    If I may interject a note, "moleskin football pants" are not made out of moles. Moleskin is a heavy cotton fabric. Before google, we were all just wandering in the darkness. ;)

    Great article. With the work of Lee Remmel and now Cliff Christl, and others like Denis Gullickson in this article, it's been great to see the history and tradition of the Packers coming back into focus. I had no idea who Fred Hulbert was but am impressed that he grew his hair out on top to cushion the blows that he took to the head. If only he would have crafted a handlebar mustachio to cut the wind, giving him extra speed.

    Excellent piece, thanks for posting it. Especially this: " One could debate how much those finer points of the game of football have changed since Green Bay saw its first game on September 21, 1895. The simple fact is that, 120 years later, the game is still won and lost “in the trenches” — no matter how much fancy stuff is hung up around the edges."
