The Pigskin Pete “thoughts” thread inspired me to comment on a few things missing from game day at THF that I personally feel add a lot to the overall vibe and experience that likely aren’t huge undertakings (or expensive, at all) for the team to put together:
Marching Band. A few years ago they brought in a band that sometimes played in between plays. I dont recall them being at every game but when they were there my brother and I really enjoyed it. A nice change from always having music and added a college-football-type exciting vibe. Not sure if this was a community band or something the Ticats had put together but I would be a BIG proponent of having the band back for every game.
End zone logo paint. For the life of me I cannot figure out why our giant, empty, green end zones are lacking a Ticats logo or a big HAMILTON painted on. I could be wrong but I don’t think this is a cost thing, I can’t see how it could be too expensive to paint and maintain something in there. The Riders, Bombers, and Eskimos do this well. Am I missing something here?
Tiger Roar! Again, a couple years back they had a tiger roar that played in between plays/after a 1st down and unless I am just completely missing it, they stopped doing it. To be fair, it actually wasn’t a tiger roar. We used to laugh because I think the audio they chose was more of a mountain lion or a jaguar type thing. Get the right audio and bring back the tiger roar! Penn State does this well.
Discuss! What else do you want to see?
