Indo-Jew Bowl VII

East meets Middle East on the gridiron for Skokie's 7th Annual Indo-Jew Bowl, the "annual zenith in all that is Indian and Jewish life." The Jews are favorites, having taken last year's victory 21-0, but word around Niles North High is that the Indos are hungry. Bring a few cans for the food drive and brave the weather at noon on Thanksgiving afternoon (map of Niles North High School, setting for the cafeteria scenes of Sixteen Candles, here).
