If you didn’t already know, Northeast Ohio played host to the first-ever Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan Fest this past weekend. The Fan Fest featured over 100 Hall of Famers, including the likes of Terry Bradshaw, Cris Carter, Barry Sanders, Marshall Faulk, Warren Moon, Warren Sapp and more.
There were plenty of meet and greet opportunities (as I shared a bag of chips with Marshall Faulk), “chalk talks,” panel discussions, clinics on a regulation turf field inside the I-X Center and even a concert perfoamnce by Terry Bradshaw (of all people).
From my understanding, this event was a “pilot” of sorts as the Hall of Fame is looking to take this show on the road. I can’t recall any other event that gave you such unrestricted access to NFL greats so, I am certainly hoping that it returns next year! Until then, go Browns!
