Who: North County vs. South County

Where: Countryside

When: 7 tonight

Admission: $5

Skinny: Countryside flag football coach Pierce Brunson founded the nonprofit Pinellas Flag Football Foundation last year and spearheaded the first all-star game tonight. There will be a Player of the Game and MVP award handed out for both teams. Brunson, who funded the entire event, will sell T-shirts and game DVDs to help recoup costs. He hopes to expand the game next year to include Hillsborough.

"I look at it as investment, " Brunson said. "I play in a men's league and just love the sport. This is a way for these girls to get some more exposure and we hope it takes off from this year."
