    Remember, Army/Navy game this weekend! Army unveiled its uniform for the game. Remembering the "Big Red 1". Should be fun. My son is in Echo company 1st Regiment at USMA. Go Army Beat Navy!

    There's supposed to be a psychological advantage to black uniforms in sports, but I'm not sure they've ever done an adequate study on this, or how they would. Too many variables. I'd be pulling for Navy, being a former sailor (enlisted guy, not officer). If I recall, the Navy is way up on the wins historically.

    There's only one thing to be said:

    Go Army! Beat Navy!

    I'm a bit of a Navy Fan (I love Navy Flake). What kind of flake did Army every make?

    Go Navy! Beat Army!

    Watching a game is just another excuse for smoking a pipe for Forums members.

    And Ms. White's hands are much older and less attractive than the rest of her.....

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Since this thread is about that game, you might assume people would talk about the result. Just sayin.

    There is no need to post the result; anyone not knowing but wishing to will look it up, or watch their recorded game. There is only downside to so doing.

    I liked that instead the player names on the back of the Army jerseys, all jerseys said Army above the number.

    Baseball is a sport, Army/Navy is a football game and has been America’s game for 119 years. Sorry to spoil the score for anyone. I am sure all the squids here are upset.

    We were in Annapolis last night, every bar had the game (of course all Navy fans). We watched the last half with dinner. My dad was retired Army, 1st Infantry, so he must have been smiling.

    peck: "America's Pastime" is/was baseball. Well, until Rozelle taught the NFL how to make big moneys and attract a crowd. America's game is still probably bowling and we all know how athletic that game is! Mostly we play sp9orts in America by living vicariously on the couch with munchies and beer. At least that's how the beer companies see us.

    Fairly close game. Maybe the black uniform advantage played a role. Dubious, yes, but possible.
