10. CFL Grey Cup
10. Wimbleton (Don't know the offical name for it and don't care to look it up either)
11. NBA - I'd might rank it higher if I knew what it was called.


Ok..
Good list..
I like a lot of your points and what you bring to the table..

HOWEVER..
You should have said heisman..
I left that out on purpose to see if you would pick it up..

Also..
Sorry folks..
The World Cup soccer trophy is a bigger deal than the awesome Super Bowl..
It just is..
You can't even begin to debate it..
Plus our trophy is cooler..
Yours is silver but ours is gold:)
See what I mean..

Wimbledon is a bigger deal than the masters..
I don't like the colour green anyways..
How are you suppose to flirt with a girl in a green jacket?


Thank-you! Glad you liked it!!!

The Heisman is a memorial award and not a trophy. The Heisman Statue is given to the award winner for most outstanding player in college football each season. The lazy media has shortened referrals of the award to Heisman Trophy. For sake of argument, we'll say it's just a trophy for a moment. I think the Heisman has lost it's importance over the years. It's now just a popularity contest and not a true reflection of the best player in college football. It also means very little in determining NFL success. See Tebow, Tim. So I didn't miss it. I excluded it from my list for the reason I just stated. Plus, it's not on your list either and the after the fact claim that you did it on purpose is very lame.

World Cup Soccer is NOT bigger than the SB or Stanley Cup!!! Just isn't! Tiffany's makes the SB trophy. Can't get cooler than that!!!

You want a green jacket but you hate the color green. Which is it? Make up your mind already!

I think Tiger Woods can tell us all about flirting with girls while wearing the Green Jacket. It didn't seem to hamper him at all!


The problem with Olympic gold..
Here is the dirty secret..
Some of the events are virtually meaningless..
Tennis Olympics is kind of stupid..
If you win the Olympics.. You get the same number of points as delray..
And no one cares about delray..

Stanley cup?
Really?
Everyone knows Olympic hockey is bigger..
You should have said Olympic hockey..
Now it looks like your a car salesman..
Calm down..
When I first came to the states in 98..
Hockey was huge..
It was on Espn..
Now?
You can't even find a game east of my house..
USA vs Russia in 2 days!!!
Now that's a big deal..
I would pay 50 bucks to watch that..
I think Russians are very attractive..
But I want to get the W!

Good luck you are going to need it..


No idea who delray and don't see what points have to do with an Olympic medal.

A Gold medal is important to the person(s) who win one and the country they represent or no one would care about medal counts. Whether the sport is important or even exists outside the Olympics doesn't much matter. A Gold medal validates all those years and years of hard work it takes just to get to the Olympics.

Olympic hockey is included in Olympic Gold by definition. Now that all the NHL players participate in the Olympics you can't say one is bigger than the other. Back in the day when it was amateurs from the US and Canada going against what was really a Pro Soviet team (and the Soviet Bloc countries too), beating the Soviets or a Soviet Bloc country was hugh. I think it's very simular to the NBA and Olympic basketball. Every team in the Olympics has at least 1 or 2 NBA players on it.

That said, the Stanley Cup goes all over the world after the finals each year. It's already been to Russia many times. Your name is etched on it forever. That's hard to beat, so I put it slightly above the Olympics.


I'll take all the luck I can get!!! GL to you to!

The World Cup of soccer has a trophy?

Froggie's gonna get splattered on this one.

Difference between coveted and harder to get.

Entire Counties fight over the Soccer stuff, just because they dont have cable.

I just sent for a framed picture of Denver's new Lamar Hunt trophy.

Nope. It's an award not a trophy.

I'm going to attack his Olympic gold in my 3rd..
Not every Olympic gold is a big deal..
No one cares about Olympic gold in tennis..

Heisman Trophy is a colloquialism for the Heisman Memorial Award used cause the press is lazy or wants to save print space (like that really matters anymore). I'll say why it's not the most coveted in my 2nd argument.

Lord Stanley's Cup is obviously the most prestigious trophy in all of sport. It's the most difficult to win and having your name etched on it immortalizes you in the sporting world.Nothing else even comes close.

Boom.

LOL . yes , yes it is. Mind numbingly boring to watch , but it is a sport. Also the place where seemingly catastrophic, writhing in agony injuries are healed 2 minutes later.

And who says medical care hasn't made huge advances over the years? Especially after the penalty kick is awarded.
