Recent news articles about Charlie Trippi who played for the Chicago Cardinals brings back memories of a game I attended at Phillips Field in Tampa during WWII.

Charlie Trippi was playing for a US Army team and Charlie Choo Choo Justice was playing for a US Navy team.

I can’t remember who won the game but few people were in attendance because it was raining and windy on the eve of a hurricane. I wonder if any one else remembers that game.

After the war Justice played for the Redskins and Trippi for the Cardinals and they probably played against each other again but there was no TV then so I can’t remember.
