Just Because: Don Hutson tells us about coach Curly Lambeau
If you ever wondered the demeanor of Packers legendary coach Curly Lambeau, one of his former players had some insight.
I came across an interesting story by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Tuesday, talking about former Packers team president Robert Parins and how he's been passionately following the team since Curly Lambeau was coaching the franchise to three-straight NFL championships from 1929-31.
Parins is 95 years old, but still, he attends just about every home game, and when the Packers are on the road, he and his wife of 72 years sit together and consume it on TV together.
Read the story, because it's an interesting look at a man who loved his team as a youth, who became president of said team (from 1982-89), and who continued to love his team after he left the organization.
But that story got me thinking about Lambeau, and what he must have been like to play for during those 29 years he coached the Packers and led the organization to a total of six league titles.
Luckily, the late Don Hutson -- who was an offensive end for the Packers from 1935-45 and was an eight-time All-Pro before he made the Hall of Fame in the first class of 1963 --tells us a little about it.
