Hall of fame

Its funny, this seems to be very much an American idea that hasnt yet caught on over here. Pretty thankful for that in all honesty, as I can think of nothing worse than mentally challenged football (soccer version) players over here trying to make speeches. Mind, with there egos, everyone of them would probably think they should be in the Hall of Fame anyway! But besides…

The only one I’ve actually been to so far, is what I would term one of my lesser interests, the NHL one, in Toronto. But yes, it was interesting to see all the history there, especially some of the equipment they used in the dim, distant past, quite frightening how little protection they really had! Clearly the 2 of more interest to me would be the MLB one, and the one that is the reason for this blog today, the NFL.

I know, not everybody can be in it, but seriously, no Jim Plunkett, thats the big omission for this fan of the game. Well alright, Steve Tasker too, but that might be more biased lol! But what happens of more significance this weekend, as long as the inductions, is the first game of pre season, strangely enough called the Hall of Fame game! Made more interesting, given all the furore this spring, by the fact that New Orleans are in it. But Sean Payton isnt lol! Anyway, enough of all that…

What it does mean is that its only 5 weeks to full season starting, and something for us NFL fans to look forward to. Maybe Buffalo can even make the play offs this year, I’m more hopeful than in recent years, it has to be said. No, I cant see us winning the division unless something happens to Tom Brady, but play off chances, most definitely. Will I be saying that in a few months time, lets wait and see! Hopefully I will get to see the Bills on TV at some point this season at least.

The song, what could be more apt this weekend, than…

  1. You know, the Basketball Hall of Fame is only about 90 minutes from your September vacation destination, and the Baseball Hall of Fame but an hour from one of your trips next year . . .

  2. Basketball is probably the one of least interest to me, so probably wont worry too much about that. I suspect the Baseball HOF might take longer than that to reach by public transport lol! I know, us non drivers…
