This Army-Navy thingy is gettin' a little old


I'm as patriotic as the next guy,served in the USMC, but C'MON!, teams that Vanderbilt would crush playing each other really isn't exciting. Oh well, at least there's a College Football game on today.

The football is far more entertaining than the commentary, that's for damn sure.

The arrogance and douchebaggery of a lot of West Pointers is why I don't pull for "Army"...and I'm an Army officer.

The way I look at it, they only represent the U.S. Military Academy, just as the Texas Longhorns aren't the official team of the state of Texas.

Nothing like military people's hate of those above them.

It's a pretty common theme I've noticed.

Clearly a troll. I don't really care.

If you haven't seen it I recommend you watch "A Game of Honor". Great documentary on this game done by Showtime. Goosebumps throughout. Great stuff.

I think it's one of the best traditions in the sport.

I'm with you, it's a cool rivalry, but these are two largely irrelevant teams this season. IDGAF about the faux pageantry.

Wow. They act like this is a bowl game or something. Sorry, if you have a .33 chance of winning the trophy, I don't think it requires a 30 minute presentation ceremony.

The only West Pointers in my HQ that outrank me are actually decent people.

Most of the arrogance and douchebaggery comes from my peers (fellow Majors) and company grade officers. Thanks for failing in your attempt at smack though.

LOL! I worked at the Pentagon for a couple of years as a contractor. Colonels were the "Coffee Boys". Funny when I went to different Contracts and they were the "Head Guys".

How many f-cks did you give when Navy beat an 8-4 Mizzou in the 2009 Texas Bowl.

That's more of a Pentagon thing than any thing else. You'd see 2-star generals as nothing more than slide bitches there.

It's a good game. Navy's a pretty good team.

Really not much like it, something I really enjoy watching each year.
