American Pie Easter Egg - East Great Falls = East Grand Rapids
The high school that the guys attend is called "East Great Falls", and is located in West Michigan. It is the equivalent of an actual high school called East Grand Rapids, which the writer of the script graduated from.
School colors: EGF is blue and white, EGR is blue/white/gold
Nickname: EGF is the Trailblazers, EGR is the Pioneers
Rival School: In American Pie, it is referred to as "Central". East Grand Rapid's primary rival is another "Central"- Forest Hills Central, which has the exact same colors as depicted in the lacrosse scene towards the end of the movie
Hangout: In EGF, the guys hang out at a joint called "Dog Years". In East Grand Rapids, the popular place to go is a hot dog joint called "Yesterdog".
This egg happens throughout most of the film. First off, the director of "American Pie" grew up in an affluent suburb in Michigan called East Grand Rapids. This town and school hold much inspiration for the school of East Great Falls. For one, most of the students are going to U of M or MSU and Stifler has a cottage on Lake Michigan. Also, both EGR and EGF colors are blue and white. EGF's mascot is the Trailblazers, while EGR's is the Pioneers. EGF's main rival appears to be Central, but take it from me, Grand Rapids Central wins at nothing. I think this is actually about GR Catholic Central, a school which does hold a bitter rivalry with EGR. Furthermore, these are the only two schools that I know of with lacrosse teams.
