4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Hate, All Love, March 8, 2006
This review is from: Bear Memories: The Chicago-Green Bay Rivalry (IL) (Images of Sports) (Paperback)
Beth Gorr's BEAR MEMORIES: the Chicago-Green Bay Rivalry is a true labor of love and a first-rate job of reporting. She got the men who counted - they who were in the trenches and on the sidelines for the NFL's most enduring as well as endearing rivalry.

For the story of the Bears and Packers rivalry is a matter of love. Love of combat, love of competition, grudging respect for the bums on the other side of the ball and the other sideline. Love for all they and their predecessors have stood for and defended since George Halas and Curly Lambeau faced off for the first time in 1921 when Green Bay joined the league the Papa Bear founded the year before in that Canton, Ohio Hupmobile showroom.

Ms. Gorr has captured the essence of that marvelous rivalry, must reading for all fans who love the game of pro football. Unfortunately, all her magnificent efforts were marred by one of the sloppiest jobs of copy reading and editing imaginable. Blown captions and misspellings cannot be overcome. They stand out like sore thumbs, throb like toothaches, and annoy the reader. She deserved the same first rate treatment from her editors that she supplied with her outstanding manuscript.

Still, read it and enjoy. You cannot go wrong.
