Eagles Cowboys Oct 2022

SBC Managing Director John Foley, and RF Connect (and SBC Board Member) Josh Gerst, have had a (mostly) friendly rivalry going back years.

This Sunday, Oct 16th at 8:20p ET, The Birds and the Boys meet
to battle for first place in the
NFL's hottest division, the NFC East.

Says Foley - "The Cowgirls are going to find out they've been beating second-tier teams - they are about to be served a dose of reality at the Linc this Sunday".

Says Gerst - "This is Dallas' year... our D is devastating, and they can't stop our running game."

The Stakes: Gerst has selected the American Red Cross Disaster Relief as his charity,
Foley has selected the Florida Disaster Fund
LOSER will make a hefty donation to the WINNER's charity.

Don't wait for the outcome!

John and Josh say: "We invite everyone to talk trash in the LinkedIn comment section, and join us in supporting both of these great charities to help the folks in Florida come back from Hurricane Ian."
