Right up there with Cats vs. Dogs, Rome vs. Carthage, and Boxers vs. Briefs; Army vs. Navy is one of the oldest, most celebrated rivalries around. Navy holds the lead with a 55-49-7 record. Both Academies have produced Heisman Trophy winners, won National Championships, and U.S. Presidents.
Although they fight each other bitterly on the field of play, they fight together on the field of battle, representing the greatest team in the world, the United States of America. As a USMC Officer Applicant, I am partial to the Midshipmen. But win or lose, we should all be proud of what these young men are ultimately preparing for, and what they will do as members of our military.
Go America and Go Navy!
P.S. Army needs to bring these uniforms back, and they needed to do it yesterday.
