VIDEO: The Big Game! (No, we can’t get you tickets)

On this week’s “The Show” Mike and JJ examine Friday’s Big Game—not A Big Game but THE Big Game—between the Poly and Wilson football teams—and no, they can’t get you tickets (Asia).

They’ll look at the history of the rivalry and the stakes of the rivalry—with Wilson at 6-0 for the first time in its history. They’ll also examine if you can call a rivalry a rivalry when one side has won the last 28 games.

Of course, it’s not just football, they talk college water polo and high school cross country and volleyball as well as what God was like as a teenager.

Welcome to “The Show.”
