PHOTOS: Remember, Wrigley Field was NFL venue back in the day

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

The NFL season is now underway, so let's use that as an excuse for a stroll down memory lane. Specifically, Cubs home Wrigley Field was once home to the Chicago Bears. Actually for a while, as the Bears called Wrigley home from 1921 to 1970.

Here are some pictures of the old ballpark, back when it was a multi-purpose stadium.
