OT - Welcome back Friday Posbang! (The Army-Navy Edition)

Submitted by mgobaran on December 13th, 2013 at 9:55 AM

The Point system is back. So let's rekindle our Friday tradition of a posbang. We all deserve this one, after a long work week, and an even longer football season.

For the first time since August 31, 2013, the state of Michigan has no football over the weekend. So what are your plans? Is it Wife Season until bowl games start up? Is it your weekend to get out there and shop for Christmas? 

I'll start it off. 
My weekend will be filled with beer. I expect a heavy amount of snow shoveling. At least early Saturday. Then I will tune into the annual Army Navy game.

Looks like the line is at Navy -12.5 right now. IMO Army covers that. I haven't watched the two teams at all this season, but it is always a great game. The heart these guys play with is amazing. This was one of the most touching things I have ever witnessed from sports. 

My NCAA dynasties always start off at Army, so maybe I am biased, but GO BLACK KNIGHTS! Either way, this game spotlights the men and women who serve our country. And it's never a bad day to let them know we appreciate everything they do. So MGoCommunity members who are members of our Military, thank you.

Couple Notes:
Navy has won 11 straight football games
Army is 3-8 on the season
Navy is 7-4  on the season
Game is on CBS, 3:00pm EST

Who do you got? 

Weekend Plans?

Spending my Friday trying to cram in as much research (compiling a fish diversity database on the Ordovician/Silurian) before having to sit down and pound out a 10 page paper due today. Senioritis bites me in the ass again.

Father is a West Point grad. I go every year to this game. Hard to see Army struggle against those squids year in and year out, but the games have gotten more interesting in the past 2 years. Here's to the drought ending (hopefully):

Would like to see Army win and get back on the horse.  For outside fans streaks need to be stopped at some point to restore balance (for those who have specific interests they probably hope the streak never ends).  I was minutes and physical issues away from enlisting as an officer in the Marines!  As well I have several family members who were Marines!  Semper Fi!  However, as stated above to restore balance, yea.  Either way America is the spotlight as well as the men/women who support our country by serving it in the military.  

Also tonight, church family Christmas party.  Later a Redbox movie with the wife with either wine or Backwoods Bastard!  Tomorrow shoveling and football and things around the house need attention!  Would like to take my wife on a date to see Hobbit 2: desolation of Smaug.  Sunday, church then football and relax!  

Go Blue!
