The annual Army-Navy football game has been a storied tradition for nearly a century, but the annual event produces more than just a winner on the gridiron: it's one of the single most well-attended college football games of the year, and as the NFL struggles to claim its players aren't dishonoring veterans with their national anthem protests, there can be no doubt that every attendee and every player at the game leaves with newfound respect for their armed forces.

Saturday's game was no exception, and before even the first play, there was a patriotic reminder of sacrifice and strength. In a show of cross-rivalry sportsmanship, the choirs of the Naval Academy and West Point joined together for "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Incredible.
