Purdue Pete Too Fearsome: Seeking A Kinder, Gentler Image

I saw this story linked over at thewizofodds.com and just had to post it here. It seems that the Boilermakers' unofficial mascot, Purdue Pete, just causes way too many young kids to cry with his freakishly over-sized head and intense stare, so he's getting a makeover to soften his image and make him more approachable.

I will NOT make any jokes about the Boilermakers being plenty soft already!

Anyway, I will keep my eye out for Pete's post-makeover look and report back as soon as there are any public sightings of the new Pete.
