St. Edward vs. St. Ignatius

Watching Catholic boys ripping each other to bits is quite a thrill for the folks in the bleachers clad in blue and gold (Iggie's) or green and gold (Ed's). Even during a full-blown snowstorm, the cheering never stops -- it just goes back and forth from one side of the gridiron to the other. Afraid lest they miss a single play, shivering fans make a halftime pilgrimage en masse to the concession stand. Popcorn and hot cocoa can be very fortifying.
