Burrell Field will open at noon on Saturday and the game between Viking and Pirate alumni will commence at 12:30 pm, rain or shine -- but which side will need the crying towels that are among the memorabilia being lined up for this event?
Organizers thank Pirate Alumna Carlene Meitz of Carlene's T-Shirt Corner as well as Bob Vance, also a Pirate alumnus for getting these game towels.
If you're not already in the know, find out more about the game . It also has a PDF that lists a partial roster of the 70 or so players and cheerleaders taking part.
