Sunday History Tidbits

Here are a few things to get you through your first of two consecutive Sundays with no Packers football. Above is a great postcard photo of the 1960 Western Division champions, with a photo legend and 1961 Packers schedule on the back (below)

Nearing the end of our Packers of the Past series today, we are introduced to a real “boob” in Green Bay’s football history. No kidding.

We can’t imagine anything more irrelevant in mid-September than major league baseball, but on Sunday we’ll be attending the Chicago Cubs-Pittsburgh Pirates game at Wrigley Field. It’s a family venture, and it doesn’t conflict with the Packers, so why not? So, we thought we’d dig out a photo from the 1960’s of a Green Bay-Chicago game at the same venue. The Bears played there from 1921 to 1970. Have a good Sunday!
