Army-Navy Game: Cheers for Trump, Boos for Liberals, and Displays of Patriotism

The Army-Navy game is always fun to watch, mostly for the competition, but also as an opportunity to cheer on the talented men who choose to sacrifice their 20’s (and for some a shot at the NFL) to serve our nation.

This year’s version of the Army-Navy game had some extra added excitement because the President-elect decided to make an appearance at the game. When Donald Trump was shown on the jumbo-tron during the first half, the stadium erupted in cheers!

The future commander in chief attended the 117th game between the military academies at West Point and Annapolis, which is being held on relatively neutral ground in Baltimore. The M&T Bank scoreboard showed the president-elect late in the first quarter; he waived and drew cheers from the crowd, though not at the level of the noise generated by Army’s first-quarter touchdown.

At the same time the students from both schools, the US Military Academy in West Point, and the US Naval Academy in Annapolis , did their best to show that their schools were counter-cultural and not at all PC.

Mocking the college trend toward “safe spaces.”

Make Football Great Again

The point is that the student-warriors who attend West Point and Annapolis are not at all like the other ‘snowflakes’ on college campuses across the country. Perhaps the most explicit evidence of this truth was seen at the start of the game as the National Anthem was performed by a choir of combined Army and Navy cadets. It was a beautiful moment of collegiate solidarity and a reminder that not every millennial in America has abandoned belief in our great nation.

Awesome.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
