A Century of Tradition
EASTON, PA - James was commissioned to paint a one-of-a-kind, original for the Easton Diamond Club titled "A Century of Tradition." This painting will commemorate the 100th high school football game between Easton, PA and Phillipsburg, NJ. For a century, Easton and "P-Burg", two bordering towns that are separated by the Delaware River have been playing their annual Thanksgiving Day football game. This monumental game highlights the heated rivalry, tradition and history between the two communities. The first-ever meeting between Easton and Phillipsburg occurred on December 2, 1905. All games have been played at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. The Easton/P-Burg rivalry is recognized as one of the most intense in the country, and has provided dozens of memories for the loyal fans of both schools. This year's game marks the 100th time the teams will square off against each other and will draw over 17,000 fans. The highest attendance for an Easton/P-Burg game was 23,000 in 1946. ESPN2 will cover the game live on Thanksgiving morning, November 23, 2006 at 9:00am.
