A cross country drive and a week stop in Nashville has left me with a few spare days before rolling out once again. This time I'll be carrying a much light load, and one less vechile, and going to The HOF ! However, upon a quick inspection I see that load may be lighter, but a load none the less. Dolphins
gear, all of it. For my perfect slice of Dolphin tailgating. And I'm not even sure about where to park or what the plan is. But, I do know this,...I'm taking my bike, the stadium flag, & the good times will follow.
I'm rolling into Canton early enough to bust out a training ride on Saturday that will definately take a few slow laps around The Hall. I doubt there will be many cyclist hanging around in a full Dolphins team kit. I should stand out and who knows maybe some fan will take notice and be motivated to donate. In cycling is a team sport and you have to know when to attack. I'm attacking this weekend !
Then there is this thing I want to do in front of the HOF and I could use your help here by getting the word out. I plan to take the retired ( 10ft x 12ft ) stadium flag to the front of The HOF around 1:30 on Saturday & 4PM on Sunday as to get a giant group picture with as many DolFans as I can with the flag,....at The HOF ! In my mind I'm saying "please don't let me be the only fan out there". Lots of football history has made its way to Canton for one reason or another. Now our old Stadium flag will too, and I'll gladly bring it back when JT goes into The Hall !
On gameday I wish I knew where I was parking at this moment as I think all lot parking at Fawcett Stadium by permit only. I want to be close to the stadium, so my option is to park in someone yard right by stadium, park at school ( 300 yards away they say), or park at the fairgrounds and take a shuttle there,....NOT. Thinking yard close by,but hoping I can manage it get into lot a stadium. And did I mention a load,....of Dolphins gear:
2 tables & 5 chairs
custom painted Dolphins grill ( in the hopes someone brings food )
custom painted Dolphins cooler w/ 3 cases of beer
2 flagpoles & 4 flags ( one extra large ! )
Dolphin statue and pedestal
random signs, banners, & decor,
Lest I forget my bike & gear
Dolphins clothes,...4 diferent looks, only there 2 days,....plus wife's gear !
some other adult beverages
and lastly,...a big smile.
If the Super Bowl
is the NFL's big year end party, HOF weekend celebrates all things football and signals tha start of a new season. And since it's The Hall 50th,...this party should be a good one.
Then there is the game,....
