Anchors Aweigh my boys! Navy finally broke their long losing streak to Notre Dame by defeating the Fightin' Irish 46-44 in triple overtime in South Bend.
[ND coach Charlie] Weis said the 43-game winning streak had no meaning to him or the team. "They're worried about here and now. These kids are 17. You think they're worrying about 43 years?" he said.
Of course a 43-game winning streak has no meaning for Weis' lads because they can't even comprehend winning more than 1 game a season. Who do Irish sailors root for in this game? That's a trick question, such men must devote all their concentration on remaining erect – they have no time for games. And you can define 'erect' any way you want.
In other Catholic college football news, Boston College lost to Florida State 27-17, thus ending the Eagles hopes for an undefeated season. What the heck does Christ do on Saturdays anyway? I mean, I know he doesn't answer wager-related prayers, but one would think he'd at least help squads representing the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church smite their opponents. Unless Roman Catholicism is not the one true faith? Don't tell me I served all those years as an altar boy for nothing. -KD
