Showtime To Air Army-Navy Game Documentary

We've all come to love the "24/7" documentaries HBO does before big fights or the annual NHL Winter Classic. This year, HBO will be featuring the Flyers, but they're not the only Philly institution to get the documentary treatment. Showtime has announced that they will be airing "Game Of Honor" a documentary about the Army-Navy game, which has been played in Philadelphia 83 times.

Co-produced by CBS Sports and SHOWTIME Sports, the feature length documentary film titled A Game of Honor will chronicle the season-long journey of the West Point cadets and Annapolis midshipmen as they study at Ivy League-caliber universities, prepare to lead the world's most powerful military in a time of war and compete on NCAA Division I college football teams. The film will premiere on SHOWTIME on Dec. 21, just 11 days after this year's Army-Navy Game, which represents one of the most storied rivalries in American sports history. The game, naturally, will serve as the climax to the film.

The game will actually take place at Fed Ex Field in the DC area this year, but will return to Philadelphia next year.
