    Here's a pic of the Army player falling into formation post-game. They sang a song I'm not familiar with, then everybody yelled "Beat Navy" at the end. Good stuff.

    we were on the south side of the Jack, never heard 'em.

    My friends on the north-east side said they shook the ground. Jack Trice must have some major sound dampening built into it.

    Re: Army Pre-Game Highlights/Festivities

    Also, why did they do the game ball parachute jump so early? I really wanted to see them land in the stadium, but didn't want to go in from tailgating 2 hours early.

    So they had time to fix the divot from the guy with the Army flag.

    Re: Army Pre-Game Highlights/Festivities

    Yeah, I also enjoyed the Blackhawks flying overhead. And add me to the list as to trying to understand why they parachuted in so early. When I saw them come down, the stadium was pretty much empty. I think it would have been cool if they delivered the game ball or something, when the stadium is full.

    Thanks for posting it.

    The field had to be cleared to be deemed safe enough by the pentagon, and because families and children lined up on the field to bring in the teams, they had to do it super early. I was also disappointed that it wasn't later!

    Didn't think about that, good point.. But, it would have been entertaining watching those jumpers try to land around thousands of little kids on the field.
