FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK!!! Packers. Green Bay. The Green Bay Packers. No matter how it’s said, one can’t say Green Bay without thinking of the Packers or say Packers without thinking about Green Bay, the greatest little city in all of professional sports. But when and how did this legend in pro sports begin? That question is answered in the first detailed history of the Green Bay Packers. Larry Names tells the myths that color Packer history. Then he strips away the legends and finds the truth behind the tales. Did Curly Lambeau really start the Packers? What was George Whitney Calhoun’s role in Packer history? How did George Halas help save the Packers from extinction? Were the early executives of the Packers anti-Semitic? How did Gerald Clifford create the most unique franchise in all of professional sports? Then there was the team, the players. How did the coach and general manager of a small town team in the frigid north entice so many stars to play professional football for him for less money than they could get in bigger cities? Jug Earpe, Charley Mathys, Cub Buck, Vern Lewellen, Red Dunn, Lavvie Dilweg, Johnny Blood, Cal Hubbard, Mike Michalske, and more. Hall-of-Famers all. The Green Bay Packers. The team and franchise too tough to die.
