The Heritage Cup Is Finally Complete
So today Sarah and I went to pick up the Heritage Cup from Bennett Awards in El Dorado, CA. I plotted a beautiful and relaxing drive through the foothills, and somehow managed to place the twin silos of Rancho Seco prominently in it.
The Cup is solid bronze, cast in the lost wax method, and the base is stained wood. In total it is just over 28 inches tall, weights around 36 lbs, and the cup has a diameter of 9 inches. I'll be traveling with it to Seattle for the game between the Sounders and the Earthquakes on Saturday. The game should be televised on Comcast's Sacramento sports network. I'll be holding it up in the front row of the visitors supporters section. Hopefully I'll have interesting press photos to post here when I get back.
