As previously noted the Best boys made their first trek to the Mecca, the Hall of Fame, yesterday. For anyone who is a football junkie the HoF is a must. Upon driving up from Cleveland, we were greeted by rows of tents being assembled for the great celebration. Banners of the inductees were hung from the stadium and their was great anticipation of the event to come.
The Hall itself was divided into two major segments. The old with the busts of the greats and the segments on history of the game. During this time I was impressed with the segment on Red Grange the Galloping Ghost of the 20′s who played for the Illini and then the Bears.
The new addition dedicated to Lamar Hunt, the Super Bowl wing, emphasized the modern day game and had interactive segments which would appeal to the younger fans. I was particularly proud of winning the trivia contest between me and my sons! Overall, I was left in awe of the progression of the game; from a slugfest, an offshoot from rugby, into the modern high velocity game we all know and love today.
Today, I look forward to our visit to the Browns training camp. Until then…
