Pretty common back then to name football teams after the baseball team in the same stadium. I think there was a Yankees football at some point, wasn't there?
there were actually multiple Yankees football teams

The first one was in the 1920s NFL and had Red Grange. The second was in the AAFC of the late '40s and featured Tom Landry and Arnie Weinmeister. The last one was the NY Yanks, which had an odd history. They had been the Boston Yanks (which is very odd itself), moved to NY and became the Bulldogs in 1949, then the NY Yanks in 1950-51, then moved to Dallas as the Dallas Texans in 1952, and then folded.
Unbelievable...

The thought of a World War is terrifying.

What those of the greatest generation did and how they handled it is incredible.

Chris, if there is ever another one, it will bring us to the end of days, IMO. Horrific. My dad who was born in 1936 used to tell me about these gov't food ration stamps people needed to buy meat, etc. during WW2.
There are some people on here
