For the true sports aficionado there is nothing short of actually being there which will do. However, history is happening in sports all the time and it is tough to be able to say you were in two places at once; let alone to know when some milestone hit or record setting touchdown or come from behind win will occur. Better perhaps to just watch the highlight reels.
Not so for many fans; there are a great deal who just like to get up close and personal with their hero's scenes, memorabilia, uniforms, and more. This is where the Sports Museum of America comes into play. The New York branch of the Sports Museum of America does fans of many sports one better as they have partnered with different organizations, groups, halls of fame, and leagues to bring their guests the best scenes from a lot of different sports.
Another unique facet to this museum is that it is the permanent home to the Heisman Trophy; an award doled out annually to the best player in college football.
