This week I get to talk to Bill Keenist, a member of the Detroit Lions since 1985. He has had various roles with the company on the PR and Communications side of things, and now he is the team historian. We discuss many topics revolving around the Detroit Lions, which is perfect for me, because I'm a die-hard. We bring up Barry, Thanksgiving memories, and so much more.

The Football History Dude is a show dedicated to teaching NFL fans about the rich history of the game we all know and love. I’m your host, Arnie Chapman, and I’m just a regular dude that loves football and is a nerd when it comes to learning about history. I created this show to share the gridiron knowledge nuggets I gain from researching various topics about the history of the National Football League. Each episode I welcome you to climb aboard my DeLorean to travel back in time to explore the yesteryear of the gridiron, and yes, that’s a reference to the Back to the Future Movies.
