I'm watching the
Army-Navy Groundpounders-Squids game, which is to say the also-rans playin' for second place, seein' as how the Air Force Academy has already won the CinC's Trophy. That said (and you know I just HAD to say it), it's a pretty entertaining game, all things considered. Army tied it up with seconds left in the first half, despite the two Army turnovers that gave Navy their touchdowns. So we're at the half and the game is tied, 14-14.
I love this game, not so much for the football but for the tradition, the rivalry, the Spirit Messages, and all the shining faces of those ossifers-to-be. This really is "America's Game."
So. Halftime. Time to pour another beer and consider putting a match to a ceegar. We're still into that Sammy Adams "Winter Classics" 12-pack and there's some damned fine beer in that thang. We might buy another one of those.
