That’s a shot of 59-year-old Florida man Charles Chulada, who tried out for the Saskatchewan Roughriders Sunday … wearing a T-shirt and jeans. Some background from the Daytona Beach News Journal, via Andrew Bucholtz of The 55-Yard Line:

When the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team scheduled an open tryout Sunday at Municipal Stadium, the coaches really meant it was open to anyone.

Charles Chulada, 59, was living proof.

While the other 20-something and a few 30-something players had their Under Armour, Nike and Adidas gear on, Chulada worked out in blue jeans, a 16-year-old T-shirt and some cleats he had from playing for a semipro team several years ago.

“I knew I could do it,” Chulada said after running a couple of 40-yard dashes. “I want to put on a helmet and run through a brick wall to show them I can do it.”

Consider the age and throw in the denim and what do you have? Brett Favre in less than two decades

Either that or “Blue” from Old School…
