The NCAA has gotten so ham-handed about pushing progressive politics that I’ve pretty much blown off college football altogether. But at 3 today on CBS there’s one patriotic Americanos can trust.
It’s the Army-Navy game, with all the tradition and celebration of patriotism that go with it. Navy has a serious winning streak going, but you never know what will happen in this one.
Football purists might complain that the level of play isn’t as high in this match-up as it is between other college powerhouses. And there’s something to this. Cadets and midshipmen, after all, are not selected first and last for their football skills. But there are compensations, even above the fact that these are disciplined and capable young men committed to serving their country. Consider:
Go Army and Navy, without which services there could be no America.
