Yes I Can Turn a Football Trip into a Fiber Trip
And I found Boston and Hartford. My 'rents live in NH, wicked close to Boston. And my best friend is in Norwalk, wicked close to Hartford. This just kinda reminded me how far away I am from you guys!!
Later that afternoon we went to the College Football Hall of Fame, also located in South Bend, IN. Many of you know how much I love football, and all sports. So this place was wicked cool.
We learned about the history of football as well as college football. Not surprising, football, soccer, and rugby all have origins in the same game which was started in Europe.
Here are some of the early items used as a football. Yes, that includes a skull, rock, cow's bladder and hardened cow patties!
Here are some of the more modern day footballs. Guess what... Some of the early footballs were hand sewn!
Speaking of handmade. Some of the early equipment and uniforms were all hand sewn, knit or woven! The SO looooved me as I ran around snapping pictures of all the handmade items.
Here is an early uniform. Most of which is handmade. And check out the socks....
Knitted socks! They even look handmade! I love it! (told you I could turn a football trip into fiber goodness).
The FHoF also had a "hands on" area. The SO and I had a little fun.
