    Gridiron rivals to settle 1993 score

    These two teams are going to play each other again to settle a score!

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/04/24/gri...tch/index.html

    It's been dubbed the No. 1 high school rivalry in the United States. But last decade, Phillipsburg High School and Easton Area High School left the football field without a clear winner: a 7-7 tie.
    Back then, there was no overtime in high school games, and it's stung ever since. In gridiron parlance, it's known as "kissing your sister."

    "I didn't know how to feel, stopping the end of my high school career being on a tie," said Bruce Lebitz, an inside linebacker for the 1993 Phillipsburg team.

    That's about to change. The gridiron grudge match will be played this weekend. There will be no ties this time around. They're even breaking a century-old Turkey Day tradition, all in the name of who gets the bragging rights from that night so many years ago.
    Gatorade, the sports beverage company, announced that it was organizing a replay: the same players, same coaches and the same field. NFL stars Peyton and Eli Manning will serve as honorary coaches for the rival teams. Ten thousand tickets to the game were sold in 90 minutes.
    The game will be played at 3 p.m. Sunday at Lafayette College's Fisher Stadium in Easton. Footage of the game will be available on http://www.missiong.com.

    Let's see... 18 in 1993 would put them at 34 now. Should be interesting if not sad.
