In the same traditions first set 111 games ago, the 112th Army VS. Navy football game took place at Washington D.C. on Saturday. With a toss of the coin by President Barack Obama, Navy Midshipmen didn’t waste much time to take possession during the first half, though the Army Black Knights fought valiantly to score at the end of the half. Tied at 14-14, both rivals tied at 21 apiece during 3rd quarter. Unfortunately, the Black Knights just couldn’t break through at the last quarter and the Midshipmen won it again in a 10th consecutive fashion. Though the game was a hard fought one for both sides, precious rewards for their efforts came in the forms of Nike Destroyer Jackets. A tonal black Melton wool with leather sleeves for the Army and royal blue with black sleeves for Navy. Each embroidered with their respected emblems in gold threads as well as a small Nike marking on front. On back, the branches of the two military service stenciled in leather. Along the inside of each jacket’s placket, Nike added the Army’s motto of “This We’ll Defend” and Navy’s “Don’t Tread On Me” also in gold thread. Both are now available at NikeStore.com and select Nike retailers.
