1959 Football Tackle Illustration

There are two things that I have┬áconsistently hated throughout my long life. The first is olives. Yuck. The second is football. Both are present in abundance at┬ámy house on Thanksgiving day. To acknowledge this long tradition which I have learned to tolerate, here is a cool illustration by Thornton Utz of a football tackle. It accompanied a short story titled “Football Majors at Pacific U” by William Samrot. The short story appeared in the October 1959 edition of Cosmopolitan magazine.
