I did not see the Army-Air Force game (was at a wedding), but I did get a surprise Saturday morning when I grabbed some guy’s New York Times, swiped the sports section and opened it up to find my photo of Army fullback Jared Hassin taking a handoff against Temple earlier this season on page D3.
It’s a cool story, too, about Hassin’s journey from being a West Point fan as a kid, to joining Air Force, and then, after transferring service academies, finding his way into the starting lineup against the Falcons on Saturday.
And here’s what it looks like in print:
This one comes after my photo of senior DE Josh McNary appeared in the New York Daily News last month.
I heard Yankees manager Joe Girardi was in the press box at Michie on Saturday, along with Boomer Esiason. Here’s some photos from the game from the AP’s Craig Ruttle. Also not good, Navy put up 76 points in their win on Saturday.
For those who saw the game, what did you think? What went wrong?
