We just got back from Michie Stadium. As many of you are aware, Army's football prowess has declined in the past half century. There have been some bright spots, but the results have been rather dismal of late. Today gives us hope like a golfer who has just birdied the 18th. Tulane received the initial kickoff and scored three plays later at 13:56 of the first quarter. I figured we were in for a long day. Would you believe Army responded with 45 unanswered points?
We had a couple of opportunities to met with friends at the level of the plain, about halfway from North Dock to the stadium, but we did not want to forego the door to door service of the shuttle buses. Those of you who have been here know that the geography that made it an effective fort 250 years ago also made it a difficult venue for aging football fans today.
Happy hour will be on the banks of the Hudson under pleasantly clearing skies. The picture below was taken out the windshield of the bus looking north from West Point toward Newburgh.
