-The annual meeting between bitter Sacramento rivals Christian Brothers and Jesuit High School. Refers to all sporting events between teams, but generally refers to the football game, which takes place at Hughes Stadium in late September. It's easily the most important day in the life of any football player and student of either school. Holy Bowl is war; a life or death situation. You beat your opponent on the field or face a year of utter humiliation. Trash-talking is an unspoken demand, and dirty hits a must. Holy Bowl is never clean. Holy Bowl is the clashing of blue and red; a hatred so intense the schools alumni journey back to Sacramento to witness this epic game. It sends chivers down your spine, from the moment the sun sets behind the west bleachers to the last second beneath the lights.
Ricky-Hey John, why can't you go with us to the beach this weekend?
John-I'm going back to Sac for Holy Bowl.
