    Default Iconic Sports Prizes

    I was driving along the other day, and got to thinking of the many really famous, iconic sports prizes there have been. The ones that have transcended their sports and are known by the 'guy in the street', or have become symbols greater than the victory they represent.

    I thought of a few examples (in no particular order)

    - an Olympic Gold Medal
    - The World Heavyweight Champions belt (if such a unified thing still existed)
    - The football World Cup
    - The Superbowl
    - The Ryder Cup
    - The Americas Cup
    - The 6 nations rugby Grand Slam

    Anybody got any more good ones, or wish to take issue with my examples?
    If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?

    By football Wordl Cup you mean FIFA World Cup right.

    If so I would say thats above all.

    Then theres PGA Tour, Wimbledon & MLB World Series

    cc to sobo (the hockey ref) and beds for the f1 ref. The nonly thing about the F1 champion os that there's no name for the trophey. Maybe they could call it the Senna Trophey or Graham Hill Cup or soemthing like that.

    yeah, but don't you think the FIA WC lacks some flare? It needs a truly symbolic name. Yours will work. Or how 'bout The rules don't apply to Ferrari and Michael the Cheat?

    If it's kimi and michael next year kimi will destroy him.
