I laughed out loud reading this. The refs were so cold that before the game they went to an Army Navy store and bought mittens, panty-hose and garbage bags. They cut holes in the plastic bags and put them over their heads and taped them around their waists.

What I don't understand is why the great Jerry Kramer who made the game winning block allowing Bart Starr to get in the end zone is still not a Hall of Famer.

The Packer were famously known for their power sweep, and who lead that power sweep?? Jerry Kramer and Fuzzy Thurston.

Whether Kramer deserves to be in the HOF or not i wont partake but it is soon to be a moot point because Kramer is on the Senior Committee nominees list this year and they ALWAYS get in...
