This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to December 7, 1941, and we are in the parking lot of New York Giant’s Polo Ground. We also have a passenger riding shotgun with us. His name is Matthew Algeo. Matthew is an award-winning journalist that has reported from four continents. His stories have appeared on public radio’s All Things Considered, Marketplace, and Morning Edition.
He is the author of five books, and the topic of this episode is Last Team Standing – How the Steelers and the Eagles – The STEAGLES – Saved Pro Football During World War II. This book won the 2006 Nelson Ross Award from the Pro Football Researchers Association, which recognizes his outstanding achievement in pro football research and historiography. In this episode, we get to learn about the creation of the STEAGLES up through the end of the season, and the next episode will be the remainder of the Matthew Algeo interview.
