It's that time of year again. Time to put up the flag (once the wind dies down), dig out the old sweatshirts, and if they don't fit anymore, put pins on t-shirts instead. We'll have pizza and cheer on the team. When I was dating my husband while he was still a cadet at West Point, I went to the Army-Navy game up in Philadelphia. At that time it was the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and though I loved being there, I don't think I have ever been so cold. My husband (then boyfriend) tried to warn me to dress warm and forgo being a fashionplate for a day. Of course, I couldn't do that! So I sat in the stands with my teeth chattering. So, though I enjoyed the excitement and atmosphere of the game (and I can't even remember who won though I'm sure my husband could)I will be very happy to sit by our warm fireplace and watch the game. GO ARMY BEAT NAVY!!!
