Go Navy-Navy-Navy

The slogan of the day is BEAT ARMY (sir!). 

If Navy wins today it will be 10 straight wins.  As a matter of fact, the last time Navy lost was the weekend that my husband and I got engaged back in 2001.  Not the greatest omen, eh?  Thankfully I'm not a very superstitious person.

If you love tradition and flyovers and men in uniform and (mediocre) college football, I urge you to tune in.  There is something very special about Army vs. Navy.  A respectfully vicious rivalry.  One of the best things about Army Navy are the spirit spots - short videos that the midshipman and cadets make to show their pride in their schools (and of course to tease each other).  Think of them as low-rent but more genuine Super Bowl commercials. 

Here are a few of my faves from this year so far:

Teach Me How To Mid
(I swear I could write a whole blog post on just this video and how I totally see my college self in these girls prowling around Annapolis, but I won't embarrass myself)

Party Rock Anthem

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I am soooooo enjoying having my family back in tact for snuggling up in a warm house with college football.  Bliss!

We must be long-lost kindred spirits.... I told someone yesterday (before I read this post) "Yeah, Navy won. Again. They've been winning since the year Paul and I got married. I'm sure that's why." Or maybe we are just two girls who like to think the world revolves around them???? :o) Either way, I laughed out loud at you thinking the same thing.

Hi, I'm Jill!
Extrovert. Mom of two. Wife of a cute Naval Aviator. Lover of wine. When I'm not chasing my two kids around town you will find me writing, taking too many photos, and researching the ten future areas the Navy could potentially (but probably won't) PCS us. We are fish out of water, landlocked at 7,000 feet. For now.
