  1. I think they could find a middle ground, where the guy in the old trophy is about to kick a cob of corn.

  3. You have to admit, it is a little overkill that he's both carrying a football AND about to kick one. Just a little play I like to call The Ol' Touchfield!

  5. Looks like he's about to kick a giant coffee bean.
