    Called together by Curly Lambeau and George Calhoun, a group of athletes gathered in the editorial room of the old Green Bay Press-Gazette building to organize a football team and begin the incredible saga of the Green Bay Packers.


    Rejoice my fellow Cheeseheads.. rejoice. Oh happy day.

    AND.... ON THE EXACT SAME DAY June 11, 1919, possibly at the exact same moment Sir. Curly, Sir. George, and a group of Athletes sat in that room organizing a football team that began the incredible saga of The Green Bay Packers....

    ON The Exact same day June 11th 1919, possibly at the exact same moment they were sitting in that room? Sir Barton became the 1st horse to win the Triple Crown.

    There have been 11 Triple Crown Winners since June 11th 1919.

    The Packers Have 12 Championships since June 11th 1919.

    I am glad Big Brown lost last Saturday.

    Packer Championships 12
    Triple Crown Winners 11

    We still have the lead.

    I wanted to re-iterate that Pack93z was the only guy I heard talk about this today. Nice find that should have been on a front page somewhere in the general media.

    Pack 93z-I think you will find that the date of that meeting was August 11, 1919. You are 2 months ahead in celebrating that happy day.
