Matty, your documentary is.............RIDICULOUS. I have never seen such detail to chronicle your adventure. It must have taken a LOT of time.
MANY THANX, very enjoyable

Did anyone else go to the roundtable? We had to leave early, because my kids were acting up (I dragged them to about 10 hours of HOF activities, so I can't blame them too much). Sounds like we didn't miss much.
The round table was cool but a little disappointing. It wasn't very long at all. I wish they had dedicated more time to it.

Re: Matty in Canton (updated)

hey Matty, it looks like you and I were sitting really close together for the game. We were in section 11, row X, seats 3-5.

I'm going to try to get my pictures online after work tonight. In the meantime, it looks like my office went to hell in a handbasket without me, so I probably won't be posting much for the next few days.

Hail

Well, at least we won the football at the table, I guess.

Nice, I would have won it if I had started our count, I let the guy across from me start and they won it. I was going to buy one but once I saw it was $40 I changed my mind.

Re: Matty in Canton (updated)

Good photos -- thanks for sharing

The Pat Tillman display is cool -- I especially like the small statue of him, with his hair flying.

Also, John Elway looked about as Chachi as can be. I'm surprised his collar wasn't popped. LOL

LOL Elway was definitely DTI, the front of his shirt was wide open too. He was looking like a playboy.

Re: Matty in Canton (updated)

I left my voice in Canton in Section 12, and I'm not buying ESPN's report that Art's ovation (the second one, BTW) clocked in at 4 minutes-4 seconds. I'd say we topped 5.0.... But that's just me. How else could you fit in chants of, "ART! ART! ART! ….IT'S ABOUT TIME…IT'S ABOUT TIME….?" Hopefully Art knew we cheered to make up for the years he sat on the HOF bench, and certainly the years he gave us as #81. Had there been a beer stand, I believe we'd still be there cheering Art!

My gripes: The Hall of Fame folks must not have performed the due diligence that would've told them that 15k fans (without fan packages) were coming from Redskin Country. Unprepared and unorganized, they ran out of bad food, couldn’t keep up with ticket sales into the museum (looooooong lines in the sun even when you prepaid), no clear parking/shuttle signage, and most disappointing the lack of Art Monk/Green HOF memorabilia in the gift shop. Now this is a total whine, but only a quarter of the store was devoted to HOF Skins stuff. Shift the Seahawks aisle to another room for the day for crying out loud...by Saturday morning all I could scoop was a mug. Darrell Green stuff was MIA everywhere, even his jersey in a showcase of the 2008 Class showcase. Someone said there were contract issues.

Still, the weekend was a truly a life-highlight especially when we stumbled upon Joe Gibbs' bus! A truly awesome farewell to a truly awesome, historic era. A torch-passing.

Hail!

Hey SkinDogg, what row were you in? We were in Z row seats 3-8. I was the pitiful hungover guy that looked ready to vomit every 15 seconds. You should have tried to go to the HOF on Friday. A little crowded but nowhere close to Saturdays crowd.

Sat. was a complete zoo. I couldn't believe how many people were crammed into that little small area.

Didn't get to Canton until Friday pm and headed to the museum strickly to hit the gift store. They wouldn't let us in without paying the $18 entry fee that wouldn't transfer to the next day.

As for my row, can't remember where I say, bu i'd wager halfway down from the entrance. Complete zoo, I'll say. So, so so glad I went.
