    The First to 50 (from Silke)



    December 3rd marks the 106th competition between Army and Navy. Because both teams have 49 wins (7 ties) tomorrows winner will leave with the distinction of being the "First to 50!" The Commander in Chiefs Trophy is also on the line since Army beat Air Force on November 5th (and Navy also beat Air Force) Army is also coming off a four-game winning streak, so they definitely have some momentum going into this game. Regardless of either teams record, though, any cadet or midshipmen will tell you that it is the Army-Navy Game that counts in the end.

    I have very fond memories of the Army-Navy Game during my time as a cadet (my picture is shown above - I am standing outside Eisenhower Hall overlooking the Hudson River and if you look closely you can see the "sink navy" sign behind me). The week before the game was always filled with rallies in the mess hall and spirit missions in the halls. The midshipmen exchange cadets who had lived among us for the first semester were suddenly "fair game" and often became the target of many of these spirit missions. On the Friday before the game the entire Corps of Cadets gathered along Thayer Road to cheer on the buses with the football players departing for Philadelphia. It was the culmination of a week of fun and chaos in an otherwise sober and studious environment. At the game itself, the march onto the field is such an incredible feeling and one I will never forget. After that, it is all about having fun and supporting the team (and trying to stay warm - believe me those long gray overcoats are not warm, they are just heavy).

    What a great tradition and one I am proud to be a part of.

    GO ARMY, BEAT NAVY!
