Here are some cool old photos of the Air Force vs Wyoming game from November 3, 1962, the year they opened Falcon Stadium, taken by Stan Howey.
Ben Martin’s Falcons beat the Cowboys 35-14 and finished the season at 5-5 with wins over Colorado State, @ SMU, @ Arizona, @ UCLA and Wyoming, and losses to @ Penn State, Oregon, Miami (FL), Baylor and @ Colorado. I’d say that’s one hell of a schedule.
This year they beat Colgate and Army and lost ten games. That’s about all I’ve got about that so here’s another picture of a Cadet with a falcon.
Thanks to Sean O’Connell for his grandfather’s pictures!
Today is the most magical day of the football year because it’s Pro Bowl day!
This year, instead of the usual AFC vs NFC battle, we get Team Deion vs Team Rice! Um, Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice had a draft and picked the players for their teams that will half-ass it for the title of Pro Bowl champions!
Okay, okay, the Pro Bowl sucks. Goodell sucks. Deion sucks. Jerry Rice doesn’t suck but will if he continues on with this kind of crap. Please, just let it die.
Don’t watch the Pro Bowl. Spend time with your family, build a boat in a bottle or just stare at the wall. Anything but watch this tripe.
Still, if you must, you can watch the NFL Pro Bowl on NBC tonight at 530pm MST. We won’t judge you.
