This team holds a special place in my heart as it was this team that got me into playing and loving hockey for 20+ years now. when I was 5-8, my dad was stationed at West Point as a professor after he finished his graduate work at Texas A&M. From our housing it was just a small hike down the mountain to the football stadium and Tate Rink. We went to games all the time, and I have very fond memories of that rink as it was where I learned to skate. I also remember the mules kind of fondly.

My dad took my brother and I to check them out one weekend, and we ended up naming our first dog after one of the mules at the time, Trooper.

I have so much love for West Point because it was the best years of my childhood, and I know it was the same for my brother. We watched a lot of football and hockey. It’s an absolutely beautiful area, and it’s a great place to grow up as a 5-8 year old. Sorry for the rant, but thanks for this post!

Is the USMA still going to use “Black Knights” as their nickname? Back in April there were several sources saying that they were dropping the name “Black Knights” in favor of “The Cadets” or “The Corps.” I haven’t seen any update on whether they were going to change the nickname or not.

There are two things I hope for Atlantic hockey: that teams like Army and AIC become competitive nationally, and that Navy steps up and joins our conference. Got to see an Air Force – Army football game when I was a kid living in Colorado. It was an awesome experience. Service academy sports is awesome, I would love to see Army make it to the tournament (as would my dad I’m sure!) Excellent work, thank you for participating! I regret that I had absolutely nothing that I could’ve contributed to you for this. Legends Were Born In October 1956 64th Birthday Gifts T-Shirt Outstanding write-up! I think it’s worthy of…at least an unsigned COA and a coin. As a fellow military college graduate, I’ll always support West Point, except when they play us 😉
