Giant Cheeseheads  
   
 
Welcome to a site named after the book GIANT CHEESEHEADS! which presents the history between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Football Giants. This site focuses on Packer history, and the latest news about my books, projects, and presentations. 
            
About the Author: Jim Rice   
After a career as a history teacher and school superintendent in Wisconsin, I began writing about Green Bay Packer history in 2011.  I have been sharing what I've learned through Why we love the Packers! which features a look back at Packer history through hundreds of photos of my old football cards, newspapers, and magazines. Fans watch for their favorite players and  moments as we go from Lambeau to McCarthy at a fairly brisk pace.

                 The Packers' Century App!
                     All the games & All the Stories
                                          

Become part of history with this a once in a lifetime celebration of the Packers' 100th anniversary.  As the team prepares for its 99th season, plans are in full swing here for the 100th anniversary on August 11, 2019.  You can become part of this historic moment with the launch of The Packers' Century App that will feature all the games and all the stories that make Green Bay Packer history so compelling. 

While publishing another book is a more traditional route, the plan for The Packers' Century is the development of an "app" to enable Packer fans to connect worldwide. Not only will all 1,376 game summaries provide hours of enjoyable reading and energetic discussions, but classic stories from fans will make the reading even more memorable. Currently, five members of the Packer FAN Hall of Fame are involved in the project, and their stories are getting things started. The most recent inductee, Frank Lamping, will also be involved.

Developing an "app" to accommodate all the great games and stories will be expensive. I have raised $1,000.00 so far. For more details about the project, and how your favorite Packer story can be included, please go to gofundme.com/2p63dyc.
