    Default FOFL Celebrates New Hall of Fame Building

    Bardstown, KY
    As your commissioner, it is my honor to announce the opening of the new FOFL Hall of Fame Building in scenic Bardstown, Kentucky.

    The new Hall (or as I like to call it, "The House that Bourbon Built") features a main gallery celebrating every player bestowed this eternal honor, as well as separate sections celebrating each class of enshrinees and their achievements.

    I would also like to welcome CB Adam Todd, CB Brian Conger, and DT Jake Gray into the Hall as part of the Class of 2026. These three legends were bypassed by what is at times an imperfect voting system; I am choosing to recognize them as three special "Commissioner's Selections." I have also organized a select panel which will nominate similarly wronged players to be included in future classes.

    Regards,
    The Commish

    Sweet! Much better design here than the proposed 'Fritz's pussy' that was suggested for the FOBL Hall Location so many years ago.

    That is very, very nice. I love just looking at all the plaques on the main gallery. Thanks for putting this together.


    The whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand, every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you are part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.

    Fritz's Pussy is the theme of the reflecting pool and memorial garden (you could get lost in the hedges) with a view of the porta potties behind the Heybrad Dumb Luck Saloon.

    Bump. I need to get to work on the 2027 class:

    QB Fred Gillespie - going in with TOR, have the uni style.

    QB Benjamin Fuller - going in with STC (!), need style input from Wade.

    DT Louie DiStefano - he's a People person. Need style input from Fonzie.

    ILB Phillip Riley - goes in with Seal Beach. I'll come up with a style.

    WR Burt Pearson - CHE, if Quik has some uni input (I don't even know if the jerseys are predominantly red or mustard).

    Also pending: HoF committee selections.

    You got more colors than I ever seen, pink, red, yellow and in between.

    I love looking at that HoF! I just wish there were more Ayr jerseys... Oh, btw RANDALL SOSA is missing the little flourishes at the corners of his graphic.
