    Watched it back in WI with my Dad on a vintage b&w TV with round picture tube. Frost was on the window panes and our heater was working overtime. I was only 15 back then. Time goes by fast and definitely picks up speed as one gets older. I still remember the thrill of that last drive and the Starr TD. What a game!

    No, the first title game at Dallas was on New Year's Day 1967. The "Ice Bowl" at Lambeau was New Year's Eve 1967/'68.

    The Packers also won their first NFL Championship under Lombardi on New Year's Eve in 1961 37-0 over the Giants. The first title game ever played in Green Bay.

    You are correct. for some reason I was only thinking of the 1967 championship. The game in Dallas was just as heroic with the great play by Dave Robinson at the end.
