President Obama came to Annapolis today to meet with Democratic senators. He came on Marine One and landed at the Naval Academy, right outside my office.

It’s that time of the year again: Blue Angels at the Naval Academy. Every year the team of stunt aviators comes to Annapolis during Commissioning Week. It’s a highlight of the season for Annapolitans, and massive crowds line the banks of the Severn River to watch the show. You may remember that I streamed the event last year. It went so well I decided to do it again this year too!

Blue Angels: Live Streaming This Afternoon

This week is Commissioning Week at the Naval Academy here in Annapolis. As a result, the town is flooded with friends & family of the graduates from out of town, and parts of the city are closed off to traffic at certain hours. One of the major reasons for this is a favorite annual tradition: the Blue Angels show on Wednesday afternoon. Every year, the Blue Angels put on a demonstration during Commissioning Week, over the Severn River right next to the Academy grounds.
