TPSF I — Feb 1, 2009 Video Highlights: CLICK HERE

TPSF I

On February 1st, 2009, Piedmont Park proudly hosted perhaps the most epic event in Atlanta’s history. Inspired by Donald Hatcher’s fashionable choice in mens wear, a group of friends got together and did what some thought was impossible: they played football while wearing three-piece suits.

These extreme athletes came together for one afternoon of personal pain and sacrifice to drink beer and light each other up, in the hopes of starting a revolution… and getting drunk. They did not let the lack of port-o-potties or medical personnel stop them in their quest. They did not let the sight of Terrance the Pain Train deter them, either. They were individuals who for one afternoon put aside their statistics homework and showed up to live the dream.

Some say a second game of this magnitude could rip open the universe. Some say it could destroy the space time continuum. Some say, “See you next year, bitches.” It is to those glorious idiots who said the latter that this game was dedicated. May you recover swiftly from your injuries and get your minds right for the next time. Also, bring beer.

TPSF II — Feb 7, 2010

TPSF II group copyThe highly anticipated second installment of TPSF brought with it no lack of drama in a hard-hitting, thrilling game. It was this sequel that set the tone for the future theme of TPSF and the camaraderie that has been a fundamental component ever since. Waiting all year to play this game for a second time, these brave souls sought to recapture the magic of Piedmont Park from the prior year. However, this time, with more players in tow and a growing crowd, TPSF was quickly a much larger presence than any expected.

With the game starting in heated fashion, players from both teams of TPSF came together as the forces from above (read: Piedmont Parks Security) tried to put a halt on the game. Because of our large and finely-threaded presence, TPSF was forced to relocate mid-game despite the long-winded diatribe by Busby detailing the unimportant and clear abundance of grass at the park and paying particular emphasis to its propensity to regenerate quickly. The “man” wasn’t having it, and as such, TPSF and all its fans moved the game to Grant Park. It was here the epic battle, which started in Piedmont Park, was finished. Playing this game on the coldest TPSF to date saw numerous thrills and big plays as Dre “Tyson 50” West set the tone for the legends of the tailored gridiron by shedding his dapper attire and lighting the field up for numerous touchdowns and capturing the TPSF II MVP title!

TPSF III — Feb 6, 2011

The third edition of TPSF brought with it the return of Terrence T-Wiggles” Wiggins and numerous new characters as well. New traditions were forged, including introductions” the night before and a theme song to set the tone for the I entire event. While the game was close during the first half, the likes of Denote and Joff proved to be too much for the other team as Austin and his crew of teammates ran away with the championship.

It was the closest game  in TPSF history (to date; see TPSF VI recap below), with Cameron’s crew winning by a touchdown. The victors rode the wave of TWiggs, Denote, and Hunter on to the win. With the introduction of the instantly coveted Champions Cup, the raising of over $4oo for the Wounded Warrior Project, and the attendance of nearly a hundred fans, TPSF was indeed taken to the next level at the 2o12 game.

This time the players wore colored headbands to better differentiate the teams for the sizable crowd. Blue vs. Red. In what may have been the most lopsided victory in TPSF history, the Blue team dug in, played team football, and came away with a 42-16 win. Their rookie player, Tim Jamison played hard on both sides of the ball coming up with 2 touchdown receptions and several big stops on defense. Tim’s performance won him , while Desi laid it all on the line to stop TWiggs, winning him the Got Lit Up trophy along the way. Overall, it was a successful afternoon of exciting football with Matador out serving free tacos, halftime entertainment, and good weather.
