I don't know what the Tiger-Cats have in mind for the Retro Game but this is more of just a friendly suggestion. If it isn't in the cards, that's ok too.
I just think it would be great to bring back Paul Weiler (assuming he's willing and able) to don the Pigskin Pete garb and get back on the sidelines for the game. Even if he shares the duty with the current Pigskin Pete. (who does a great job himself by the way)
I'm obviously missing some sort of inside "joke" or an attempt at one, but attempting to keep the thread on topic, I'd say it's a great idea. To me, Paul was a much more classy Pigskin Pete and he may be able to share some pointers with the new guy.
To be honest I voted #2 but thats not really how I feel. I've seen Paul at several games including the last game. He appears to be very happy visiting when he can but the rigors of doing an entire game being too much is why he retired. If he'd like to go on the field and do a pregame cheer for old times sake that would be great but only if he wants to and only if the new guy goes on with him in a show of support
I reiterate that if this can't be done and isn't in the cards, that's quite alright. This poll or idea wasn't meant to try to force something that wasn't planned for or anything. For all I know, maybe the team already thought of this.
It would be nice if it happened but if it doesn't, that's the way the ball bounces sometimes and maybe down the road sometime it will.
Go Cats !...... and kudos to all those who play the role of Pigskin Pete. (past and present)
