I happened to notice the winner of the Masters Golf Tournament getting his green jacket.
The Kennedy Awards are clothespins on a Gay Pride ribbon?
The Stanley Cup for hockey is about 3 feet tall, weighs 34 pounds and you don’t even get to keep it - you have to give it back the following year (unless you win again.)
The Olympic Medals are kind of cool - but the value of each drops significantly from Gold to Silver to Bronze - although at least I heard they have started giving out cash awards as well with the medals!
Super Bowl winners seem to be happy getting jewelry.
So, if you win an award (other than cash!) what would you like to have presented to you?
A statue/sculpture? Plaque? Medal? Clothing? Bowl? Ring?
I would demand the resignation of another person in my line of business. It could be a strong competitor or some hack who makes the rest of us look foolish. Its sort of like the gladiators, and would make people strive harder because the payoff is greater.
If we’re restricting ourselves to things that are actually awards, as opposed to just “things I wish were awards,” I’ll take a Nobel Prize. It comes with a big cash award - over a million bucks - and I could use it.
