December 9, 1934
For the second consecutive season, the Giants met the Chicago Bears in the NFL Championship game. The Bears had won the year before at Wrigley Field, 2321. This time, however, the scene shifted to Gotham, as the Giants hosted unbeaten Chicago on an icy day at the Polo Grounds. Things did not get off to a great start, as the Bears took a 10-3 lead into the halftime locker room. During intermission, the Giants made an infamous change in footwear, opting for sneakers in favor of cleats to gain better traction on the frozen field. After spotting Chicago a 13-3 lead through three quarters, the Giants stunned George Halas’ gang with 27 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, turning a potential ten-point loss into a 17-point win. You know this better, of course, as “The Sneakers Game.”

Don't count the butcher out! Brett wilkin still has a world of potential
Bodybuilding fans can be a fickle lot. Brett Wilkin turned pro in Classic and did his first two shows as a 212, hardly making an impact. But when he made his Open debut last summer at the Chicago Pro and came close to defeating Hunter Labrada, who went on that fall to place fourth at the Mr. Olympia, he was being praised to the heavens as being the next big thing. Update photos leading into the 2022 Arnold Classic only cemented that belief, with many feeling he would be the one to push eventual champion, Brandon Curry, the hardest. Alas, it was not meant to be. He failed to deliver on those lofty expectations, ultimately placing sixth out of nine men. In a flash, many labeled him yet another example of being "all hype," and decided he had no future in the sport. I spoke with Brett three weeks later about the Arnold, his new sponsor and a move from Colorado to Florida, and what he needs to do moving forward to ensure he is in contention for the win the next time he gets on stage - as well as when that will be.
