The musings, rants, and dissertations of three retired military guys. Two Air Force, one Navy. The Old AF Sarge, Juvat, and Tuna.
Heh. I'm well and truly agnostic on this one, at best. I suppose I SHOULD root for Navy, bein' the father of a Squidly Sort. But I just CAN'T. It ain't in me. ;-)
Well you've got ONE sailor in the family. I have FIVE, one of whom is USNA '04. So I'm locked into this.But sitting here post-game, Navy winning 17-13, my heart goes out to those West Point kids. Eleven straight losses to Navy. Damn! I have a high school buddy who's retired Army, West Point class of 1975. Yes, he's bummed about the losing streak.How all I can say regarding college ball is "Go Notre Dame!"
I understand your position, Sarge, but I'd shoot myself if all my kids were Squids. ONE is bad enough, yanno? ;-)I LIKE yer last!
My Dad (USN, Korea) instilled into me, at an early age, a rooting interest for Navy in this game. Still, I think, deep in my heart, I was rooting for Steelman to drive to that touchdown.
Yeah, I know what you mean. I almost wanted Steelman to take it in too. "Almost"
Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
