About Jim Rice

It was the 1961 NFL Championship Game that first caught Jim’s attention. A successful football team from small Green Bay, Wisconsin, annihilated the powerful New York Giants 37-0.  From that point on, Jim could never get enough of sports history, especially the winning traditions of the Green Bay Packers and the New York Yankees.  Jim is a former history teacher, coach, and superintendent, who began following his passion for the Packers on a full-time basis after Super Bowl XLV!
