  10. I thought the exact same thing, and had the same trouble finding a good pic. Also, I went to my first Bears game that season, against the Eagles. Definitely a different experience. Ugh, don't remind me of that travesty At the time, Memorial Stadium was actually bigger that Soldier field. Today, Soldier Field is only slightly bigger than Memorial Stadium. Both of them around 60,000.
  11. I thought the exact same thing, and had the same trouble finding a good pic. Also, I went to my first Bears game that season, against the Eagles. Definitely a different experience. Patriots won that game 33-30. The patriot came back from 21 points down in the third quarter.

  19. Some Championship Stats: In the 1990s, There were three sports championships that feature Dallas vs. Buffalo (Super Bowl XXVII, Super Bowl XXVIII, and the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals). The 2000 Stanley Cup Finals was the first Stanley Cup that featured two teams that played in at least one other city (Minnesota North Stars/Dallas Stars vs. Kansas City Scouts/Colorado Rockies/New Jersey Devils). The Minnesota North Stars/Dallas Stars are also the only teams to played in the Stanley Cup Finals in two different cities (Minnesota in 1981 and 1991 and Dallas in 1999 and 2000). The 2001 Stanley Cup Finals was between Denver's current Ice Hockey team and Denver's old Ice Hockey Team. (Kansas City Scouts/Colorado Rockies/New Jersey Devils vs the Quebec Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche). There has been two sports championships that were Minnesota vs. Pittsburgh (Super Bowl IX and the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals). The Pirates and Senators/Twins played in the 1925 World Series. Joe Nieuwendyk has won the Stanley Cup three times, on three different teams, in three different decades (Flames in 1989, Stars in 1999, and the Devils in 2003). From 1972 to 1976, all of the Oakland Sports teams won at least one championship (Athletics in 1972, 1973, 1974, Warriors in 1975, and the Raiders in 1976). In the the last championship year, the Seals moved to Cleveland. Of all the original American Football teams, the Chiefs are the only team that won both an AFL title and the Super Bowl not in the same season. Of the four teams to join NHL in 1979, The Oilers were the only team that did not win a WHA title. The Jets won it three times, The Nordiques won it once, and the Whalers won it once. When the teams came to the NHL, the Oilers won the Stanley Cup five times before any of the others teams. The jets won the most titles in the WHA, there are the only team of the four to not have on the Stanley Cup yet. The Athletics and Giants have played in the World Series on both the east and west coast. 1911 and 1913 in New York and Philadelphia and 1989 in Oakland and San Francisco. Of all the stadiums that hosted the Super Bowl, The Rose Bowl is the only stadium that never housed an NFL team. Three has been three championships between Detroit and Pittsburgh (1909 World Series, 2008 Stanley Cup Finals, and the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals). The Penguins have won the Stanley Cup three times, but never on their home ice (Minnesota in 1991, Chicago in 1992, and Detroit in 2009). When they lost in 2008, The Red Wings won it on their home ice. Jerry Sloan played for the Chicago Bulls, was both a head and assistant coach for the Bulls, and as coach of the Jazz, lost in two NBA Finals against the Bulls.
  20. Both the Bears and Packers had a championship season which they only lost one game. The Packers in 1962 and the Bears in 1985. Also the Raiders and 49ers also had a Championship season with only one loss. The Raiders in 1976 and the 49ers in 1984.
  21. Does that count the Ravens, who apparently didn't play in Cleveland? Or the Hornets, who were just inactive for a while and didn't actually move to New Orleans? I was wondering that myself. Officially, it should not. I guess. Right now it's 41 but maybe a few more years from now it can be 35. Or zero. Yeah who the heck knows where any team played anymore now that they can just make up history? He called the 1983 and 1993 series on radio. 2008 would be the only win he called. Interestingly, the rule was changed to allow local radio announcers to broadcast WS games was made in 1981 after Phillies fans flooded the commissioner's office with complaints over not being able to hear Kalas in '80. That's what I was trying to explain.
