Today's Tidbit... The Fourth Factoid Feast ($)
As discussed in the First Factoid Feast, Second Factoid Feast, and Third Factoid Feast, my searches through football history sometimes take me to topics too important to ignore but too minor to Tidbit. Such nuggets are factoids, three of which are shared with you today.
More Ugly Uniforms of the 1930s

I continue to hold that position and will do so until my last breath, but I came across a hockey uniform recently that shows football was not he lone participant in the 1930s ugly uniform derby.
