Things We Love: NFL Championship Game December 9, 1934
We tend to think we are completely different than people used to be, that the world is completely different. it's one of the reason I love historical sports footage. There's always an intriguing juxtaposition between a foreign, long since past era, and people simply doing many of the same things we do today. This clip has no sound (and the Bears lost), but I think it's fascinating. It's not accidental that we still tell many of the same stories from past decades, centuries, milenia. We haven't really changed all that much since time began, yet change is there nonetheless.
