That's probably all they'll ever get outside of something they might put up in Toronto some day.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Toronto's fine. That's where you'd want it to be.

SRV is also facing south.  The shadow would never be like that.  I walked past it today, it's very cool esp since I'm a huge fan.  Another thing that people don't realize is just how big he is.  Here's a photo with a life-sized human being alongside...he's got to be 8 feet+ from boots to hat.  The girl below is on the short side, as far as I can see.  

 

It's too cool to live in a town that has this...love it.

Now days that would be a player taking a flop/dive to hopefully draw a penalty.

Orr beats Blues goaltender Glenn Hall just as he's getting tripped by defenceman Noel Picard.

Bob Marley, Jamaica

 

Defaced and after cleanup.

 

Bob-Marley-Statue.jpg

 

 

Interesting fact, during the 1980s the first Bob Marley statue (shown above-left) was done by Christopher Gonzalez and was placed at the National Stadium. People hated the statue and as such pelted it with objects. It featured a “tree root had swept up from the ground to become Bob’s microphone and body” According to the gleaner August 2003 and people were saying “What?! Bab in a skirt?”
 
Due to public outcry, “that the statue did not look enough like Bob Marley,” it was hurriedly taken down and Alvin Marriot was commissioned to create the statue that is present today. This life-size statue shows the king of Reggae accurately dressed in his customary skin-tight trousers with a guitar in hand and stands in the same spot the old statue was located.
