The Army–Navy Game is an annual college football game between the teams of the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, New York and the United States Naval Academy (USNA) at Annapolis, Maryland. The USMA team, "Army", and the USNA team, "Navy", each represent their services' oldest officer commissioning sources. As such, the game has come to embody the spirit of the interservice rivalry of the United States Armed Forces.


It is one of the most traditional and enduring rivalries in college football. The game is nationally televised by CBS, having previously aired on ABC from 1992–1995. Instant replay made its debut in the 1963 Army-Navy game.


The most recent game in the series was held at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 6, 2008. Navy won by a score of 34-0. It was the first shut-out in the series in 30 years and marked the seventh consecutive win by Navy. Navy now leads the alltime series with a record of 53 wins, 49 losses, and seven ties.


MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:

The Monday Mystery Guest is one of our followers as listed at the top of our blog. Here are the clues for this week, including yesterday, which we didn't post, and for today:
1.- The MG is the same as the number of Stooges.

2.- The MG is really GReat, like a lot of us.
3.- The MG's names have an international quality: one is like and Italian statue, one is like the inhabitants of what is now Mexico before the Spanish exploration, and one has a name that is reminiscent of a crisp tortilla filled with ground beef, shredded lettuce and cheese and chopped tomatoes.
4. The MG is probably very fond of the gentleman who can be seen and heard by clicking HERE.

5.- The MG's mom and dad recently visited US.

6.- The MG must eat a lot because chow is a favorite vocabulary word.

VOTE FOR US - PLEASE.
Radar, your Voting Team Captain, with my daily plea for your help. Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) was up to #169 in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting this morning. I've been trying to give you reasons to vote for AHGRR and I'd like to give you one more; her name is Stacey. Stacey has been patiently waiting for her new furever home for a while now. Perhaps you could find room in your heart and home for Stacey. Maybe you can help sponsor Stacey while he waits for his new home. Even if you can't, you can still vote for AHGRR and possibly help Stacey. Here's a biography on Stacey:
4 year old Stacey is a sweetheart girl who LOVES people, including children of all ages, but she will not share her home with another pet. She just wants to be the "only furkid". She's housebroken and very loving. If you would like to offer Stacey a forever home, please submit and application which you can download from our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) Please email or mail it to AHGRR. - Radar and The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
