Tuesday Cannon Fodder: trophies

Today’s CF is inspired by the Korean Baseball Organization. The NC Dinos won their first title in franchise history and apparently they were super dominant and fun to watch. But all that is besides the point. We’re here to talk about the KBO championship celebration, which involved A GIANT, BADASS SWORD. Supposedly they’ve got an actual trophy too, but whatever.

Apparently it’s some kind of product placement thing and NC Dinos specific, but I don’t really care. It’s absolutely amazing. Sports needs more sword celebrations. Any major trophy that isn’t the Stanley Cup (because Lord Stanley’s Cup is hands down the best and only good trophy in sports) should be immediately retired and replaced with a sword.

Yeah, you can’t drink out of it, which is one of the main functions of a trophy, but you can’t drink out of the MLB trophy (the Washington Nationals tried), the NBA trophy, the Lombardi trophy (NFL), and so on. You know, if you got creative and were careful (not two words I’d association with a bunch of athletes that just won a title), you could probably use a sword as a shot luge of some sort.

But that doesn’t really matter. Swords are awesome and different and I want to see more celebrations that feature swords.

Oh, and congratulations to the NC Dinos.
