ROSELLE PARK, NJ - It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving Day without the annual tradition of the Roselle Rams vs Roselle Park Panthers football game. This year was extra special as it was the 100 Year Game.  

Two communities divided by railroad tracks did not stop the crowd from coming together at Roselle Park’s Herm Shaw Field to cheer on their teams and the hopes of winning the game and the coveted “Golden Shoe” trophy.

In Roselle Park, the festivities started on Thanksgiving eve with the annual bonfire. Early Thanksgiving morning, many started their game ritual at Dowlings Pub, a local Irish bar and restaurant in Roselle Park who were serving up free Taylor Ham and egg sandwiches before the game.

The first quarter went by and ended with no score by either team. In the second quarter, on the very first play, the Panthers scored their first and only touch down of the game. The kick for the extra point was good to make the score 7-0. By halftime, the score remained unchanged.

The Roselle Park Marching Band entertained the crowd. That performance and other highlights from the game can be viewed in the video below. 

As the game resumed in the third quarter, it got a little heated as the Roselle coaches questioned a call by the referees which had some spectators commenting, to “let the boys play”! 

Roselle did score in the third quarter, however, the kick for the extra point was not good. That left the score at 7-6. 

In the fourth quarter, the Rams kept pushing but the Panthers were fighting back to keep their one-point lead. In the last few seconds of the fourth quarter, the Rams were really putting on the heat but to no avail. That brought the end to the historic 100 Year Game with Panthers beating the Rams 7-6.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
