Have you ever heard of the Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Yankees or the Cincinnati Reds? They're baseball teams, right? Did you also know they were names of NFL teams in the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's? It's a little known fact that the NFL has one of the richest histories among major league sports. While only in its infancy, the league endured the Great Depression, other rival leagues (no, not the USFL) and World War II. In 1943, the Chicago Cardinals, now in Arizona, and the Pittsburgh Steelers formed one football team called Card-Pitt due to the need for abled body men overseas.
Look for a book coming soon which documents all this and more.
