Got nothing against Army. Worked with some from the 196th Light Infantry Division back in 68-69. Its just that you guys can't play football. Go Navy beat Army. :)

I had nine uncles on my mother's side of the family, 3 marines, 4 army or army air force, and two master chiefs. Of the 70 cousins, more or less, I really only know about the tunnel rat .

 

GO ARMY!

I hear that the Anthem was well done. I tuned in a few minutes too late to catch it.

Getting a little tired of Lundquist talking about poor Navy playing so many games in a row and getting beat up.

Some have asked about the Army uniforms. The commentstors didn't explain it well. They are an homage the the 82nd Airborne in WWII. Their helmets have the various regimental and batallion markings that were worn during D day and the various regimental crests are on the front of the jerseys.

The flag on the sleeve is the type worn on the jump uniforms. The field is to the left. On todays uniforms it's reversed with the field to the right.

On today's uniform, for flags worn on the right shoulder the field is to the right so that the flag is seen to be advancing, not retreating.

That is, the Flag's own right. Heraldically, to dexter.

That is, to sinister. I know it's been more than a few decades since the change, but I still don't care for it.

 

OH! The Invocation and Anthem:

 

OOOPS! That 1st Youtube was last years.

 

Here is this years:

A comment from a Navy-heavy group I'm in:

" I blame the SecNav, CNO, and the MCPON...

After removing Traditional ratings and going with meaningless occupation codes.... Navy thought they were Army and thus lost."

Regardless, it technically comports with the US Flag Code so I'm okay with it.

Great game, great score.

 

LOL, bet nobody there was considering taking a knee at the Anthem.

 

I really enjoyed the singing today.
