Before the game we went to the Alumni sponsored Brigade tailgate party. Everyone filled up on brisket, smoked sausage, honey bbqued chicken, apple chipotle potato salad, cookies, brownies and soda. This sure beats filling up on expensive, heartburn-inducing stadium food. We were really glad that Jeff could meet us for the game.
We found some removable Go Navy tatooes for Joe's Under-eyes.
John sat with the other Midshipmen while we took our loftier seats. It was a really fun game, mainly because Navy won.
When we got back to the hotel after the game I saw a table of Missou fans lamenting the day's loss. I had to start the conversation about how when Missou made the first touchdown in the first 23 seconds that I thought it would be a long game. They brought up the point that their team seemed to go home after the first minute of play. Then they brought out the point that they had a hard time coming up with insulting things to say about the USNA. They couldn't even think of any good jokes about the navy. I thanked them for being so patriotic to let Navy win. I didn't bring up the point that they could look on youtube for Anti-Navy spirit spots put out by Army and Airforce who don't worry that they are being un-American for trying to defeat Navy.
Go Navy-Beat Army!
