I love history. And I love football.
That’s what led me to put the two together in this recent New York Times op-ed about the violence and scandals that threatened American football back in 1905.
In it I discuss how it took the hands-on involvement of President Theodore Roosevelt to help keep football from being banned out of existence.
As you watch the NFL Playoffs, and the BCS National Championship, take a look back at football when helmets were few and far between.
(And go J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets!!!)
