This is the one week of the year JM and I are "bitter rivals":shake: The countdown has begun to the CGA-MMA football game this Saturday at Kings Point. While it's not Army-Navy it's still a big deal for the two maritime academies. CGA is sending 20 busloads of cadets, nearly the entire regiment. It should be a fun day and week. GO COAST GUARD BEAT MMA!

Coast Guard Vs. Kings Point

Once there was a season when the USCGA and KP football teams were not scheduled to play each other. It seemed so unusual, that the coaches of both academies got together and decided that there should be some sort of competition between the 2 teams because of their great rivalry. They decided on a week long ice-fishing competition. The team who caught the most fish at the end of the week would win.
So on a cold northern South Dakota lake (a neutral site so no one would whine about home field advantage), they began their contest.

The 1st day, after 8 hours of fishing, KP had caught 100 fish and CG had 0.
At the end of the 2nd day, KP had caught 200 fish and KP had 0.
That evening the CG coach got his team together and said, "I suspect some kind of cheating is taking place." The next morning he dressed one of his players in blue and white and sent him over to the camp to act as a spy.

At the end of the day, the spy came back to report to the coach. The coach asked, "Well, how about it, are they cheating?"
"They sure are," the CG player reported, "They're cutting holes in the ice."
