RBNY To Play U.S. Navy on Deck of USS Intrepid

If you've never seen it, I highly recomend you see the 1978 film The Boys in Company C. As where may have bigger names and a higher caliber of play but this is a much better film overall. Plus it has R. Lee Ermey's debut performance as a hard-assed drill sergent years before he made his iconic appearance in Full Metal Jacket.

Speaking of soccer-military tie-ups, on May 21st at 2 p.m., Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen from U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard ships will square off against the New York Red Bulls on the flight deck of the USS Intrepid in 6 v 6 matches. This is a real special event; what better way to celebrate Fleet Week than by playing against the U.S. Navy soccer team from the USS Roosevelt on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier?

I have to see this. If you can sneak out of work come join me. And Ray Ban aviators are a must.

R. Lee is awesome. Had lunch with him once. Will never forget it.
