Indeed, it is that time of year, the only college football game I care about.
I'm not sure when I started following this game as I do now. Probably when The Naviguesser went off to college where he donned the uniform of an NROTC Midshipman.
Now with two daughters and a son-in-law still on active duty, and The Sea Lawyer still in the Reserves, all proudly representing the U. S. Navy, my love of this particular event has grown.
But Sarge, you might ask, did any of them go the the Trade School on the Severn?
Why yes, yes one did. The Sea Lawyer is a proud alumnus of Annapolis.
So, with all due respect to my Army brethren and colleagues (a good buddy of mine from high school went to West Point, as did one of The Nuke's high school classmates) I just have to say...

You heard me...
And I never argue with Dragons!
Navy - 17
Army - 10
Hard fought, but Navy wins. That's 13 straight versus Army.
A great game!
