Yesterday we took N to the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield MA. He had a great time looking at the exhibits and trying out a couple of skill challenges. 

I made him measure his wingspan. 

A real highlight for him was seeing all the sneakers. He’s a bit obsessed with sneakers in general but seeing NBA player sneakers was a real thrill. I must say I was impressed by Shaq’s size 23. They’re in the photo next to the full size basketball. 

Here is a statue of the man who invented basketball. Overall it was a very neat place.

    What fun! I have been to the women’s hall of fame in Knoxville, but never the one in Springfield, which is silly as it is so much closer! And I seem to recall seeing Larry Bird’s sneakers in Boston one time – those guys all have crazy big feet. 🙂
