The Lamar Hunt Super Bowl Gallery Opens in Canton, OH


There's a lot of activity at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Canton, OH. The ribbon cutting for the new brand new Lamar Hunt Super Bowl Gallery took place this morning.

Tributes to the man whose name is now attached to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s newest gallery were flowing this morning. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony took place  for The Lamar Hunt Super Bowl Gallery with remarks coming from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Hall of Fame officials, as well as Kansas City Chiefs Chairman Clark Hunt. The final person to step to the podium was Lamar’s widow Norma Hunt who has attended all 43 Super Bowls.

Mrs. Hunt went on:

“There is no honor on Earth that Lamar would rather have,” shared Norma about the gallery bearing her late husband’s name “because he loved the Super Bowl and he loved the Hall of Fame both so much.”
