This week’s Monday Night Football match-up features my Green Bay Packers hosting the Kansas City Chiefs at beautiful Lambeau Field.
This is a rematch of the first Super Bowl (actually called the NFL-AFL Championship) played in the LA Coliseum in January of 1967. I was nine and even at that point a Packer fan for life. There were 30,000 empty seats and neither network (the game was televised by both NBC and CBS) preserved a recording of the game. An old tape copy from an individual was recently restored. This is a far cry from the hype that surrounds the Super Bowl today.
The Packers had 10 future Hall of Famers plus Coach Lombardi. The Packers won 35-10. let’s hope for a similar result this time around as well.
