A Few More Navy/Army Items

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Here's a keys to the game article that touches on pretty much all of the same keys to the game for every Army Navy game. Maybe I'm just tired of hearing that Army needs to "take care of the football", but those keys look cliche'd.

Here's a look at the Washington D.C.'s efforts to host their first Navy/Army game.

It didn't hurt that FedEx Field is a 91,000-seat stadium, making it the largest venue to ever host the Army-Navy game. Sweeney said Saturday's service academy showdown is a sellout and that means more revenue for both institutions.

This article is noteworthy because it's from some site called Nextgov.com

Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno and Chief of Naval Operations Jonathan Greenert have been posting on Facebook to stoke the friendly but fierce rivalry between the Army's U.S Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., and the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

Were were these guys after the teams' respective losses to Rutgers?

This last one is a very nice article highlighting some of the history of the rivalry,  it's a fun read.
