Giant Cheeseheads  
Meet Author & Speaker Jim Rice..... 
This website is named after my first book - GIANT CHEESEHEADS! - which presents the history between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants.  Below you'll find books and programs about Packer history and the latest news about my books, projects, and presentations. 
We we love the Packers!  by Jim Rice     
After a career as a history teacher and school superintendent, 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.  You can join 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 the more traditional route, the plan for The Packers' Century is the development of an app to enable Packer fans to connect worldwide about specific games and stories.

The 1,374 + game summaries will provide for hours of interesting reading, but classic stories from fans makes the reading even more compelling.  Currently, six members of the Packer FAN Hall of Fame are involved in the project, and their stories will get things started.  The most recent inductee, Frank Lamping, is part of this prestigious group.  

A well designed app for all the games and stories will be costly. The infinite number of connections, however, makes it worth it! 
Cost:  $10,000 + by most estimates
So far, I have raised $4,500.
