Pfft, the Navy, the laughingstock of the US Military.

Yeah. I mean for fark's sake, it's called The Game. Army/Navy is up there in college rivalries, but OSU/UM and Alabama/Auburn both top it. Coaches don't get fired for having winning records but losing this game.

That was a fluke

The Green Berets would have done it better and more in style. Navy SEALs are weak and are more worried about getting back to their mama's.

Other than that, don't have a dog in this fight.

True, but that is more of an abusive relationship than a rivalry. This was done up for last year, the only time I'd ever made it before a game (maybe at halftime, actually) which of course was the reason that Michigan won for only the second time this millennium against their betters. They're not worth the effort to make an updated or correct one since beating them isn't really an accomplishment anymore.

2012-12-08 03:00:18 PM  
The one rivalry where I am truly torn apart between who I should choose. High school teammate is on Army's football team, plus I spent a couple semesters in Army ROTC before leaving for medical reasons. However, father is a Navy grad, and best friend from high school attends the Naval Academy. Hard to choose.
 
2012-12-08 03:00:43 PM  
Squid here, and a boat school grad at that. Lets turn it up to 11. Beat army!
 
2012-12-08 03:02:32 PM  
I was at the 1979 Army-Navy game, in Philadelphia. The Navy painted the Cadet's seats with turpentined paint, so it wouldn't dry, and ruined every Cadet's uniform. The Army had a giant slingshot, and were launching balloons full of jelly, paint and other noxious substances at the Navy band. Their specific target was a certain musician's tuba.
 
2012-12-08 03:10:12 PM  
I did my time in the Big Green Machine, finishing up as one who offered adult guidance to officers. And, I attended the Engineering and Science Summer Seminar at Annapolis right before my senior year of HS. Turned that down, though, because I didn't want to be in the military. Oops.

Anyway, thanks to the West Point grads I've served with, I proudly say "Go Navy!"

All true. I mean, it touched everyone, even the CBS announcers.

I do think it was a bit disrespectful to keep showing him over and over after a while, though. We got it. He was crushed, we don't have to subject him to being on national TV the entire time he was going through those raw emotions. I'm okay with them capturing the shots on the sideline, when the general was comforting him, when his coach was comforting him, when Navy's coach was comforting him and all of that, but two dozen cuts to him throughout the whole ordeal was a little much in my opinion.

Well, I'm glad Brandon Kaufman is on our side.

38-17 lead turns into a 38-35 lead and the opposing team has just forced us into 3rd-and-9? How about going up over a defender, taking the ball away, shedding the tackle, and outrunning the safety for a 76-yard TD? That cool?
