In 2019, the National Football League (NFL) will mark its 100th season. Join us to learn more about the Bears and the Cardinals, the two oldest teams in the league who were both originally from the Chicago area! We will go back to a time when individuals played with little equipment protection, gangsters interrupted games, and players worked second jobs during the professional football season. Additionally, we'll share recently discovered details on the poor financial status of the Chicago Bears in the 1920s and 30s and how the owner of the rival Cardinals loaned Bears' owner George Halas the funding to keep his team afloat.
