View Full Version : Go Phillies! Which bag is right for us? (Humor)

As a long suffering Philadelphia fan, I raise a glass to our World Champion Phillies!

Now here's a semi-relevant tongue-in-cheek kind of question in the spirit of "what's the right bag for me?": which Tom Bihn bag is appropriate for transporting the trophy?

Here are the specs, from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Series_Trophy):

"The current trophy, which was redesigned slightly in 1999 and made by Tiffany & Co., is 24 inches tall, excluding the base, and 11 inches around. It weighs approximately 30 pounds and is made of sterling silver. The trophy features 30 gold-plated, hand-furled flags, one for each of the Major League teams, which rise above an arched silver ox baseball with latitude and longitude lines that symbolize the world. The baseball also contains 24-karat vermeil baseball stitches. The baseball itself weighs over 10 pounds. The base contains an inscription and the signature of the commissioner. It has an estimated value of $15,000. It was presented for the first time at the conclusion of the 2000 World Series, which was won by the New York Yankees."

I'm feeling like the Smart Alec, the Brain Bag, and the Super Ego are logical choices... but wouldn't a large Cafe bag be more appropriate to pull it out and show to friends? Hmmm....

Thoughts and comments? Anyone? Help us here... we've waited 25 years since our last victory... we don't know how to deal with these situations!<Grin!>

30 pounds! You'd definitely want one of our backpacks with their extra-comfortable backpack straps. Or a shoulder bag with the Absolute strap. :)
