Usually, a Fuzzy Thurston involves a fifth of Jack and an Armenian man's unshaved butt. But, did you know it was also a Packers offensive lineman from 1958 to 1967? The infamous "Ice Bowl" between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys took place on New Years Eve 1967 in arctic temperatures that would make an eskimo cringe (-15 degrees farenheit with a wind chill of -48). In a pre-Under Armour era, Fuzzy Thurston opted for alcoholic anti-freeze by pounding 10 vodkas (which supposedly worked for a chef on the Titanic) prior to game time.This probably didn't happen because there's no reports of him getting 50 false starts, but we have no doubt that he aided his quarterback by pregaming like your buddies in college. Anyway, he retired a few weeks later, opened up a bar, and,had to sell his prized possessions to pay Uncle Sam.
Fred "Fuzzy" Thurston stays warm with vodka.
