    Canton, Ohio. Heck yes, if Carter makes it, I'll be there. Are we gonna have the PP.O Tent set up somewhere so we all know where to meet? I know you can buy tour packages from the NFL and there will be a tour from Minneapolis if Carter gets in. The package includes tickets to the enshrinement dinner the night before and other stuff. I don't have a clue what it costs.
    What we could do, if there were enough of us we could all stay in the same hotel and maybe rent out a conference room.
    I have no idea what they cost but if we divided-up the cost we could cover it.
    We would have a fricken blast like you would never believe.


    The Cities is only 11 hours from Canton and the East Coast folks are not far.
    I know we have a lot of Ohio members on the site as well.
    Who cares, we'll take any Viking fan!
    Man, what a blast that would be.

    As time gets near I will look into hotels and such.
    People could fly into the Akron/Canton airport as opposed to Cleveland.
    Hell, I would be happy to pick people up.
    There are a lot of arrangements we could make.


    Just think, I whole hord of PP.O members at the Hall of Fame.
    It would never be the same again!

    I have met Cris Carter, and spent some time with him...he's as focused off the field (when working) as he was on it.
    I am (guaranteed) one of his biggest fans, not just because of his accomplishments on the football field.
    He is, or should be, an inspiration to us all...A rare MAN, who made mistakes when young (we all did), learned from them, was motivated by them, got his priorities aligned, and made his distinct mark in his profession...and, his family.


    I will be there for his induction, with bells on.
    Cris Carter is a symbol, an example of improvement we should all, not necessarily admire (he hates that), rather, we should look at ourselves and introspect.
    He embraced his responsibilities, is a dogged worker, a class act, not to mention one of the funniest people I have ever met.
    I can't wait.
    The first "modern day" Vike in the HOF...awesome!!!
    Great post.
    I like to consider myself one of his biggest fans.
    Yes, he was great on the field but his life is truly an inspiration to anybody!

    Maybe we could get Cris to make an appearance at out party?

    [size=13pt]ENSHRINEMENT PACKAGES[/size]

    Let me tell you, if you plan to attend you need to reserve waaaaayyyyyy in advance.
    This stuff goes really quick.
    If you have to go on ebay or a broker...expensive as hell.

    I think I would go with the [size=10pt]Enshrinement Memories Package[/size].
    I could care less about the game on Sunday, I just want to go to the enshrinement.
    I may even try to put my deposit down soon.

    Tied with John Randall for my favorite Viking ever. I'm glad he got nominated and hope he makes it.

    I am pretty sure that Carter is a first ballot lock ... but the NFL Hall of Fame loves players with rings ... so maybe he will have to wait a season.

    Approx. $400 just for the enshrinment? Youch!

    I guess this poor fan won't be going.

    That was for the hotel too.

    The package I linked was $225.
    If we get a hotel you can stay in my room free of charge.
    Just get in your jalopy and drive here.
    A weekend of PP.O and Carter in the HoF is well worth it.

    Perhaps a road trip is in order. Webby needs to fire up the PP.O bus.
