This was a big year for Football Archaeology since it did not exist until April, at least not under this name and format. Previously, I had a site called Fields of Friendly Strife, which I created to support my first book of the same name. However, as that site began covering football history in general, I decided to rebrand and reorient my efforts.
Fields of Friendly Strife contained long-form articles that took five to ten minutes to read. That content style still appears on Football Archaeology -see the Articles tab on the home page- but football history includes lots of bite-sized nuggets that require only a minute to highlight, so Today's Tidbit became a thing.
Now that we have made it to the end of the first calendar year of Football Archaeology, here are eleven of my favorite Tidbits from 2022. Feel free to gift one or all of them to your deserving friends and relatives.

And for those Canadian readers that prefer an even dozen, here's another Tidbit from 2022.
Hopefully, you'll have the chance to review a few, and one will put a smile on your face.
Here's to a wonderful holiday season!
