Army and Navy met again Saturday evening on a snowy field in Philadelphia to play a football game that has been played for over 100 years.
The Army-Navy football game is one of the most renowned sports traditions in the United States.
This year marks the 118th time the two teams have met. The teams meet in a neutral city between their respective academies. They often play in NFL stadiums due to the enormous number of active duty and veteran fans who wish to attend.
Before the game, the choirs of the Annapolis and West Point academies joined together to sing the national anthem. It was a solemn moment and was made even more beautiful by the falling snow.
Army-Navy: Army’s 14-13 win in snowy conditions
Army is owner of the Commander-In-Chief’s trophy for the first time since 1996 after defeating rival Navy 14-13 in the 118th edition of the historic Army-Navy Game.
In snowy Philadelphia conditions, Black Knights quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw led the game-winning, 13-play drive that ended with a one-yard Bradshaw sneak into the endzone with 5:10 left on the clock. The win was secured after a final drive by Navy fell short when Bennett Moehring’s 48-yard field goal attempt drifted just left of the goal post as time expired.
You can bet your ass that no one in this stadium was kneeling.
