Sorry about the double post, but why is this statue in a janitor's closet (or whatever)?

My thoughts exactly.

In addition to all of the players, Comerica Park has a bunch of tiger statues all over... outside, on top of the scoreboard, etc.

I'm not sure if this is true to real life, but I know that if you played with the Tigers in MLB 2K5 and you hit a homerun the eyes of the tigers on top of the scoreboard would light up orange.

Herb Brooks outside the Xcel Energy Center

Man, does he ever look like Brian Mulroney!

Bernie Federko in the Keil Center. Theyre going to move it outside next season when they add the MacInnis statue.

That is a very inaccurate statue of Al MacInnis!

In all seriousness, anyone in Montreal? One Thursday, they are supposed to be opening the new Centennial Plaza next to the Bell Centre, which is supposed to feature statues of many Canadiens legends, so you may want to check it out.

That is amazing. Thanks for sharing. Do they sell mini replicas of that for a charity foundation? I would love one.

The Montreal Canadiens unveiled some Player Statues today at the opening of Centennial Plaza in hour of the 100th birthday.

Wake Forest put a big statue up of the Deacon back in October in front of Groves....er.....BB&T Field. As far as mascot statues, I dont think you can get any cooler than this! I love this statue. You really gotta see this in person.

There's another bust of Hank Aaron in front of Carson Park in Eau Claire, where he started in the minor leagues. (The park is used by the Northwoods Eau Claire Express; I suggested the team be named the Hammers in Aaron's honor).

And here's one of Bart Starr in Bart Starr Plaza outside the Resch Center, the arena about a half-block from Lambeau Field...

yes, the eyes of the Tigers on Comerica Park's scoreboard do light orange when the Tigers score a run.

Would have been a much better name. Add the historical connection, and it would have been perfect. Shame that they decided to go bush with the name.

Nice. I'd like to see statues of the players whose numbers have been retired somewhere outside Lambeau itself, as long as they didn't interefere with the coaches' statues.
