There’s No Place Like Canton.

I have to admit – my expectations weren’t too high for the city of Canton, Ohio. I knew the Pro Football Hall of Fame was going to be unreal, but I had no idea that this town was going to be so sweet! No joke! Even though I’ve only been here for a couple hours, this town is making a killer first impression. Now when I mean awesome, I don’t mean crazy clubs with a sweet downtown. I’m talking “Middletown, USA.” When people think of America, they should think Canton, Ohio – a completely flat town with homely streets of middle-upper class houses. My hotel is in between Route 77 (a great middle of the country highway) and a sweet-ass strip mall which includes Target, Game Stop, and Borders. Can you get any more American?!?! I love it.

There is nothing like Fawcett Stadium. I’ve never seen a field that too big for a high school field, but too small for a college team. This stadium is the perfect size for the Hall of Fame game. I’ve also seen people wearing jerseys from every single team in the NFL. It’s almost like all the die-hard football fans came to Canton to chill together for the weekend. Nothing like it. You might laugh, but I believe this is one of the best places for a family vacation (during Hall of Fame weekend).

Even though he killed the Giants his entire career, I respect the hell out of Emmitt Smith. Absolutely one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard. Gets pretty emotional. (Go to 8:53 in the video where Emmitt talks about Darryl Johnston – I love how he gives a shout out to his fullback)

Also, everyone reading this better watch the Hall of Fame game tomorrow.
