Army-Navy 2013 is today in Philadelphia.
Earlier this week, For The Win posted a couple of spirit videos for the game. Here’s a blurb on the Army one:
For a school that hasn’t won its biggest game in 11 years and enter Saturday’s meeting as 13-point underdogs, the folks at West Point are awfully confident ahead of the 2013 Army-Navy game. And if spirit videos have any bearing on what happens at Lincoln Financial Field, then the Cadets will be routing the Midshipmen in Philadelphia.
Here’s an Army spirit video, set to Kanye West’s Blood on the Leaves. It’s by Tosa Brooks and he doesn’t even need Auto-Tune as a crutch, YEEZY.

Here’s a blurb on the Navy one:
Here’s Navy’s, set to Justin Timberlake’s Suit and Tie. You’ll notice an instant difference in intensity.
With rhymes like “we enemies on the same team, I don’t mess with the sea, but you can see I want the CIC [Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy]” and “we got John Paul Jones shaking in his coffin,” Army’s video was going to be tough to beat. Though the JT-inspired song is perfectly acceptable, Kanye and solid flows > JT and soft crooning every time.
The Navy video:
I’ll add to this that if you are a college football fan you need to add this game to your bucket list. It’s the best game I’ve ever been to that didn’t involve Clemson. I went the last time the game was at M&T Bank Stadium in 2007 and I hope to go again when it’s in Baltimore in 2014 and 2016. You won’t be missing any games from your favorite teams with the currrent weekend this game is played on, so you have no excuse.
