Decision 2010 Shen vs. Saratoga football rivalry contest tonight

Everyone has weighed-in on tonight's Saratoga at Shenendehowa High School football contest and it is expected to played in near hurricane conditions, but the thunder and the lightning will be on the turf at Steuerwald Stadium.

This is a fierce rivalry and I checked in with both town/city and school officials to find out what they had to say about the Blue State (Saratoga Representatives) said and the Green State (Shenendehowa/Clifton Park) Representatives said.

We divided Saratoga County up in Blue and Green with Ballston Spa as an independent, but all three teams share in tonight's outcome to determine their path in the playoffs.

While it didn't make print, Clifton Park Supervisor Phil Barrett did issue a public challenge to Saratoga Springs Mayor Scott Johnson with a friendly wager about the outcome of tonight's contest.

Barrett challenged Johnson that the losing public official would have to wear the opposing school's T-shirt or jersey at an upcoming City Council or Town Board meeting. Mayor Johnson appreciated the idea, but while confident in the Blue Streaks he declined, citing a need for proper decorum at the City Council meetings.

The two are rumored to still be considering a friendly wager, but it has not yet been made public.

Of course both coaches kept things civil in conversations with both Coach Steuerwald and Coach Jones as both are focusing on their squads and what they can control, avoiding any pre-contest controversy.

With weather gear on and Rite in the Rain paper in hand (shameless plug), I'll be on the sidelines, writing and Tweeting, soaking in (pun intended) the entire game.

If you're too weather weary, the contest is going to be broadcast on Time Warner Cable Sports, Channel 3.
