No, not the annual Shrine football game, the really Big Game, the one we're bombing Belgrade over and which the Barbarians are driving hordes of ethnic Albanians out of Kosovo over, in some measure.

Why are the Russians and the Serbs on the East side and NATO the West? Where did that division originate? Is it something new?

The following website has a very clear discussion of the origin of the East-West split (the Great Schism in church history terms). The site was called to attention by MS-NBC, I believe, in connection with the current Balkan war, as a news reference. In looking it over, I happened on the page whose URL is provided below. From there you can navigate the rest of the site which is interesting, informative, and presented in a language I find easy to respect and follow. Let me know what you think.
