  1. Great video clip! I’m not a football fan, but I enjoy the rivalry of this game. It’s not just a game! Hope you are well, Jacqui. Just managed to get some downtime for internet – traveling from TN back to MA. It’s been a long week.

    • Army Navy is a classic. I went one year–almost froze my **–and got to watch the President switch sides at half time. What a ceremony.

      I hope your meetings went well in TN. I used to like traveling, but it wore me out. You seem to travel a whole lot!
