Giant Cheeseheads  
About author & speaker Jim Rice..... 

After a career as a history teacher and school superintendent, I began writing about Green Bay Packer history in 2011.  I have been sharing what I've learned through Why we love the Packers! which features a look back at Packer history through hundreds of photos of my old football cards, newspapers, and magazines. We go from Lambeau to McCarthy at a fairly brisk pace!

                      The Packers' Century App  
             All the Games!   All the Stories!

- Green Bay's 100th season is in 2018.

- The 100th anniversary of the team's founding is August 11, 2019.

- Be part of a once in a lifetime project that chronicles every Packer game ever played.  It will also be a treasury of Packer stories from the franchise's very beginning until today. 

- Rather than publishing another book, The Packers' Century will be an app to enable Packer fans to connect worldwide about specific games and stories. 

- The 1,374+ game summaries will provide for hours of interesting reading.  Legendary stories from fans, however, will make this a one of a kind Packer publication.  Example: Green Bay Press-Gazette, October 22, 1944.

The "most disappointed fan was an unfortunate Green Bay man, who started out in his car for Milwaukee Sunday morning to see the game.  He got as far as Cedarburg, had a flat tire there, and couldn't find a garage open to have it fixed.  He repaired the tire with borrowed equiptment and got to West Allis (where the stadium was) just in time to turn around and start home."

- Members of the Packer FAN Hall of Fame are part of the project.  Their amazing stories will be a special highlight of the project. The most recent inductee, Frank Lamping, is part of this prestigious group.  

- Developing an app for all the games and stories will be costly, but the infinite number of connections it will bring about among fans and friends will make it priceless.

- Cost Estimate for App >  $10,000 +
- Raised so far >  $5,400 +

To meet the Fan Hall of Famers who are involved in the project, and how your favorite Packer memory can become part of this 100-year old story, please go to
