I forgot to add the game tomorrow evening between the LGHS Cats and the Saratoga High School Falcons at Saratoga! Game starts at 7:30 p.m. Go Cats! Go Falcons! Who do you think will win this match? Does this rumored rivalry exist between both schools?

Oh, there's also the large Veterans' Day Parade in downtown San Jose on Sunday at 11 a.m. I'll be previewing this event tomorrow on Los Gatos Patch. Hope everyone has a nice, relaxing weekend!
