    Interesting History....

    This was on the Packers.com website. It was posted by their in-house historian Lee Remmel. Not posting this for anyother reason but I think its a neat piece of history that I didn't know about. Is anyone old enough to remember this?


    Lee: The Packers played exhibition games in Minneapolis almost every year in the '40s and '50s. Where were the games played prior to 1956 when Metropolitan Stadium opened? Thank you. - Jim (Mound, MN)

    Lee Remmel: Jim, the Packers played eight preseason games in the Twin Cities area during a 12-year span (1948, 1951-54 and 1957-58-59-60) at two sites prior to the Vikings entering the NFL in 1961: Parade Stadium in Minneapolis and St. Paul Central Stadium.
