Thanks editors!

#2 Good luck to you and your boys, Robin. Navy is having a very good year...

And let me know whenever you are able to get to Philly!

#3 Hmmm. Brown had a short piece and they did show Will speaking, but given how long they filmed at the Point I suspect there will be more during the pre-game period tomorrow. They had half and hour or more last year IIRC .... I'll definitely keep my TV tuned to CNN.

Seafarious -- will do! And I know it's a long shot for Army, but Bobby Ross has done wonders with the team in just this one season so far. By the way, RBers should follow the link re: the Black Lion award - it honors the selflessness and service of Army's legendary player Don Holleder and the men of the 27th Infantry Reg (the Black Lions).

Holleder, an All-American as a junior, agreed to put aside his very likely chance at being named All-American in his senior year in order to play quarterback, where the team needed him most.

Holleder did lead his team to victory over Navy that year, but was killed in Vietnam after graduation ....

#4 BTW, I should have written "the first Black Lion award given to an Army player". The award has been given annually since 2001.

Holleder died heroically, by the way. He assumed command of a battalion during an intense battle when the commanding COL was killed and died while personally attempting to rescue wounded soldiers during a major firefight. I'm not sure what sacrifice Will Sullivan made for the Army team, but knowing him, I suspect he did so with grace and a good will, playing where Coach Ross needed him rather than where he would be in the spotlight. A fine young man who will be an excellent soldier and leader.

#5 I hate the Army-Navy game. I spent all those years in the Army, but we have the Middies right next door...
