Giant Cheeseheads  
   
 

Welcome to a site named after book #1 about the Packers and the New York Football Giants  - Giant Cheeseheads!  Here you will find 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 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 favorites players and special moments as we go from Lambeau to McCarthy at a fairly brisk pace.

The Packers' Century App will celebrate Green Bay's 100th anniversary in 2019.  It will feature a summary of every game the Packers have ever played, and it will be filled with stories from Packer-backers worldwide beginning with members of the Green Bay Packer FAN Hall of Fame. Those who support project may have their favorite memories included as well.

Seven members of the FAN Hall of Fame are already involved with the project. You can meet them, and read a few of their Packer stories at: www.gofundme.com/2p63dyc
