everything we've got on the
field.
"Unfortunately, we have
had a few serious injuries like
a broken nose, torn knee lig-
aments, torn finger ligaments
and concussions. Nobody
likes to see that happen."
The YFL season tradition-
ally begins the Sunday after
Labor Day and concludes af-
ter Thanksgiving with the
Matzah Bowl, which was de-
cided in sudden death in
1992.
This year's Matzah Bowl is
scheduled for Nov. 28. The
top four teams will make the
playoffs after the 10-game
regular season, and the play-
off semifinals are slated for
Nov. 21.
A team captained by Chas-
nick won the first Matzah
Bowl in 1991. The score was
3-2 (touchdowns).
"It was brutal that day,"
Chasnick recalled. "It was
cold, a light snow was falling
and the ground was hard as
a rock, but it was a great
game."
Giles' squad was a 6-5 sud-
den-death overtime winner in
the 1992 Matzah Bowl,
played on a cool, overcast day.
Jay Rosett's 23-yard pass to
Giles won the game.
The Matzah Bowl doesn't
conclude the YFL's festivities
for the season. The wrap-up
is at the annual bagels-and-
lox brunch on Super Bowl
morning at Silberman's
home. That's when the

gone on in the cold, snow and
rain.
"That's real football," Chas-
nick said. "When you have to
wear three or four layers of
clothes just to stay dry, all the
better."
The league should have
good weather forecasts be-
cause one of the players is
WDIV-TV meteorologist Paul
Gross. A YFL member since
its inception, Gross says he
happily plays each week be-
cause "there's a great bunch
of guys in the league. I
wouldn"t do it if that wasn't
the case.
"I'm an active person, and
playing football with friends
is a great thing to do on Sun-
day mornings," said Gross,
32. "Groves is sort of like our
field of dreams."
The players scatter in
many directions after the
games, but they have one
thing in common.
"There isn't one guy in the
league who isn't sore Sunday
night and/or Monday morn-
ing," Chasnick said. "We give

Theodore Herzl Award and
the Star of David Awards are
presented, and league mat-
ters are discussed.
The Herzl, selected by the
players, goes to the MVP. All
players receive a Star of
David Award which is per-
sonalized according to their
playing ability and personal-
ity.
Giles and player Bert J.
Green of Farmington Hills
work together on the Star of
David Awards, and Green is
the master of ceremonies dur-
ing the presentations.
The first Herzl Award win-
ner was Chasnick. Last year,
it was Rosett.
Paying for the food at the
brunch is the only mandated
league expense the players
face.
It was at a past league
brunch that the former Sari
Shapiro found out how much
the YFL meant to her future
husband.
"That's where Mitch took
me on our third or fourth date
... the league banquet," Sari
said. "It was held at the Em-
bassy Suites in Southfield
that year. I had fun."
Giles writes an occasional
league memo. In it, he refers
to the players as "horses" be-
cause, as the old sports say-
ing goes, "You've got to have
the horses to win."
In his first memo this sea-
son, Giles reminded players
of a couple of unique league
