phili today I'd create a thread for old grads from each side to root for their team.
Hey - who you calling OLD?
Yes he is, and I’ll root for Army every day except tomorrow.
Everyone feel free to post spirit videos as well.
Can I post a 70,000 byte graphic?
going to a sons of legion sponsored event for it tomorrow. Go Navy!
Go Army! BEAT NAVY!
My prediction: Navy 24-10 :(
Sonar Concurs! I’ll back the Black Knights, or the USAF (Falcons?) every week, except when they play the Middies. Just glad I’ll (finally) be retiring before I have to salute these kids.
GO NAVY!! BEAT ARMY!!!
You betcha. BEAT NAVY!
Well one could hope
...But for the Ogden....

Interesting little tid bit here. Most don’t know what the cadets do to each other prior to the game. Be it Army, Navy or Air Force. There’s a contest that goes on every year to get to the other contestant mentally. I attended a Navy/Air Force game years ago at the Air Force Academy. Naturally, I sat on the Navy’s side. In the stands on the other side of the field, the Air Force had their bleachers painted with “Air Force”. Somehow, and they don’t know how, the Navy cadets got onto the field and painted “Navy” over the Air Force painting. Then, the Navy cadets got into the Admin building of the Air Force Academy and stole a trophy, from a glass case, that was right in front of the Commanding Officers office.....they don’t know how they did that either. The trophy was returned to the glass case later but they don’t know how it got put back.
I often wonder what kinds of other things go on at the other Academys. All these cadets are challenged and can accomplish things that we would never think of.
Army, you ready for a butt kickin’?
