This could at least be entertaining, 30 somethings playing football again.

Gatorade is bringing a special edition of the annual "Battle of the Hill" rivalry football game between Easton High and Phillipsburg High - traditionally played Thanksgiving morning - to Lafayette College's Fisher Stadium, as members of the 1993 teams suit up April 26 to replay a game that ended in a tie. The date and location are tentative.

The event, called the Gatorade REPLAY, is part of a documentary showcasing one of the greatest high school rivalries in the nation. These two blue-collar towns, separated only by the Delaware River, have faced off almost annually for 102 years with the first official meeting in 1905. Easton leads the series 57-40-5.

This reminds me of that movie "The Best of Times" with Kurt Russell and Robin Williams.

I see a lot of broken bones, torn ligments and Bengay in the future!

You can watch two "episodes" online. It reminded me of a similar show on TV that followed an Alabama high school team for a season -- sort of a reality show for guys.

Yeah, that was it. John Parker Wilson's little brother was one of the football players. Found this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-A-Days) on Wikipedia.
