Price of Business Visits the Play By Play Announcers for Historic Army-Navy Game

INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.

Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Rich DeMarco and Pete Medhurst.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with the play by play announcers of the historic Army-Navy game, Rich DeMarco and Pete Medhurst.

According to a publicist’s statement “While college football’s most revered and storied rivalries will look different this year in light of COVID-19 restrictions, Saturday, December 12th will see the Army Black Knights take on the Navy Midshipmen for the 121st time at Michie Stadium on the campus of Army West Point.”

“This year’s playing of “America’s Game” marks the first time the Army-Navy Game will be played at a home site since World War II when Annapolis hosted the 1942 game and West Point the 1943 game. Only the Brigade of Midshipmen and Corps of Cadets (students from each Academy) will be in the stadium; no fans will be allowed to attend.

“The annual Army-Navy Game is normally the last regular season matchup in college football, and Navy leads the series 61-52-7, having snapped a three-game Army winning streak last year.

“Play-by-Play Broadcasters Rich DeMarco (Army) and Pete Medhurst (Navy) know the history of this rivalry and the game’s traditions and their significance better than anyone. Rich has been calling Army’s games for 17 years, and Pete has been with the Navy Radio Network for 23 years.

“New for this Year’s Game: “Army-Navy House” Sweepstakes:

“USAA, presenting sponsor of the Army-Navy Game, wanted to ensure that fans could continue to celebrate the rivalry and tradition of the game despite not being able to attend. To do so, USAA has launched the “Army-Navy House” sweepstakes.

“To participate, fans can visit ArmyNavyHouse.com, upload a photo that shows off their Army or Navy fandom, share on social media using #ArmyNavyHouse, and they will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a trip to the 2021 Army-Navy Game in New York City. Two grand prize winners (one Army fan, one Navy fan) will be selected to win.

“History of the Army-Navy Game:

“The first Army-Navy football match-up was held on November 29th, 1890. The two academies faced each other 30 times until 1927 with the only games not being played between 1894-1898, 1909, 1917, 1918, 1928, and 1929. Since 1930, the game has been played annually with the only talks of canceling the game in 1963, shortly after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. However, Jacqueline Kennedy urged the two academies to play to keep some normalcy in the turbulent times.”
