Outside of Dayton, it’s probably not well known that the Gem City was the home of the first-ever NFL game back in 1920. It was played by the Dayton Triangles vs. the Columbus Panhandles. My guest today, Bruce Smith, is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Dayton Triangles, so join me as I talk with him in this episode about who the Dayton Triangles were, what they did, and where they went.
