My son and I went to the CFHOF in Atlanta yesterday, and it was a lot of fun. What we enjoyed the most was the virtual reality quarterback thingy. You put on a headset and you're on the field. We registered as Tennessee Vols, of course, and all their smart tech stuff recognizes you by name and by team. So when we got to play QB, it was behind a Big Orange line. We both did pretty well, and here's a clip of a completion by my boy. 

 

Rob, you'll notice he's wearing the Manning jersey I won in the pickem. 

 

If you guys are in Atlanta and have a few hours to kill, I recommend the HOF. We spent about 4 hours there. Here's a photo of a 1901 helmet with a nose mask.

One of my favorite plaques with a quote from the bammer legend:

I'd like to play more than 5 plays to get used to it. It's pretty hard. When you have the headset on, you have a 360 degree view of the field. I was playing against Air Force, and on one play a defensive guy came crashing up the middle toward me. It was so realistic I threw my forearms up to defend myself. :smily961:

Whats the cost for playing?

 

It's included in the entrance fee. I paid about $49 for 2 of us.
