Our humble cartoonist, Kurt Snibbe, wants to know which newsmaker deserves to be immortalized for his or her recent actions in the sports world.
We invite you, dear readers, to select the subject of the Fictional Statue of the Week from the news of the sports world. Please tell us in the comments section of this blog entry who deserves the statue of the week and why. Suggestions that provide a design inspiration from the real world, such as the Chicago Picasso, Spirit of Detroit or even the Statue of Liberty, are more likely to be chosen.
On Friday, Snibbe will immortalize the winning reader by illustrating our favorite suggestion.
So thanks in advance for playing along ... and for doing our jobs for us! Feel free to browse the previous Fictional Sports Statues of the Week below to get those inspirational juices flowing.
