Sunday, December 17, 1933

Mother and I went to church. Mother rode the streetcar downtown. Pauline and I went to church. Stayed all night at Mrs. Raifert's.

The Chicago Bears defeat the New York Giants 23-21
in the first National Football League championship game.

The NFL's first-ever championship game in 1933 featured its fair share of wild plays.
Included among them was the game-winning touchdown by the Bears. In a designed
trick play, Bronko Nagurski faked the run, threw a jump pass 14 yards to the helmet-less
Bill Hewitt,  who in turn lateraled to Bill Karr who ran 19 yards to the end zone.
