The 25 Greatest Moments in Lambeau Field History

9x12 Hardcover 184pp

Naturally, the Green Bay Packers beat the hated Chicago Bears in the first game ever played at Lambeau Field. How else could the National Football League's most storied stadium possibly begin?
In the half century since Gary Knafelc caught Babe Parilli's fourth-quarter touchdown pass to stun the heavily favored Bears, Lambeau Field has been the scene of countless thrills for fans from coast to coast. Brett Favre to Kittrick Taylor for 35 yards and the first touchdown in a Hall of Fame quarterback's unparalleled career; the Packers and the Washington Redskins trading punches in a record shattering 48-47 Monday Night slugfest; Vince Lombardi being carried off the field after his first heart stopping victory as a head coach; Ron Wolf near tears in the end zone as the Packers return to glory; and of course, Bart Starr plunging over the goal line to end the historic Ice Bowl.

The place they called City Stadium when it was built for the princely sum of $967,000 is celebrating its 50th birthday, and ranking its most golden memories is a daunting task. But Cliff Christl and Dale Hofmann have taken it on and relived them all in The 25 Greatest Moments in Lambeau Field History. Their painstaking research, first hand accounts from players and coaches and a dramatic collection of color and black and white photos put the reader right back in the stands. Nothing has been overlooked in this inside account of the best Lambeau Field has to offer. It's a keepsake that all true Packer fans will want for their libraries.
