Sir, you now have 8 days and a wake up until Navy beats Army in football, sir!!! It’s almost my favorite week of the year: Army Week! I’m sure you’ve all seen the HELM YEAH video circulating on social media, which is the latest in a series of installments we’ve enjoyed by ENS Rylan Tuohy and crew and I just can’t watch it enough times.

Will Navy beat Army? HELM YEAH!

The T-shirts look wicked cool, and are still in stock as of today. I wasn’t quick enough with my trigger finger on this year’s Mules Can’t Swim tees, so I made sure I got one of these. Check ’em out here:

There’s a ton of events going on next Saturday, from our annual brunch at Tir Na Nog (approx. 0930) to the ESPN’s College Gameday broadcast just outside the stadium and a ’96 tailgater in Lot F.

Sir, you now have 10 days and a wake up until Navy beats Army in football, sir!!! Hope to see lots of ’96ers out and about in Philadelphia next Saturday for the 118th Army-Navy game.

You can RSVP to him via the Facebook event he created on our class FB page, and he’ll also be tweeting gameday updates using #BeatArmy96 (or follow him @FlyNavyHartnett). BEAT ARMY!!!
