Go Navy, Beat Army!

That weekend is coming again.
Yes, this Saturday, the Navy football team will, once again, beat the Army into total submission.
There is not a single doubt in my mind about it.
But, for the first time in many many years, I will more than likely miss the game.
I am working all weekend.
Because I did not check to see when the game was when I filled out the schedule.
Damn it.
Kick off is high noon, Philadelphia time. That is 9 am, my time. And I will HAVE to be sleeping, because I will have worked Friday night, and am scheduled Saturday night.
I will be begging to be on Call Friday night, more than likely.
I can't believe I scheduled myself for Army Navy weekend!
As I believe I mentioned last year, this game is huge. All four years I was in the Navy, I was involved in the filming of a commercial for the game. They have this competition for the Command area that can make the best commercial. We never won, so "my" commercial never aired. But we didn't care, it was a blast doing them. Then, on game day, everything stopped on every base and every ship. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Oh wait. Thats something else.
Anyways. We would all be glued to the TV. We laughed, we cried, we yelled. I still do all that on Navy Army game day.
This year, I am betting I will be yelling Go Navy! In my sleep. You can count on it.

And on another completely unrelated downer, we discovered Monday night that my fearsome (fearful?) black cat, Jack the Ripper, apparently got outside, and he is now gone. As in we cannot find him. So now we are down a cat, and a dog. Granted, I know where Cheese went, but the loss of Jack breaks my heart. He is an odd little cat but I loved him.

I hope your cat finds his way back home! It's so scary when things like this happen.

I hope you manage to get put on call Friday. Here's hoping for a low census.

Oh, Mie - I am so sorry to hear about Cheese (though I get it completely) and Jack. That is so sad. :(

I am sorry to hear about Jack .. perhaps he is just off having an adventure and will come back .. I am sure hoping so .. no, I dont want to think about the alternatives or the bad things that prowl your area ..


Mimi said...

I'm totally clueless, is the Army Vs Navy game telvised?
