Saw the FanShot last week of the "JVP" tribute on the baseball team's caps, and I think it is great -- I hope I can pick one up! However, since initials for coaches/owners/etc. and numbers for players on uniforms seem to be pretty standard as tributes, if we believe JoePa was special, I hope the football team will do something special. So I thought I would kick it off, list the obvious, and see if some folks with real imagination have some ideas. Then, maybe someone with better computer skills than mine can put the best ideas into a poll. Initially I thought we could send the results to the athletic department for consideration, but my guess is it would just get lost. A better idea might be for someone on the BSD staff with connections on the team to run it by some of the seniors; if they like it, I think BOB would go along with their suggestion.
So, to get the discussion started, I would suggest the oval lion with the teardrop centered on the back of the helmet; the first time I saw that it really move me. You could put JVP underneath if you thought the meaning would be lost, but I think Joe would like simpler. Alternatively, glasses or black shoes on a hook, or a combination of both, would be my second choice. Thoughts?
