The Easton-P’burg rivalry has always been fierce. But pinnapping? The sad story of Cecil the pig.
OK, first thing is first: do NOT kidnap a pig. Do NOT paint it in your school colors. And do NOT leave it on your rival’s campus as a prank.
This can not to be one of the proudest moments of the Easton-Phillipsburg rivalry. Fifty years ago this week, The Express followed the story of Cecil the pig, who a few weeks earlier was stolen from a farm, painted in Easton red and white colors and abandoned at Phillispburg High School around the schools annual Thanksgiving football game. Cecil was taken in by agricultural students from P’burg and brought up for several weeks before… well, use discretion if farming operations make you disgusted.
