I went to my first Army-Navy football game in 1983. It was very memorable for two reasons: 1) it was my first and 2) it was played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena! The Army team didn't come out victorious that day - on the scoreboard anyway - but this is the cool thing about this contest. The teams will play their hearts out for 60 minutes trying to kill each other on the field. When it's all said and done, they will pay respects to each other's Alma Maters and once again become brothers in arms. It's an incredible tradition to behold.
Army and Navy square off again on Saturday and I get just excited today as I did back in 1983.
Go Army, Beat Navy!!!
