Passion takes command

Academies' players, coaches say nothing outranks Army-Navy rivalry

November 21, 2007|By Sandra McKee | Sandra McKee,SUN REPORTER

Mayor Sheila Dixon told a gathering of officials and media at an Army-Navy luncheon yesterday at M&T Bank Stadium that although her father was in the Army, she will be a "neutral" observer at the Dec. 1 game that returns to Baltimore for the first time since 2000 and for only the fourth time in history.

It was a politically correct remark, and when Army coach Stan Brock took his turn at the microphone, he couldn't help but let everyone know he knew it.
