NFL Debuts Special Game Balls For Sunday

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 8, 2011 – 4:58 pm

The NFL has really gone all-out to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of 9-11-01.

There’s a fine-line between ignoring a tragedy and turning the memorial into a circus, but the Redskins, Giants, and NFL have really gone above and beyond to meticulously plan a fitting tribute.

The NFL on FOX just tweeted a photo of the game ball that will be used in all of the games on Sunday:

Sunday should be a special moment of memorial for those that lost their lives, but should also be considered a celebration of how far we’ve come.  It’s going to be a very special afternoon of football in America.

    Is there any way I can get one??? I don’t care about the cost. My cousin barely survived the attack, and I think he would love one of these balls for his birthday!!!

    @Jason Rinaldi, mfaour-

    I don’t know of any plans to sell these, but I wouldn’t be shocked either. I haven’t heard of anything being made available through the Redskins, but if it was available then I would imagine it would be made available through NFL.com. I’ll keep my eyes open for it though, and if I see anything I’ll pass it along!
