Yes, this is partly about sports….oh, what am I saying….it is sports related. 🙂
Last week, the Captain and I flew to Baltimore to attend the Captain’s Alumni Dinner and to watch the Army/Navy game.
Of course, anyone (including my Captain) under the coat tails of Admiral Farragut…would have to cheer for the Navy! …and I am not even mentioning the twins were in the Navy as well as their father…so we are definitely a Navy family.
Oh, I guess I did mention it, didn’t I?
You know I can be a bit weird! 😉
The Alumni dinner was the night before. (more on that later) and then it was on to the game the next day where tickets had been purchased in blocks for all the alumni.
Our seats were 12 rows up from the field, right on the 30 yard line….giving one a false sense of security, thinking it would be warmer nearer the field!
It was so cold in Baltimore that It just reinforced why we live in Florida!
It was bitter cold….and the game watching produced frozen toes and fingers as the sun went down and the evening cold just got colder!
Ok…not completely frozen… but they were numb.
The Navy won 17-10….and they have won the last 13 meetings with Army.
But that is really not the point….the significance of our military playing together…it becomes “America’s Game”
It was an honor to watch the young people of America come together…they really are all “one”.
Did you… my readers, catch any of the Army-Navy Game Last Saturday?
I am still trying to thaw out all my extremities….;)
Give me the Florida sunshine and tropical waters anytime! 😉
Come on down to Florida, Sandy…the temp will be 75 today…unless the weatherman has it all wrong, which they have been known to do a time or two…:)
thanks for stopping by
No, I didn’t watch the game, but I’m sure some of my family did, Kari.
I’m wishing I were somewhere warm right now, Kari. I’m freezing even though it’s been 45 degrees today. I want summer, so I can thaw out. Smile!
