Football was so brutal that in 1905, 18 players lost their lives.
Baseball remembers its heroes better. Hollywood, seemingly in cahoots, even does remakes for them.
So it’s really up to us, a few old photographs and some books nobody reads anymore. And, of course, these terrific ribbed crossover crewneck vintage football jerseys. Any contact with them, and heroes will be instantly recalled (a secret process).
William “Pudge” Walter Heffelfi nger. Walter “Eckie” Eckersall. Jim Thorpe. Gus Dorais. Red Grange. Bob Zuppke (“I don’t look for tackles, I listen for them.”) Many more.
