It's not just a big game because both teams are undefeated. Or because it's L-W East's homecoming. No, it's a big game because the Patch editors have a friendly wager of epic proportions riding on it.
Don't worry, this bet has nothing to do with money. In fact, the stakes are much higher. For this wager, the Patch editors representing L-W East--Joe Vince in Frankfort and Paul Dailing in Mokena--and the Patch editors representing Sandburg--Ben Feldheim in Orland Park and Carrie Frillman in Tinley Park--are putting their dignity on the line.
Here's the bet: If the Eagles win, Joe and Paul will spend a day decked out in Sandburg gear. If the Griffins win, Ben and Carrie walk around head to toe in East wear.
And yes, there will be evidence. Most likey photographic and quite possibly of the videographic variety.
As a run-up to the game, the Patch sites will be posting stories this week to get everyone ready for the matchup. Plus, we want to hear from fans. Cheer on your team in our comments section and upload fan photos on our Facebook pages.
See you at kickoff!
