SIDE NOTE: It is because of this game back in 1991 that I met my husband in 1992. You see, he was late to this game, and for a cadet at USMA, this is a big no-no. Hubby was stuck at school 'walking the area' instead of away doing more fun things (like visiting his previous girlfriend). The day he walked his last hour was the day we met at Michaels Tavern in Terrytown, NY.
Back to the topic at hand....Army-Navy football. The USMA team "Army" and the USNA team, "Navy" each represent their services' oldest officer commissioning sources. As such the game has come to embody the spirit of the interservice rivalry of the United States Armed Forces. It is one of the most enduring rivalries in college football.
That rivalry is not only between service members, but their wives as well.....
As in true Army form, the Army spanked the Navy with a victorious score of 46-12! (We won't talk about the score of the college game here...that is for the next blog.)
