About Jim Rice

It was the 1961 NFL Championship Game that first caught Jim Rice’s attention. A successful football team from small Green Bay, Wisconsin annihilated the powerful team from New York, the Giants, 37-0.  From that point on, sports history, especially the Packers and Yankees, were never very far away.
