That was pretty underwhelming for your 25,000th post RABBLE!

I was expecting a RABBLE-anche of greatest hits: ND, Yankee Stadium, San Antonio, ADs of old, plumbing, bussing, parking lots, concession prices, and on and on and on.

Oh well, I'm sure everyone's happier this way. Congrats on your milestone!

Beat 'em!

No, for my 25,000th post, I decided to let my "HUMILITY" shine forth like a beacon on the shoreline.

All the aforementioned topics previously addressed and other important statements , I'm sure, will be adequately opined in the next 25,000 posts.

I'll be dead before that happens tho. Maybe a "ghost" writer will continue on for me down the road.biggrin

In the meantime, I will diligently quest onward to my 50,000th post.

However when the day comes on this forum and we wont have a post count any more, I am ready to turn on my personal posting adding machine connected tyo my computer to give you all my current count at that time for all of you to enjoy, or in some cases, present that count to your round file.

You know, you are right.

Army HASN'T beat Navy since I started posting.

I mean 25,000 post in 11 years and 11 months and I 'aint got an Army win in all that time.

I mean, COME ON here!!  That ridiculous!!

Its like my sterling AWAY game record since I first traveled to see Army play a game on the road in an opponents home field (excluding neutral site games). ALL-- TIME  since the early 1950's.

0-22  noideanoidea

A reminder also. Since Philadelphia opened the Linc, we are 0-11 against Navy and Temple.

Now that's CONSISTENCY!! ohlordohlordohlordohlord

I'm REALLY starting to think whether I will ever see in my remaining time on Mother Earth if I will EVER see Army beat Navy in Footbal againl? Honestly. frown

I cannot take credit for that turn of phrase. I do not know who first uses it here, but it certainly was not me.

Beat 'em!

It was, Indeed, the late, great, BE54 that coined the term Rabbleanche to describe Rabbles style of posting...

Thank you! I thought it was probably one of the late members of this group, but I was afraid to guess which one of them it might have been.

Beat 'em!

Rabble post topic breakdown:

35% Anti-Notre Dame ranting
20% Anti-Yankees/Yankee Stadium ranting
15% Hand-wringing over new uniforms
15% Anti-Kevin Anderson ranting
10% Incomprehensible
4% "In my day.....:

1% Actual football discussion 


Just teasing. Congratulations on this milestone in your prolific tenure as this board's poster emeritus.

GBK85 - 

Great breakdown of the Rab's posts! (Maybe a little high on the percentage of actual football discussion...)
Like everyone on this board, though, I appreciate the trove of Army football knowledge that Rab shares with us.

Rab, it's an old cliche, but, "You've forgotten more about Army football than I'll ever know."
