    The Army supporters should first Google "win"
    Then look at the dancers called Rockettes,
    Goggles or Google, either way they look great!

    Excellent posts by-the-way.

    Never saw the Navy Forrest Gump episode before. Very funny!
    Then Army took the comedy lead with the shower song
    Finally, the Army Rap song brought Navy back to tie the laugh track.
    Well done to all!

    Try Radio City Music Hall, 1260 6th Avenue, New York, NY, 10020. You can see the West Point Drill Team during the Christmas show.

    If I remember correctly they give some free tickets to service members in uniform at the USO in Times Square. Also free tickets to some Broadway Shows. It is worth checking out for any service member in NY.

    Former West Point football player gets ready to root for Army in Iraq

    For those of you who question the importance of athletics at service academies. This is a great illustration of an athlete turning into a soldier -

    What is the point? Looks like the cherry picked picture of Navy has about 10 sleeping midns and the couple of weeks old picture of cadets shows them mostly awake?

    I know for fact that the cadets were for the most part, sitting in their chairs for 4 hours before Barry read off the TelePrompter's, how long did Navy wait for Bush in that speech?

    I'm not seeing a million words there, I do remember CBS stating that the cadets were sleeping during Barry's reading. :shake:

    I think practially any picture can be taken out of context. Others implied that the mid picture was taken during Bush's speech which is total nonsense. Due to the time it took to get through security screening, they had to arrive a long time before the speech. I am sure during the speeches, both mids & cadets were attentive.

    .....Is Obama attending the game today??? Last year there were all kinds of chatter about that leading up to the game, but apparently the president does not always attend each year. Certainly the security screening takes longer if he is attending, but was very well organized last year.
