Q&A Questions and Answers:
He was one of the greatest gunslingers to ever grace the gridiron. call them fanatics, but there's a town out west that changed its name in his honor. what is the name of the little town.
I assume the town you're thinking about is Ismay, Montana -- located about 60 miles east of Miles City. As part of a publicity stunt, Ismay changed its name to Joe, Montana... but only until after the Super Bowl game.
I really think the town that fits your riddle best, however, is Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. The boroughs of Mauch Chunk and East Mauch Chunk merged in the 1950s and took the name of Native American football star Jim Thorpe. Thorpe, the first president of what later became the NFL, was arguably the greatest athlete of the 20th century. Ismay's name change was temporary, but Jim Thorpe has been around for more than a half-century. What's that you say? Jim Thorpe isn't "out west"? Sure it is -- it's in western Carbon County!
