For what it’s worth, where I live in Las Vegas, one of the pioneer casino owners was an engineer trained at the Colorado School of Mines who figured out he could make more money in a different business!

The Army-Navy game also marks the 59th anniversary of Tony Verna cuing the tape of a Rollie Stichweh TD for Army and Lindsey Nelson saying, “They did not score again! This is an instant replay,” and Verna saying in his ear, “What do you know! It works!”
