As I’ve said many times before, the Army/Navy game is one of the best events in all of sports. We’re talking about a historic rivalry.

Unlike the guys gearing up for Clemson, Alabama or Ohio State, the men playing in the Army/Navy game rarely go to the NFL.

Instead, they put on the uniform and serve America for several years following graduation. If you don’t appreciate that kind of sacrifice and commitment, then I don’t know what to tell you.

Clearly, a ton of people around America were also excited to watch all the action go down. You know this country is rolling when millions of people are tuning in for Army/Navy.

That’s just a fact, and I hope you all enjoyed the game!
