{June 26, 2016}   We started the day with football and ended with art..not bad.

That’s quite a combination, wouldn’t you say?

Today was quite a day! We started out with the Football Hall of Fame and ended with the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Since we toured the entire Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame yesterday, which I will tell you about, my original post disappeared, I’m sorry, we decided that we would go to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, only an hour away, how awesome is that!

We talked to a woman who clinched it for us, an hour away and only about two hours to tour? Sold! We were talking to a guy who was going to the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame today about it and the Football Hall of Fame, he wanted to go with us!

We headed out and listened to the Capitol Steps, Forbidden Broadway and laughed the whole way.

The museum was cool, a lot of good history and memorabilia, uniforms, facts, jewelry, ha ha.

The first question…why Canton and here’s your answer.

image

How uniforms have changed.

The evolution of the football.

Too cool! The tallest player in history was seven feet and the shortest was 5 1/2″. Know what that means? I could play football!! He played for the Staten Island Stapletons…any guesses where I grew up?

Dad remembers a lot of the players and facts, 
I learned a lot from him.

From the year I was born.

Overall, a very enjoyable experience

We left Canton and headed back towards Cleveland and the Museum of Art.

It was a really nice museum, spacious, lots of light.

I have always loved going to museums and viewing art with my dad. Like with music, he introduced me to toss wonderful world.  We wanted to look at paintings more than sculpture, furniture or pottery and we found it.

I love contemplating with him what the artist might have been thinking or “what were the thinking!?” We laugh,  discuss, contemplate. Awesome!

Another fabulous experience today. Awesome!
