| December 27, 2013

The 2013 Military Bowl is underway in Annapolis.  While most people were sleeping, Jamie Summerlin was completing his 101 mile run from Shepherdstown, WV to the United States Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, and the famed Budweiser Clydesdales were waking from their temporary stalls at the Prince Georges Equestrian Center.

Kick off is at 2:31pm, but the parade at City Dock is just getting underway and will end with a giant tailgate at the stadium.

This will be a live blog and we will be updating throughout the day.  Check back often to keep up to date.

With 1:44, Maryland has the ball, trailing by 11—and they throw an interception.  Well so much for that touchdown, 2 point conversion, onside kick recovery and field goal to tie.

I think that Marshall is about to wrap this game up.

30,163 is today’s attendance.  This is the 2nd highest attendance of the Military Bowl’s existence. The highest was December 29, 2010 when Maryland defeated East Carolina–38,794. That game was played at RFK Stadium.

Everyone here is squawking about the Maryland uniforms. They are actually pretty cool–subtle shades of grey up close.  Maybe not so good for TV or distance.

Really inconsequential quarter so far. 6:44 left in the 3rd quarter and still 17-13 (Marshall).  Maryland driving and are now on the 35 with a 3rd and 1.

Sometimes, the public displays of affection are just a little too much.

A little bit of Wifi (how we can communicate with nuclear subs miles under the water and not get a wifi or cell signal in a stadium in Annapolis is beyond me) so here’s a game update.  With 4:08 left in the first quarter, Maryland is losing 7-0.  They have been unable to convert 3rd downs.

Teams are starting to take the field now for warm-ups while the Budweiser tailgate is in full swing with Jah Works entertaining the crowd.  If you are a reggae fan, they will also be appearing at Metropolitan on New Years Eve!
