Even If You Can't Bend It Like You-Know-Who...

One time, Minnesota Fats lost a pool match to some shmuck, and when they gave the guy a trophy, Fats scowled and said, "If I want a trophy, I'll buy one." And I understand what he was saying--if you want to distinguish yourself in something and give yourself the recognition you deserve--give yourself a trophy; why not? I've always wondered how many soccer trophies Beckham must have. I'm sure it's a lot! Some prefer money over trophies, but there are surely some trophies out there (The Lombardi Trophy, the Stanley Cup and the NBA Championship Basketball trophy, for example.) that are stunning and will always garner major kudos!
