Last month, former Green Bay Packers linebacker Dave Robinson was one of two senior candidates finally elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Robinson, like Vince Lombardi-era guard Jerry Kramer, was one of those important cogs of those 1960s championship teams not inducted in the HOF.
Until this summer.
Robinson and Curly Culp, a defensive tackle with those dominant Hank Stram-coached Kansas City Chiefs teams from the 1960s, were the two senior members nominated and chosen to be inducted this summer.
So, if you are a Packers fan looking to make a trip to the HOF induction ceremonies this coming August, you will want to head on over to the Pro Football Hall of Fame website where you will find one of the coolest pages devoted to visitors.
Everything you will want to know about visiting the Hall in Canton, Ohio, is located here. To plan a visit, you will find travel information, a place to order tickets, preferred lodging, packages and special offers, a museum map and a listing of upcoming events, among many other options.
If you’re a Packers fan, you may have visited the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, the blue chip facilities of the NFL for honoring its own. You will find the same at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Though there are so many players who have not been inducted – Jerry Kramer – and many who have been curiously inducted – Warren Sapp – it’s still a wonderful place to visit. In fact, it’s a destination at which you probably want to spend a couple of days exploring.
And what better reason to make this summer you time. Not only can you revel in the history of the National Football League, but this summer you would be able to see one of our own – Dave Robinson – inducted.
