This awesome, long sleeve tee features a double sided graphic commemorating the U.S. Military Academy Army Black Knights' victory over the U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen in the annual Army-Navy football game. The sleeves read, "Army v. Navy 1 Dec.84." The front of the tee features a spoof graphic of the Ghostbusters logo except instead of a ghost, there's a goat.

The goat is the Midshipmen's mascot and a mule is the Black Knights' mascot. Every year, the teams attempt to steal each others mascot before the annual game. The heists were officially banned by both academies' leaders after the 1992 heist resulted in zip-tied army officials and a police helicopter chase. However, the mascot heists haven't stopped completely and attempts are still made by both schools to kidnap each other's hoofed brothers-in-arms.

The 1984 Army-Navy Game was played in Philadelphia. Most games are played in Philly because it's a central location between both schools. The Army Black Knights', known as the Army Cadets at the time, won the game 28-11. It was their first win against the Navy Midshipmen and their first winning season since 1977. After the Army Navy Game, the Army Black Knights' went on to beat Michigan State, 10-6, in the Cherry Bowl, which was their first ever bowl appearance.

Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Hanger fading on shoulders and fading throughout, bleach spots on the back, see pics.
