Bethany is outside with Pig Bowl: Guns and Hoses Media Spokesperson, Robyn Sutter, learning all about the 42nd Annual Guns and Hoses event.

Since 1974 the Greater Sacramento Area Firefighters and Law Enforcement Officers have kept the Sacramento tradition of Pig Bowl -- the longest running charity football game in the United States -- alive in hopes of making a difference in the community. This competition not only helps local charities, schools, and non-profit organizations but also unites the civil service employees to come together for the greater good of Sacramento.

This event requires a lot of hard work and dedication from all participants. Players practice 3 to 5 times a week for a month prior to the game and do months of weight training to play one football game on top of working full-time.
