I'd say I've been a legitimate football fan for about 10-12 years of my life. It was during high school I really started to follow the Bengals and care/understand about the amazing world of football. In fact, I remember my junior year of high school - when everyone starts asking you what you want to do after high school - telling people that one day I'd work for the Bengals in some capacity. The passion was born in the 2000s and has only grown since then.
I say all that to say that a trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was well overdue when I finally got to go two weekends ago! Jared and I made the quick road trip to Canton, Ohio with my parents for a long weekend of awesomeness. We arrived Friday evening to our ADORABLE hotel room (seriously, I was obsessed with the blue and orange decor) and grabbed dinner at the closest BBQ restaurant the guys could find. Hog Heaven got a thumbs up from all of us- but especially my dad and Jared.
We started the very next morning at the hall of fame and I couldn't really contain my excitement. I had no idea what to expect, but I knew I would love the place no matter what. I've never known anyone who had visited the HOF so we were going into it with high expectations based solely on our love for football.
We were right to be excited though- we all LOVED touring it. We spent a good 3.5-4 hours there and probably could have stayed even longer but we were ready for some food after that long. #hangry
There is an awesome theatre that shows highlights from the previous year's Super Bowl in the HOF and my gosh, I felt like I was reliving it right along with the players. The film footage they have, the sideline commentary, it was awesome. And definitely had me dreaming of the day the Bengals will bring it all home to Cincinnati :)
We had so much fun exploring all aspects of the NFL. History, hall-of-famers, record-breakers, size of NFL players hands/legs- you name it, we learned about it!
