As you can see Linda and I arrived at 1:48 and we spent a good three hours viewing all the exhibits. One could easily spend a good deal more time in order to really see everything “in depth”.

There is an instant replay machine  you can use to “make the call”  but it was being monopolized when Linda and I were there. F.Y.I.:: Today, the U.S. military uses the same technology the NFL uses for instant replay to analyze thousands of hours of video from Afghanistan and Iraq.

jtf Obviously, I had to pick and choose what to post and I will tell you I left a lot of “good stuff” out.. The last “exhibit” before leaving is the movie theatre. Talk about incredible footage of the Super Bowl Wow……. I rate the Pro Football Hall Of Fame a 9 out of 10…..

All photos are mine..quotes and sayings from various web sites on the net…  Hope you enjoyed your virtual tour of the Pro Football Hall Of Fame Canton,Ohio.

Love it even if you aren't a football fan

Our football is a bit different :)

I can see why you spent 3 hours there. What a wealth of information! I am not a football fan. Even I got excited, though, to see Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, on Sunday morning :-)

Out of my 'comfort zone' but neat thing for the city to have.

Really enjoyed this. Great pix! Especially like the one of Otto Graham in high-top gym shoes.
