Navy will again wear special uniform’s for their biggest rivalry game, for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy against Army, December 8th.

The most striking element of the uniform is the gold stripe on the helmet. High in the back, down to the facemask in the front, Navy tells us this is to  mimic the shiny band on a navy dress cap. We think this is a very liberal translation, but it makes for a very interesting and unique helmet.

Have to enjoy that the sample was a Roger Staubach

The uniform is mostly with with blue trim, small accents of yellow on the arm. The helmet sports the naval flags to spell out “Beat Army,” which is a really cool touch.

There is a “Navy” tramp-stamp, which I’m not a fan of. Lower backs and butts should be free of legible items or decoration for men and my daughters.

The Shoulders are navy with white numbers, and the tops of the shoulder have the yellow Navy patch.

Socks will be low, plain blue. The undershirt (which somehow, has become as much of a uniform announcement as any other part) will feature a red and white hoops/bib design, and the “Don’t Tread On Me”  made famous by real patriots way before being absconded with by particular political interest groups.

 

How do you like it? Do you enjoy seeing our military get geared up special for their annual rivalry game? Who do you have? Wait, you DO watch this game, correct? Its an amazing tradition and should not be missed.
