Packers on the South Side
Here's a snapshot of NFL football at Chicago's old Comiskey Park. Chicago Cardinals receiver Mal Kutner leaps into the air to snatch a pass under the goal post in first quarter of a game with the Green Bay Packers on November 27, 1949. The ball slipped out of his grasp momentarily but he grabbed again and held on for a touchdown. The pass was thrown by Jim Hardy in a game the Cardinals won 41-21. Old Comiskey Park, which was home to the White Sox from 1910 to 1990, was also the Cardinals' longtime home. The "Big Red" played there from 1922-1925 and from 1929-1958.
