Football season


Each Thursday I use this space to try to entertain you with something unique about the history of pro football.  Well, today is a little different. And, for the record, that’s not only because of the news we’re all waiting on from the NFL.

It’s more the case, for me and the rest of the staff here in Canton, that our calendar says it’s July 21. Despite the fact that most of us are, and have been, working seven days a week; and despite the fact we have hundreds of volunteers who help us, putting on the annual Enshrinement Festival is a huge undertaking.

I’m down the home stretch as just 16 days remain until the Class of 2011 Enshrinement Ceremony takes place. So, from now until then, I will provide multiple blog entrys, shorter than normal, and keep the focus on our great upcoming celebration of football. My regular weekly blogs will resume in mid-August.

Be sure to check back daily to see what I have to share.

I’ll close by reminding all football fans, that our Enshrinement Ceremony is truly a spectacular show. Our stage will be filled with the greatest names from the past like Sayers, Butkus, Allen, Aikman, Warfield, and Long as they help welcome the newest Class of enshrinees. So, game or no game, we’ll be ready to go!
