I know this is only a practice picture - but actual color photos from the 40's are somewhat rare, so I thought this was pretty cool. I'm not suggesting they actually wore yellow socks in games.

Is it me or are those helmets an unusual shape?

That's not an actual Steagles photo from the '40s... see the pick-up near #7

I don't remember if it's from a movie or an amateur game, but I'm 95% sure Paul posted this photo on Uni Watch

EDIT:
it was an ESPN column, link (see point #10)

Thank you for the compliment, I am humbled.

I'm just an obsessive-compulsive football fan who thinks of the GUD as a support group. Thank you for letting me share today!

Very Happy
