Many fans consider the Army-Navy game to be the best college football game each year, even without conference titles or championship game hopes on the line. No, this game is all about pride.
And Army took a shot at Navy's pride earlier this week, when a prank e-mail was sent out via the U.S Naval Academy's e-mail service regarding Saturday's game. Here's what was sent:
In preparation for the humiliating defeat Army will be dealing to us in the near future, I have some guidance to pass down.
“First: when we stage for march-on, we need to clean up our act. The internet has us pegged as dirty slobs – this year, we need to bring trash bags and clean up after ourselves. From what I understand, Army is embarrassed to even be associated with us.
Second: clean up the actual march-on. Please at least pretend to be in the military. Dress right dress, don’t talk at attention, etc. Seriously, this one is too easy.
Third: we need to have better accountability of our goats. This is also very embarrassing.
Fourth: when Army sings second, we will be respectful and professional.
Fifth: we need to be better at cyber.
Finally, I award you all with PMI (sleep ins) until Christmas. Maybe even a little longer, depending on how morale is going after Army defeats us on Saturday.
Go Army, Sink Navy!”
It remains to be seen who will win the game today, but there's no question that Army won the prank war.
