College football Saturday open thread: The Army-Navy edition

The 111th meeting of Army-Navy goes down later today in Philadelphia. For the first time in ages both Army (6-5) and Navy (9-3) will be going to bowl games. Army is set to take on Southern Methodist University in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl in Dallas and Navy will be facing San Diego St. at the Poinsettia Bowl here in San Diego which we will be attending and which will represent a case of torn loyalties.

This game had traditionally been played on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and then about 20 years ago they bumped it to the first Saturday in December. Then, just a couple-three years ago they moved it yet again to the second Saturday in December. After thinking the move somewhat gimmicky, we now see it as a stroke of genius as there are no competing games save some lower division playoff games, so what is already one of college football's best rivalry now has somewhat of a bowl game feel to it as well. Well played, gents.

Go Navy - Beat Army.

Nice picture and post. Navy's 9th straight victory is unprecedented in such a heretofore evenly matched rivalry.
Looking forward to the Poinsettia Bowl. SDSU should be favored, they beat Air Force who beat Navy, but Navy performs well in post-season and will have a shorter lay off.

I digged this surprising prog DRM-removal and used it for removing drm from itunes protected audios a years ago, it did it well, btw. Then I bought mp3 player and it could't play my wma files so I decided to [url=]convert wma to mp3[/url] with drm-removal. It works like a charm! Just some clicks, you only need to click "Add" button and choose the folder of wma files. They will convert all the files in parallel at a really high speed. If you have the same question and need to convert wma to mp3, you should try drm-removal!
I am big lovers of audiobooks and actually wonder, if it legal. I bought a book (now its mine!) from napster, but may be its drm and I can't copy it to my MP3 player!! Thats dick!! I can remove drm - but what about legacy?

thanks in advance!
