For the time being, it has almost returned to being an annual affair, just like the old-timers from the 50s to the 90s remember. Rye flies along the Sound?s salt marshes to the Hutchinson River rook of the PELHAM PELICANS for the 47th rekindling of a great football series dating back to 1952.
Rye and Pelham played for 33 straight years from ?52 to ?92 sans ?54. A fellow SWIAC and CWL (Central Westchester League) charter member, the Blue and White nest comfortably in third place of all Garnet antagonists in games played at 46, but plummet with their distinctively pouched bills coming up very empty at 39-5-2 (.886%). Victims of 17 straight crash landings against Rye since 1977, these totipalmates of the family pelicanidae look to ruffle Rye?s feathers in Game 5.
PLUCK THE PELICANS ! PLUCK THE PELICANS ! PLUCK THE PELICANS !
