Canton, Ohio -- what's this city famous for? William McKinley? How about the birth of American-style competitive football? The Pro Football Hall of Fame is here for a reason. After all, this is where the whole thing started, and not only on the professional level. The high school teams around here play a traditional rivalry that's considered the equivalent of a state championship. The local hall of fame is much less well-known than its professional counterpart but no less important for true historians of the game. Hey, it's not a game -- it's a way of life. Of course, not everyone agrees, so for those not so enamored of the autumnal national pastime, this quick trip provides something a little more quirky but no less deserving of your admiration and respect.
