Arizona Cardinals

  1. The team started as the Chicago Cardinals before moving to Boston and changing their name to the Pops and experimenting with a more popular orchestral style of football.
  2. Before establishing themselves in Arizona, the Cardinals played in St. Louis, where they were largely known for having the cotton candy in the NFL.
  3. In response to a dare from Jon Bon Jovi, Bill Belichick once read a dirty limerick about the Cardinals at a Super Bowl press conference.
  4. An unknown prankster hung a disco ball over the 50-yard line at the beginning of the 1976 season. It was removed when someone noticed it during the 3rd home game.
  5. Since 2007, season ticket holders are invited each July to bury their recently deceased dogs and cats in the team’s pet cemetery under the visiting team’s bench. In 2013, Larry Fitzgerald caused a minor incident by burying his beloved hamster there.
