Craig Shemon here, with the Shemon and Sheppard Show, playing Wiki-Pete-ia every weekday at 4:45-ish on ESPN Southwest Florida!  On this day in 1919 the Green Bay Packers were born when Curly Lambeau bought the team for $500.  So, today we will do Green Bay Packers Trivia.   We will pit Pete against an audience member.  May the best man or woman win Green Bay Packers Trivia!

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

Obviously, the Packers have a long and storied history over the last century.  They have had some of the best teams ever assembled.  Their legendary players and coaches over the years rival those of the legendary New York Yankees in famous sports lore.   They still play on the same hallowed grounds as the famous Ice Bowl.  The NFL’s Super Bowl Trophy is named after their famous coach Vince Lombardi.  Clearly the Packers are among the most famous franchises in sports.  So, let’s play Wiki-Pete-ia!   Good luck!
