Perfect location for 50th installment

One of Kosmo's favorite weeks is upon us because it's a rivalry like no other. And no, Kosmo is not talking about Michigan State vs. Michigan. Instead, Kosmo is referring to the state's best high school football rivalry, Birmingham Brother Rice vs. Novi Detroit Catholic Central.
The game will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Sunday when the two meet in a 2 p.m. game at Wayne State University, which Kosmo thinks is an outstanding choice for a location.
Quite simply, playing this game at a high school facility isn't a great idea. There's too much interest and too many people who attend this game every year.
In fact, a few years ago Kosmo recalls a story from a prominent spy about how the winner of the 50-50 raffle took home over $4,000 from the game.
That's how many people pack the parking lot and stadium, so playing it at a bigger facility in Wayne State should allow for more people to watch comfortably.
More people should make for the atmosphere this great rivalry deserves, and hopefully the usual great game.
Catholic Central doesn't seem capable of being stopped right now, but Kosmo was impressed by Brother Rice's win over Orchard Lake St. Mary's last week. Maybe the Warriors are starting to turn the corner and the playoffs aren't out of the question.
We'll see what happens, but no matter what, the location already makes the matchup a winner.
