Football!

Fall football images from the Library of Congress, leading off with two by Carol Highsmith:

And if I have a shot of Auburn University, I need one of the University of Alabama, as well:

Football and cars seem to have always gone together. This picture was taken in 1939 by Marion Post Wolcott:

Who would think this a picture taken in the stands at a football game?

I can’t decide if this looks like fun or just stupid:

Washington Redskins start training. Washington, D.C. Aug. 28. He-man exercise took the place of calisthenics today as the Redskins, Washington's entry in National Professional Football League, started training. The boys "flying thru the air" are, left to right: Millner (Notre Dame), Rentner (Northwestern) and Peterson (West Virginia) Wesleyan) 8/28/37. LC-DIG-hec-23282

Nothing much has changed since Frank A. Nankivell drew this illustration for the cover of the November 14, 1906 Puck magazine of  “the sun wearing a football helmet, beaming rays onto a football shaped planet that shows a stadium with fans in the grandstands and a football game in progress; also shows, in the background, an outline of a young woman’s head.”
