Where were you in 1920 okay, I’m sure nowhere to be found. The newest and most enjoyable number one sport, sorry Baseball and Basketball fans, was just starting. Imagine that. That decade is referred to as the ‘Roaring Twenties’ or the “Jazz Age”. By 1932, the first NFL playoff game was played between the Chicago Bears against Portsmouth Spartans. Yep! The very same Chicago Bears Franchise, that will go against the Green Bay Packers for the rights to play in Super-Bowl XLV that’s the 45th super-bowl people.
If you weren’t around for the first ever playoff game, well allow me to ask you where were you December 14, 1941? Okay, okay same answer would be my guess. That game marks the only time in this intense rival that the Packers and Bears met in a playoff game. Final score Chicago 33, Green Bay 14. So now, nearly 70 years later, the Packers have their rematch game to get even. Packers’ fans have the right to be hype for this game. Think if you had to wait 70 years to avenge that beat down you got by the elementary-school bully, that neighborhood kickball game lost, or even showing off your wife or husband to your old high-school mate. I bet you would be pumped too. So the anticipation for this game is understandable.
Start with Green Bay Packers defensive back, Mark Lee, running Walter Payton over the bench in a 1985 game at Lambeau Field. It’s bad when someone tries to take out a guy with a nickname “Sweetness”.
