Triangles on the Discover Dayton Podcast

I’m very proud to have been the first ever guest on Arch Grieve’s new “Discover Dayton” podcast. We talked about the origin of the team, some of the players and personalities. We also talked a bit about how the Triangles of old are related to the modern Indianapolis Colts.

Here’s the link for the Discover Dayton podcast: https://www.discoverdaytonpodcast.com/e/episode-1-the-dayton-triangles-with-bruce-smith/. While you’re here, check out the full history of the Dayton Triangles by clicking on the Listen link.

Now on Sports History Network!

“Triangles” is now part of Sports History Network, joining a roster of dozens of podcasts covering the histories of multiple sports. Episodes of the podcast are now available via Captivate, and I’ve updated the individual episode pages to point to the Captivate episodes. Those still interested in the podcast episodes on YouTube can get them here. Over the next couple of days, I’ll probably work on making this site more easy to use. Don’t forget that there’s content available here that isn’t in the podcast, so please check it out for a deeper dive into the Triangles.

My Dayton Triangles Project

The following post originally appeared on thisbrucesmith.com. I moved it here to consolidate all Dayton Triangles-related content on one site.

I grew up within walking distance of American professional sports history, but didn’t know about it until much later. North of downtown Dayton, Ohio on an October afternoon in 1920, the first game between members of what would become the National Football League was played. That day, the Columbus Panhandles visited the home-standing Dayton Triangles at Triangle Park. The Triangles won the game 14-0. There was another game played that day in Illinois, but in the Central time zone, so the Triangles-Pan Handles game was almost certainly the first to kick off.
