We play in a fantasy football league known as “Giraffe Hugs Brontosaurus”. The league was founded by our esteemed Commissioner in Bethlehem, PA near the turn of the century. Every year, we gather at an undisclosed location somewhere along Route 476 for our draft and end of summer feast. Many members of the league contribute in one way or another to this celebration of football, food, and the USA in general. Our contribution is the league trophies.
Naturally the top seed takes home a replica of the Lombardi trophy, but we try to add new trophies and titles as often as possible. We finish the champ’s trophy with a silver spray paint to make it a little more special. In addition to the Champ, we also print a toilet in honor of the winner of the “Toilet Bowl”. This matchup is generally the best of the worst within the league, and is essentially a 5th place award.
The word on the street is that tomorrow at the draft, we will be having a beer pong competition between two warring factions within the league. In anticipation of this we have recreated the chalice that we had previously printed, and touched it up with a bronze spray paint finish.
