An Epic Joust in "The House that Ruth Built" (or a reasonable facsimile thereof)

According to this short piece on the New York Post website today, the Black Knights of Army and the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers will be meeting at Yankee Stadium in 2011. At least the new car smell of the Stadium's vinyl seats will have been replaced by the smell of stale spilled Budweiser by then.

This is a series of jousts that dates back to 1891, the second year that they were playing football at West Point. The Black Knights still lead the series 18-17, but the Scarlet Knights are on a five-game winning streak and should be even with the men from Michie Stadium soon.
I hope to see you there, and Go Knights! (you know which ones we mean) and Wear Red to the Game.
