    when Army and Navy play their annual rivalry football game this year on December 8, take a close look and the Army uniforms....on the jersey numbers and sleeves, and on the helmet stripe, they have added military maps from the Battle of the Bulge:

    That's pretty cool. However, as a former Marine a have to pull for Navy. I really enjoy watching this game every year.

    That's cool. My dad was Army and my next door neighbor was a Captain in the Navy. Every year Army flag at our house, Navy flag at theirs. Not much better rivalries out there.

    Go Army!

    Those look great. My nephews friend plays for Navy, they have
    an awesome program and a great coach. I am surprised his
    name is not brought up at larger programs.

    Great tradition, no matter the records. I grew up near West Point and went to games every year as a kid.

    Very cool. An actual good reason for an alternative uniform.

    When I was a kid we lived in the DC area, lots of military families of all services lived around where we lived. The Army Navy game seemed to me to be the biggest college football game of the year, from all the attention it got from the people around me. We were Air Force so I was neutral, but it still was a big deal. This was before cable,ESPN and all, and eight college games on at the same time on Saturdays, and there was no big college in the area that commanded everyone's attention. I actually cared more about the local high school team. But I thought Army Navy was the pinnacle of college football.
