6th annual Patriot Games announced

A battle is brewing between the Metro Louisville police and fire departments.

Louisville Fire chief Gregory Frederick Wednesday helped to announce the 6th annual Patriot Games.

It's a charitable basketball game between the police and fire departments to commemorate the 9/11 anniversary.

The departments always make a friendly wager on the game.  Last year the police department came out on top.

Police Chief Robert White said, "I only have one request to make -- this year when you give me the chili, could you not put so much extra spice in it."

And Chief Gregory Frederick of Louisville Fire & Rescue said, "It gives us a chance to take a few jabs at our brothers in blue -- the police department."

The game will be held September 13th at Hoops basketball facility at 12101 Sycamore Station Place (off Blankenbaker Parkway).  All proceeds go to the Healing Place.
