October In 1935 Milwaukee... 

1935 Green Bay Packers take on the Chicago Cardinals in Milwaukee.

Here's a cool picture (not sure where it's from, had it saved for a while) from 1935 featuring the Green Bay Packers playing the Chicago Cardinals. Well, it's cool because according to Packers Uniforms this was the first year the Packers broke away from wearing the Blue N Gold and went to the color scheme of green. The experiment lasted two years as the Packers went back to the Curly Lambeau Classic Blue N Gold uniforms.

The other interesting tidbit about this picture, besides the Cardinals in Red and Light Blue, is that although the Packers finished 8-4 that year, the Cardinals beat them in Green Bay 7-6, in Milwaukee 3-0, and in Chicago 9-7. A trifecta beatdown, and although the background in the picture looks like September in Green Bay, with golden shoulders on the uniforms a mid-season change, it's likely to be the October game in Milwaukee rather than the November one in Chicago.

Hey wait... that kind of sucks, losing 3 times to the Cardinals. So why mention it? It has to with lessons learned, knowledge gained, revenge satisfied. In the following 1936 season, the Packers won the NFL Championship with a 10-1-1 record, at the time their 4th over-all, and yeah, they beat the Cardinals twice, tied them (the infamous 0-0 game) on the last game of the year. So I don't know, the chance to rebound after a near-miss successful year, it's something to look forward too... I guess. It's been done many times since the Packers did it in the 1930's. While heading into the off-season, at least we fans have that much going for us.

Presenting The "Ice Bowl" 

The legendary Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys "Ice Bowl", at the time a NFL Championship game, is something that I thought that always summed up everything that Packers football and Wisconsin weather can achieve in bone-chilling weather, a Packers win. This game is one of the NFL's greatest ever, so when I ended up gathering some newly found pictures on the internet to go with those found long ago, it was time to bring them to Packer Palace for display. So for your viewing pleasure, click on the above pic for the 4 different angled shots of the play where Bart Starr takes it upon himself and QB sneaked forever his way into Packers history, and 1 great picture of the fans tearing down the goalposts after the game. So Sweet!

A Photographer Like Me... 

So this is one of my favorite Christmas Presents this year.  A previously framed photo from an Appleby's in Milwaukee (Thanks Bro') that shows what I believe to be is Mike McCoy (on the left) with Willie Buchanon (with ball) returning an interception 77 yards for a touchdown back in 1978.  If I was a photographer standing at the goal-line watching the game, I can't imagine myself doing anything else but exactly what this young man was doing.  Arms straight up in the air while cheering for the Packers.  Taking a picture, or cheering for the Pack?  Hmmmmmmm, like I said, he's A Photographer Like Me...

Remembering Don Hutson...

Here's an old story by Jim Culberson published back in 1945 by the Portsmouth N.H. Herald the friday before Don Hutson and the Green Bay Packers came to Boston to play the Yanks.  Yes, you read that right, the Green Bay Packers ended up beating the Boston Yanks the following Sunday 28-0.

Don Hutson lead the Packers in scoring and TD's for 11 straight seasons from 1935-1945, he lead the NFL in scoring 5 straight years from 1940-44, and ended up with 105 career TD's for the Green Bay Packers.

Remembering George... 

George W. Calhoun, a man that we here at Packer Palace are trying to model our lives on, the first one to really push the idea of Green Bay Packer Football and heavy drinking.  Here's one for you George!!!  May your name always be remembered in the annals of Packer lore.
  Cal went on the road with the Packers as traveling secretary and publicity man.  He treated the big city sports editors just like he did the boys in John Coppes saloon.  And they ate it up. First thing he'd do when he arrived in town was order multiple cases of beer and cakes of ice and fill his bathtub with both.  Then he'd get on the phone, to Red Smith at the Herald-Tribune, Art Daley at the New York Times.  "The Packers are in town: the beer's in the tub; come on over."

Cal's hotel room would be the mecca for all the famous sports figures while the Packers were in town.  And next day the New York Times would carry a full column by Daley on "The Big Bay Blues, The Professional Lindbergh Team With the College Spirit, The Davids of the Sports World," all spoon-fed to the writer by Cal.  Other pro teams were lucky in those days to get a paragraph in the Times when they came to town.

from the obituary for George W. Calhoun by John Torinus of the Appleton Post-Crescent.

Hank And Herb... 

From the Packers.Com website, "Letters To Lee Remmel" article.

Lee:  I have been reading your comments for almost sixty years and I am convinced that nobody in any professional sport knows more about his/her team than you!  What is your favorite Hank Gremminger story?  I am a Green Bay native but my wife and I now live in a house built by Hank.  Also, Hank was our County Commissioner when he died a few years ago. - John (Weatherford, TX)

This isn't the actual photo of Hank scoring his TD against the Vikings, but both he and Herb Adderly will be forever remembered here at Packer Palace for snatching victory away from Minnesota Vikings.
   LR:  John, my favorite story about Hank Gremminger involves the most productive play of his 10-year Green Bay career.  The circumstances were:  The Packers, playing the Vikings at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minn., on October 13, 1963, held a tenuous 30-28 lead with 2 minutes remaining in the game.  But the Vikings were then at the Green Bay 3-yard line and lining up for a "gimmee" -- and presumably game-winning -- field goal by Fred Cox.  Fortuitously, Packers cornerback Herb Adderley swept through to block the kick and Hank alertly pounced upon the loose football and raced 60 yards to a decisive touchdown -- the only touchdown, incidentally, of his NFL career.  Jerry Kramer kicked the extra point and the Packers prevailed, 37-28. 

Flog Me Again

We would be amiss if we didn't include a picture of Herb, check out the Sports Attic for more.
