Sad Days for The Left Guard

November 2, 1976 Milwaukee Sentinel

Sad days, indeed for the football-themed steakhouse chain.  Oh, and the " featuring Mexican food..." that Max McGee converted the Minneapolis location into...that became a little something called ChiChi's. 

Menu cover from the Left Guard.  With all the licensing restrictions on NFL properties, I can't imagine the NFL of today allowing the use of one of their team's helmets to be incorporated into a pseudo coat of arms for a player's restaurant, even with the payment of what I am sure are hefty licensing fees.
