Program Description

Event Details

Join author Joe Ziemba as he discusses his new book “Bears vs. Cardinals: The NFL’s Oldest Rivalry.” The program will discuss recently released documents from one of the original owners of the Chicago Bears and the impact of those records on understanding the early history of the National Football League. Be prepared for a humorous look at the wacky days of professional football, focusing on the NFL’s two oldest franchises, the Chicago Bears and the Chicago (now Arizona) Cardinals. Relive the rowdy, formative years of professional football through audience interaction, rare archival photos, and surprising insight into legendary historical figures such as Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, George Halas and Al Capone. All are part of the curious (and often comical) history of pro football!
