Weezies Wrap Up- 1903 Princeton vs Yale w/Video
The Drive Friday 2-24-12- Hey guys I found this as I was looking up stuff for the Wrap Up and thought you fellow history geeks out there might want to see it. Its the oldest known footage of a football game ever. Shot by Thomas Edison there isn’t any sound to it so playing it on the radio just wouldn’t work so I thought I’d post it here. Watch how quickly after the play ends that they get back on the line of scrimmage for the next play.
Skip to about two minutes in and that’s when the action starts. Enjoy!
