Air Force Football

I was recently at an Air Force Academy football game.
It's always a fun thing to see, even though I'm not particularly interested in watching sports. There are interesting traditions, such as cadets doing push-ups whenever Air Force scores, one per point. In a game like this where we scored over 30 points, that's a lot of push-ups!
And of course military bands and the like are always a pleasure to watch (and photograph).
And that's part of Our World this week, and all the colors make it my entry for PicStory's "color" theme this week!

  1. What a fun, colorful day! I'm not a big football fan either, but it is fun to see so many things going on! And beautiful skies, lots of color and you can feel the excitement. Terrific captures and a fun look at a part of 'our world'! Hope you have a great week, Al!

  6. I haven't seen a home game at a service academy - but the pomp and circumstance makes this special. My parents went to Army games at West Point, and there was a parade and the style is what they remembered, and we see here...

  7. That looks great. My sister and her family live in Colorado Springs and go to the Air Force games quite a bit.

  9. I've been to the academy, but didn't realize the stadium is so big. I see some of the spectators were wearing coats, so you must have had a nice fall day for football. Enjoy your fall, Al.

  11. Such a very different world! The uniforms are so crisp.
    I'm trying to judge what the temperature must have been - the crowd seems to range from T-shirts to anoraks.
