How much beer can it hold?

That is not the Stanley Cup subby

It does not have 3D faces of winners on it, therefore your argument is WRONG.

Is it just me or does that look like it was designed by Georgia O'Keeffe?

You Americans apparently still don't get it.

1)  It needs to be the appropriate size and weight to suggest grave importance.  Having it accompanied by official and revered guardians adds to this effect.
2) It should permanently add each champion directly to it.  This builds tradition, mystique, and myth.
3) It needs to be light enough to easily hoist above ones head and parade around in a celebratory fashion.  Both the top and bottom should act as handles for this purpose.
4) You need to be able to drink out of it.  Side handles permit this to be a one person job, but nobody should ever drink out of a trophy without a teammate/spotter/refiller anyways.
5) It needs to be instantly identifiable, rendering it iconic.
6) Wherever possible, have it donated by persons of importance, preferably a Lord.

Given the rules, here are a few examples for you to study carefully:

Exhibit A: Grey Cup in Import, celebratory, and drinking modes:

Exhibit B: Stanley Cup in Import, Celebratory, and Drinking modes

assets.sbnation.com

See how this works?  It's not rocket science.  For a people so good at hyping your own sports and buying into your own mythology, you well and truly suck in the trophy department.  It's like your national blind spot.  I honestly don't get it.

It's funny because when it comes to the Stanley Cup, as a Canadian, you won't get it either.

Also, the World Cup is awful for such a great event.

It looks like chocolate covered in gold foil

tuffsnake: Lombardi is still better


This trophy and the Lombardi are very similar, and regardless of what our Canadian brethren think, they're both excellent trophies.

You don't need to drink out of them, you don't need a picture of yourself on it. Rather, you need to be able to hold it to the sky with one hand, while drinking or spraying champagne with the other.

The World Cup, the Claret Jug, and the Lombardi are excellent trophies. The Larry O'Brien would be, if it was smaller. The Heisman would be great if it was for a team achievement. (You ever held one? Those bastards are heavy.)

I don't like the Lombardi.. always seems to be all smudged with finger prints.

The World Cup is over so there's plenty of FIFA officials with some spare time to be bribed for sports related activities.  Or if you really want to make the selections exciting, populate the committee with the folks who make the Grammy nominations.
 
2014-07-14 03:47:30 PM
I think it's a fine trophy, although perhaps a bit stuffy for college football. Seems like a business award. But classy too.

I like it.
 
2014-07-14 03:48:08 PM
If they make a new one every year, it's not that valuable

That will look nice in the Skandalaris Center in East Lansing.

Best? Not by a long shot, but, it isn't horrible either.

No way! How can you claim that's even close to the majesty of the Georgia O'Keefe Memorial Pro Bowl trophy?

Man, on a lonely night, in the dark...

I'm just saying we've all done things that we regret.
