Yes We Canton!

In honor of this weekend's Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions, I figured it was time to post my pictures of an equally significant but far sillier gridiron ceremony: the annual presentation of the Super Duper Bowl trophy to the champion of the Fantasy League of Gentlemen/Gentlewomen. Each year, the trophy (which may cost no more than $15) is presented by the previous year's champion to the new champion, which meant that thanks to my Fighting Coelacanths' triumph over the Screamin' Boiled Lobsters at the end of 2009, I received it from my old pal Daniel C. Sipp, owner/operator of the 2008 champs, the Donkeys.

The 2009 trophy was built and painted by Dan from a model kit, with a few special touches to indicate its significance in FLOGG. Here's a closer look at the trophy:
