Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Ray Nitschke

Leading into Sunday’s Superbowl game, we thought a fitting podcast would include this Green Bay Packer middle linebacker, who led the Pack to five NFL championships, and victories in the first two Superbowls. Ray Nitschke spent his entire 15-year career with the Packers and was the leader of the defense for Coach Vince Lombardi. He was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1978. His number 66 was retired by the Packers in 1983. You might remember Nitschke tackling Peter Tork in the Monkee’s movie “Head,” and his appearance in the football comedy “The Longest Yard.” Every year on Ray’s birthday, Dec. 29, I would call him. This time he predicted the winner of the 1985 Superbowl. And, I got a surprise when I asked him which game of his professional career he remembered the most.
