Get ready to watch the pigskin fly (or more likely, be carried gingerly down the field) as the 118th edition of the Army-Navy football game gets underway at Philly’s Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday. The Army’s Black Knights triumphed last year, breaking the Midshipmen’s 14-game winning streak, but this year's match-up is considered too close to call.
On this episode, the Warzone breaks down the odds and places a high-stakes bet on the outcome (anyone for sky-penis tats?). Whatever happens, the bigger event will likely happen off the field, when the Navy unveils its $457 million new marketing push, complete with a Madison Avenue-approved new slogan: “Forged by the Sea.” In response, the gang cooks up a new motto for the Army: “Just do your best. It’s all we ask.”
