Being a football fan all my life, I am excited about finally having the funds to make a trip to Canton, Ohio to see some of my favorite players and coaches get inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

I have been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame a few years back and enjoyed every minute of the displays and of course the hall of all the busts of the players that have been inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

But now, I get to go and see the induction not only of the players and coaches from the 2020 class, but because the ceremony was postponed from a year ago, I will also get to see the class of 2021 get inducted as well.

So besides getting to see Jimmy Johnson and Cliff Harris get inducted with the class of 2020, one of my favorite players from my childhood, Drew Pearson will be inducted in the class of 2021 and I will get to see them all get inducted as well as seeing Peyton Manning, Troy Polamalu, Bill Cowher, and Paul Tagliabue the former commissioner of the NFL.

This will all go on beginning with the Hall of Fame Game which will be next Thursday, August 5, 2021, the 2020 enshrinement on August 7, and the 2021 enshrinement on August 8.

So I will be buying a lot of memorabilia with all my favorite Cowboys and the other great players, coaches, and former commissioners and enjoying a weekend of football and memories that will last a lifetime.
