    That's right, the Three Piece Suit Football game went down Saturday at the Old Fourth Ward Skatepark. This year's game marked its 10th anniversary.

    It's like a regular football game, only participants wear three-piece suits and no helmets. 

    Three Piece Suit Football is dedicated to celebrating the spirit, competition, and camaraderie of football while also honoring the sacrifice and service of veterans and military families by playing a game of tackle football in three-piece suits. Players participate in service projects and hosts numerous other events throughout the year in order to build momentum toward the finely threaded games each year.

    The 2018 game was a fundraisers for Pets for Vets. The nonprofit tries to rescue dogs and place them with veterans in need. All of the funds raised at the game, including the raffle, alcohol sales and donations went to the charity.
