Wlady’s smug little West Coast bias shines brightly in his little riff on Notre Dame’s playing Navy.
First, the Navy game has been a long tradition dating back to the days of Roger Staubach and probably before that, when Navy actually fielded a more than competitive team. Second, the game is great for Navy because of the gate it collects and serves as a recruiting tool.
We can recall many moons ago sitting up in the upper deck at the old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore watching Navy take on Notre Dame, and cheering on the Irish. It was great for Navy and great for Notre Dame alums in the region.
