USNA Spirit Spot

With the Army-Navy game coming up on Saturday (followed by the inevitable Navy victory celebration Saturday afternoon) I looked around for any clever "Spirit Spots" (short videos, often with a humorous theme, made in support of a service academy athletic contest). While the submission from SUBASE New London doesn't seem to be available on the 'net yet, I found a fairly clever one from a USNA organization called the "2-8" (I'm assuming that's a company number or some such thing -- I'm not a USNA grad, obviously). While I'm not a big fan of the culture at the Naval Academy wherein 21 year old kids get to lord around over 18 year old kids, I can appreciate a good sense of humor about the absurdity of the situation, which I believe this video demonstrates (intentionally or not):

Go Navy, Beat Army!

With the game over and the Navy naturally the victor, I found it ironic that the Army had difficulty taking enemy territory to ensure victory...

Okay, After a little bit of searching, I found it.

I would have liked to see the unedited version.

If you didn't go to the Academy then who are you to judge and presume to know anything about it guy.

For real man. USNA develops premier leaders in the fleet. You first have to be a follower before you can be a leader, therefore upperclass lead 18-year olds.

Great post, I've been following since the first edition! and I also think is very informative too, also the sources and the video wasn't bad enough, It's a shame because I don't have time to come across this blog every day.
