cheer from the stands at a St. Edward-St. Ignatius football game
The Dawg Pound doesn't hold a bone to the roiling student sections when the Eagles and Wildcats tangle. Bred at family gatherings and on grade school playgrounds, the annual rivalry divides cousins, friends and even brothers. The battles were so intense that the game took a 14-year hiatus beginning in the 1950s. With this year's Holy War slated for Halloween night, expect all the crazies to be out.
