Today's Tidbit... Guantanamo's 1915 Fleet Championship ($)
Sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose.
Regular readers know I periodically write about football played by military teams. I especially like stories of games played by shipboard teams since they could play games whenever they were in port, and they did so regardless of the month of the year. Games among the battleship crews were notable since they had more sailors and Marines than many colleges had students.
Earlier stories covered a game played in France when the Great White Fleet toured the world in 1909 and games played at London's Ice Palace in 1910. So, when I came across the RPPC below, I figured there was a fair chance that it showed the crowd at the fleet championship football game between the U.S.S. Louisiana and the U.S.S. Arkansas at Guantanamo, Cuba, in March 1915.
