Electric Gridiron Classics-The Ice Bowl

We all know about the famous Ice Bowl, but for those who are under 6 years old, here is a quick summary.

The 1967 National Football League Championship Game between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys was the 35th championship game in NFL history. Popularly known as the Ice Bowl, it is widely considered one of the greatest games in NFL history, due to the extremely hostile conditions it was played in, the importance of the game and of the rivalry between the two teams, and the dramatic conclusion.

In the remodeled Packers Hall of Fame--the have life-sized statues of the lineup for the famous QB sneak in the Ice Bowl.... one of the things that stikes me when I see that is how SMALL all of the players were-including both offensive and defensive linemen.
While they were behemoths in their day--to a man, they'd be very undersized in today's NFL....that said--it's a great exhibit and well worth the journey to visit....
