Welcome to the website named after my first book about the Green Bay Packers and the New York Football Giants - Giant Cheeseheads! This site is about Packer history, and the latest news about my books, projects, and presentations.
Author: Jim Rice
After a career as a history teacher and school superintendent in Wisconsin, I began writing about the Packers and football history in 2011. I share what I've learned in the presentation Why we love the Packers! It features hundreds of photographs of my old football cards, newspapers, and magazines. The program is a visual flashback through Packer history, with fans watching for their favorites players and special moments!

* THIS DAY IN PACKER HISTORY!
12/1/1996 On the way to their first Super Bowl since 1968, the Packers defeat the Bears 28-17 at Lambeau. A punt return for a touchdown by Desmond Howard put Green Bay ahead to stay. Antonio Freeman also starred catching 10 passes from Brett Favre (19-27-231-1) for 156 yards. This was Green Bay's sixth straight victory over Chicago. You have to go back to 1928-1930 to find a longer winning streak!
