Edgar Allen Poe’s timeless line from “The Raven” portrays a bird driving the narrator mad. In another time, the literary genius might have written of a West Pointer driven nuts by Army’s current losing streak to Navy.
Poe, most likely you are unaware, was a West Point Cadet until he was kicked out of the academy in 1831. He died in 1848 long before the first Army-Navy Game was played in 1890, so he was spared the anguish of even one such defeat.
