Another one bites the dust. At the urging of Ohio Govenor Mike Dewine, the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH has decided to scrap plans for a Hall of Fame game in 2020, scheduled for August 6th, amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic sweeping the nation. The news comes after 20,000 tickets were sold in just 30 minutes. This marks just the 5th time in the history of the Hall of Fame game era that the game will be cancelled or not completed.
Yours truly was at the last cancellation in 2016, when congealed paint reared it's ugly head during pregame. Other cancellations include 2011 (lockout), 2003 (lightning, so technically over half the game was played) and 1980 (same as 2003, except this year there was only 5 minutes left in the game).
This does not indicate a season cancellation, noted the NFL. At least not yet, right?
