Finally, I went to my first football game of the season! Unfortunately, it was one of the most disappointing losses I’ve ever seen at Michie Stadium. Despite coming back from a 21-0 start, the Black Knights were unable to hold on to the ball with less than a minute to go, and Hawaii broke the tie with a field goal, winning the game. Ugh. But alas, this is what tailgates are for, as Army fans know best.
Also helping was having two of my favorite BC girls in tow – Mo Cooke and Kelly Luken! Mo came up to West Point on a work field trip (which are awesome by the way, every office should have them), and Kelly came from Long Island with her family for their annual West Point visit. A perfect storm of Eagles! I even got to show Mo and her work buddies South Gate. No trip to an Army football game is complete without a trip to the best bar in town (sorry Fireside, you’re second).
Hopefully Army can pull out a few more wins this season (they are 1-1), because they did look good on Saturday, despite the loss. ‘Til the next game cadets!
