The Fridge was not the first (or last) football themed character. Bazooka in 1985 is wearing Steve Grogan’s Patriots jersey. Coincidentally, Grogan was one of the quarterbacks that lost Super Bowl XX to the Bears. In 1990, Hasbro released Capt. Grid Iron, who even came with football shaped grenades! Until Next Time!
