    I'm with the docta, no passing, just run run run.

    Btw, when will this trend of ugly, solid color unis end? God they look bland and ugly.

    Navy passed the rock a couple times. They've ruined the game.

    Army threw only once and won, lol. So it almost happened, 3 total pass attempts the whole game.

    It's old skool football in the snow. Boring, low scoring, and I loved it.

    Yep, like going back in time about 60 years or more. Tough loss for Navy.

    Did you know "BILLS" is an acronym: Because I Like Losing Superbowls.

    The funniest joke I heard about them was by Letterman: "I don't want to say the Bills choked but their team physician is Dr Heimlich."


    BTW, I say that as former Bills fan.
    I'm sick of wearing pants and having responsibilities.

    As a Lions fan I can't say anything.......at least the Bills have made a Superbowl........we have yet to have that experience.

    No. The aircraft carriers and their attack craft are the tip of the sword. Everything else is a support vehicle save for submarines. That strategy was born of WWII and has been that way since.

    So we should really call it the airforce who happen to be using waterborne runways.

    Most of the flight activity taking place on "waterborne runways", ie aircraft carriers, are navy fighter pilots I believe. Navy has a huge flight component, and that includes Marine pilots also. Hence the Blue Angels etc. My roommate in college was Navy ROTC and served on ships in both gulf wars as a Naval officer. He wanted to "fly jets" upon graduation but didn't pass some eye tests, so didn't get into Flight School. Not all military aircraft are flown by the Air Force. Most Air Force operations originate from land AF bases. And generally speaking, the Naval aviators are considered the cream of the crop, with all due respect to the AF.

    (ie, see Top Gun and Officer and a Gentleman etc, lol)

    Texas (6-6) is playing Missouri (7-5). They should call this the Participation Trophy Bowl.

    You could have always watched 7-5 Arizona vs 6-6 Purdue which was on at the same time. It seems like half the bowl games have those kind of matchups.
