Facts About Pro Football (20 pics) (http://seriouslyforreal.com/more/facts-about-pro-football-20-pics/)

I'm not sure of the accuracy of these, as I have already found one wrong one with the name "Texans". There have been more than four teams that have used the name, and not all have been hockey teams (according to Wiki, there have been 7 teams including our current Houston team).

But some of these are fun (just a few for the thread, the rest are at the above link):

Any profit made by the league is distributed among the 32 teams, who then pay taxes on that income. So, not really tax-exempt. Also, I'm fairly certain Teddy didn't invent the forward pass.

The KC Chiefs used to be the Texans, so we're actually the 5th team. :worldpeace:

Don't know how true this is, but I read somewhere in high school that Cumberland College kept kicking off to Georgia Tech, even when Georgia Tech scored; so really only 1 team had the ball the entire game. If that's true, then the score is misleading.

BTW, James Naismith is from Almonte; 20 minutes from Smiths Falls ;)

It's called Shrovetide. I posted a thread about it a while back. It's still played to this day. People not from there can play, but they just aren't allowed to score.

I believe there was also a WFL team called the Houston Texans in the 70s.
