By Nigel Campbell

AMEEEERRIIICCCA!!

Nothing makes us feel more proud than watching a mass of shirtless able-bodied Naval Academy freshmen climb on top of each other to get to the top of a giant greased pole. (They then retrieve something called a Plebe Dixie Cup hat and replace it with an upperclassmen’s hat.)
