When Football Was Football: History of the Cardinals @ Saguaro Room (125

The team now known as the Arizona Cardinals played a major role in the formation of the National Football League in the 1920’s as the Chicago Cardinals. This interactive program will not only discuss the history of the team and the influence of well-known historical figures such as Al Capone, Jim Thorpe, and George Halas, participants will also be able to handle a “watermelon” football, and even have the chance to win really dreadful prizes in an on-going football history quiz!
