Virginia Sports Hall of Fame opens today
Ok, I've been receiving a bit of good-natured ribbing around here lately for my proclivity towards sports-related posts, so I've been trying to cut back. However, I think this one is important to mention, and it's Virginia-related. The Virginian-Pilot reminds us that the brand-spanking new Virginia Sports Hall of Fame opens its new digs today in Portsmouth. Virginia has produced a great number of accomplished athletes in many sports. Whether its football (Bruce Smith), basketball (Dell Curry), tennis (Arthur Ashe), or golf (Sam Snead), Virginia has a long and storied sporting tradition that will now be on display in a fitting home.
Word is that Senator George Allen, whose father is in the Hall, will be on hand to dedicate its opening. I hope to get a chance to check it out soon and hope y'all will too. And be sure not to miss the Russ Potts exhibit while you're there.
