Found January 25, 2012 on Redskins Blog:
This week, the Redskins added this commemorative Army-Navy football to the display case in the lobby of Redskins Park. For fans of amateur athletics, this Dec. 10th game was an absolute gem, befitting the game’s first trip to the Nation’s Capital.  Both teams resorted to a ground-n-pound offense that’s become synonymous with academy play, and the game came down to the final minutes of the fourth quarter. With 80,789 people at FedExField to see the Nation’s Greatest Rivalry, it was the rivalry’s largest attendance in nearly three decades, since the game went west to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. in 1983. All in all, it was a great game, and a big win for the Navy Midshipmen.  Now, it will also be remembered forever, here at Redskins Park. Whether you “Hoo-rah!” “Hoo-yah!” or “Oo-rah!” (or some variation thereof), congratulations and thank you for your service.
