College Football HOF
some images from my personal buckeye legend gallery:
Little late on this but yesterday they held an autograph session for Hopalong at "Cardboard Heroes" in City Center Mall @ 6PM. I dont think anyone knew about it because not too many people showed up at all. Matter of fact, the line was depleated by 6:20. Otherwise, he looked to be in great health and it was awesome to shake a legends hand, not to mention having an autographed football by him.
Hopalong, still along

Complete luck I stumbled on this, but Hop Cassady will be signing autographs at the Kenwood Towne Centre in Cincinnati today from 2-5 PM at Cardboard Heroes.
Scout$--All-Time Greatest No. 4: Hopalong Cassady
Two time All-American, two time tOSU MVP, Big Ten MVP, 1955 AP Athlete of the Year, Heisman Trophy winner, won a National Championship, 3 year letterwinner and Big Ten title with the baseball team, elected to College Football HOF, and has his jersey number retired by tOSU.
[sarcasm] Eh... he was ok. [/sarcasm]
I'm pretty excited.. I learned today that I'll get to meet Mr. Cassady in a couple weeks. :)
Where? and can I come? I'll give you all my rep if I can meet him.
There's an autograph signing at Buckeye Room in Tuttle, you can meet him there. :tongue2:
Totally cool! Enjoy the day and the moment with Mr. Cassady. Not only one of the Greatest Buckeye players ever, but EASILY the Best Nickname!
