Uncle Frank – The Football Star
The year: 1922. The score: 13-13, with only fifteen seconds to go in the fourth quarter of the NFL’s first championship game, between the Chicago Bears and the Canton Bulldogs. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, Uncle Frank streaked across the field like a souped-up Model T, carrying the ball 52 yards across the goal line and scoring the game-winning touchdown for Canton in an unforgettable scoring “drive.”
During the post-game celebration after the game, Uncle Frank declared that all of his teammates were responsible for the win – and gifted them all with mint condition 1925 Buick touring cars. Uncle Frank went on to become NFL commissioner and create many innovations in the sport – including the first trade!
