Each year, the Bell Game is the ultimate showdown between Edison and FV. Both school cover their walls and floor with posters bashing each other or complimenting themselves. But I’ve always questioned one thing: why is the ultimate showdown a football game? Why can’t we have an ultimate tennis showdown? Why don’t we have a showdown in test scores or GPA? Or why do we even have to have a rivalry in the first place? Shouldn’t we be encouraging each other to do better instead of “hating” each other? I know it’s all in fun and games, but why do we have to be rivals? Why can’t we be friends instead?
