Gentlemen, as you know by now, the DBFA trophy has been ordered and is on the way. While I am pleased with the design that President Duffy went with, I am frustrated that such a fine trophy will be in the MGL's possession for the better part of a year. "The Trophy of Versailles", as it will be named, is awarded to the winner of the "World War', the annual week 17 DBFA championship game between the winners of the OiL and the MGL. I let the league down this year by losing the World War and, thus, the Trophy of Versailles. I wish it it were on my mantle and the OiL's name was etched into its side. Let us not allow this to happen two years in a row, however. The TofV will transfer ownership after the 2011 season and everyone of you OklahomIraqis must work to make that happen.
Justin C. Cliburn, Commissioner
From your DBFA President, Adam F. Duffy:
Say hello to my lil friend.
You've already been introduced if you listen to the show. This is the "Trophy of Versailles" that will be awarded to the winner of the World War each year.
I love this trophy. I ordered it this evening. The details on the faceplate and name plates will be introduced when I get my hands on this thing. As President, I'll bestow this upon Josh Hastings' ThroatPunchers...take pictures...and get them posted on this site.
This beautiful item cost 130 bucks basically. Any help with the cost would be VERY appreciated. You can simply go to our DBFA paypal account and make your contribution. It's under firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope each league like this masterpiece, and I hope everyone works their asses off trying to be the proud owner of this for a year.
Hats off to Cafe Press for helping our leagues become so much richer and more sophisticated with this awesome display....job well done!
I know I'm excited to have this next to the OiL trophy for an entire year after I win both in 2011!
Statement for the Press
"I'm hoping to develop some real rivalries here...not smack talk rivalries, but those that are a product of real sweat and blood...games nearly won or lost that develop a respectful hatred of having to play another team. I want to become the most hated team in the OIL, but in a cool way. I think with Josh Hastings moving to the MGL, Justin C. Cliburn clearly wears that on his sleeve right now. I want to beat the Arrogant Americans more than any other team this year. Justin, prepare for war this season. "
My initial reply was this: You may have won the battle . . . wait, I actually beat you twice last year, but anyways . . . you've certainly started a war. BRING IT, MOTHERDUFFER!
My only statement as of press time is that the Arrogant Americans are 4-1 against The Hangovers over four seasons. Scoreboard, bitch.
