Where The Heck Are You Supposed To Put This Trophy?

By Posted on 17 Comments 2 min read

What are you supposed to do with the ‘Sports Personality of The Year’ trophy? Look at the size of the thing. First of all, many congratulations to a worthy winner, Geraint Thomas, on his award. I hope he gets it home because he’ll need a big van with a couple of hefty guys to move the thing. For those not familiar with this massive pot of silverware, it’s awarded every year to a sports person by the BBC. They are chosen by the public.

You Need To Live In A Castle

When he does get it home, where is he going to put it? Just look at it. If you live in a 12th-century medieval castle with 25 bedrooms and enough land to have a shed in every corner then perhaps he might find a hidey hole for it. However, I think he lives in a modern terrace house somewhere in Wales. So that trophy, when it’s delivered, is going to take up any spare room Geraint Thomas has assuming they get it through the front door.

Get That Floor Supported

Perhaps the winner doesn’t get to take it home. Maybe they just scratch his name on it and show it off in a huge hall with lots of space so people can queue and look at it. There’s no way his family will be watching T.V. especially over Christmas with that thing sat in the middle of the living room floor. He’d best make sure that those floorboards are fitted with extra strengthening too.

Should Have Been A Weight Lifter

I wonder why they make the thing so big? There’s no taking away that it’s a huge achievement to win this trophy and well deserved too. Although Geraint Thomas won it for his cycling abilities I think he must have wished he was a weightlifter.

    I suspect that ‘taking it to the NEC to show it off’ is not likely after what happened when he took his Tour de France one there…
    A highly deserving winner and one likely to silence the usual ‘but he/she doesn’t have a personality’ complaints.

      The most modest and deserving winner I’ve seen. He has done remarkably well.

    I didn’t realise it was that big. It’s not just big it’s HUGE, and to the point of being vulgar! I agree, where on earth does someone keep something of this proportion? I have difficulty finding space to display the endless stream of extra large school photos that my family insist on giving me every time a new school year arrives! I keep hinting for a smaller size but I don’t think they hear!

      Yes, it’s huge and will probably need dusting 24/7

    The anonymous comment with the moan about school photos was from me Trev. I have no idea how I did that, but it could come in very useful at times, if only I knew how!

      I think you can do it anonymously if you’re not logged into WordPress. 🙂

    With my boxing, and weightlifting, maybe I could have it. Haha.

      I’m sure your weightlifting experience would come in handy for picking it up, Susie 😁

    I wonder if it’s like the Stanley Cup for Hockey? Doesn’t that move around…like, the team stores it somewhere and then has to give it back? Isn’t that how it works? I dunno…but I do have to say…if one does take it home…you might have to store it on top of the roof – display it like holiday decor, but year round?

      Hi Sandi, I did wonder if it’s passed around or even stored somewhere safe as it seems way too big to keep in a house.

    Imagine someone winning it four times like Messi or Ronaldo usually do!

      It is, Luisa, way too big to show off in your home. 🙂
