Re: the video below. I guess I REALLY am a geezer. I just don't appreciate Naval personnel, officers or mids, being cute.

Patrick J. MARCKESANO, is a non-grad. I remember the guy because he was in Crew 110 Plebe Summer. I believe he is the guy at the left side in the photo.

In 1948 we were required to call the plays on the field, not send them in from the sidelines. I was the QB of the Kenton, OH, wildcat team that won all 9 games we played that year. With three other backs to choose from, I would never have had the same back carry the ball more than twice in a row. I would talk to the linemen to help me know where they could open the holes. We had four or five plays we practiced a lot to be certain to get 4 or 5 yards when we needed them.

The local USNA Alumni Association just came out with a list of grads that it has emails for in the Naples Fort Myers area, and it list a Marckesano from our class. Doesn't ring a bell with me - does anyone know of him?

I just received the below message from Ed's son.
It sounds like Ed is doing O.K., but that it might just take some time for him to get back to battery.

Thank you for your concern. Ed has been released from the hospital and is being cared for by Sandy, Lisa, and her husband at Lisa’s home in Hoboken, NJ. He is just settling into all new routines and this milestone raises his spirits.

Ed is doing very well. Each day he continues multiple physical, neuro, and speech therapies lead by Lisa and Sandy. He is working very hard to regain his independence. He just opened his laptop for the first time, but typing takes a lot of fine motor coordination and extra time. His speech has improved and continues to improve daily. He also watched the Army-Navy football game. We think Ed will significantly benefit from using his laptop and communicating with his classmates and other friends online.

His long-term memory is crystal clear, but recall takes a second more than before. His short-term memory recall is not nearly as strong, but that is because his brain is remapping how it learns everything. Some neuro pathways must be rerouted and relearned. This just takes time and repetition.

Of behalf of Ed and our family, I want to wish all classmates, spouses, and family members a special thanks. Ed, Sandy, Lisa, and I cherish you all. We are so thankful for your outpouring of kindness, love, and encouragement. Reconnecting with Ed online will do much to buoy his spirit and charge on.

May God bless you and your loved ones this holiday season.

Our sincere thanks,
-Jack Tipshus

I blame our loss on that "white stuff" which kept coming down during the game and left the field wet and slippery. Grunts are used to it but I'd like to think that aboard ship we would just hose it down and avoid having to slosh through it. I thought an effort would be made during half time to clear it away but don't think it happened. I don't recall if we had to deal with it our four times there in Philly but I do remember the cold weather and our lack of ear muffs or other gear which I spotted yesterday. Hope the Mids enjoyed being invited to social gatherings at schools there as we did after the game .

Have tried for a week to call Ed Tipshus. Just get his answering service.It seems to me that he is not doing well. Any one, any knowledge?

Well, yeah. Two crucial penalties put Navy out of good field goal range, so the kicker missed. Wait 'til next year. Yeah. Army now owns CinC Trophy.
