  1. More fantastic shots! Thanks for all the great work over the years! Any time I can’t attend a game I look forward to seeing the pictures!

  2. My son plays at one of the academies and I know firsthand that these players must be congratulated big time since they have a very hard course load, occasional night watch duty, not the best food, and all kinds of other (silly) stuff but they still find the time and enthusiasm to play.

    • I agree Guido, my best friend who was also at the game graduated from West Point. Based on his stories, just getting through the academy is tough. Adding a sport is just that much harder. We’ve been to all four cup games and he was happy to see Army win for a change.

        I don’t know the rules for Army and Navy, but if they’re anything like USAFA playing a sport is required. Obviously it doesn’t have to be at the “varsity” level, intramurals and club sports count. But this might not be “adding” anything.

        Not trying to take anything away from anyone, just trying to clarify something.

  3. Paul E. Donahue says:

    As usual, outstanding action shots Paul.
