Default 26-Foot-Tall Lombardi Trophy To Be Placed Inside Heinz Field

26-Foot-Tall Lombardi Trophy To Be Placed Inside Heinz Field
http://www.wpxi.com/sports/19872377/detail.html

PITTSBURGH -- Contemporary Design out of West Newton, PA has teamed up with the Super Steelers to build a larger than life tribute to the 2008 Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

The company is hard at work building a replica of the 2008 Lombardi trophy that stands nearly 26 feet tall.

Construction of the trophy is in the final stages of completion.

The trophy will be installed in the Great Hall in Heinz Field in mid July.

I love it.

There's already 5 other huge Lombardi shaped trophy cases in the Great Hall. This is just for #6......which I expected them to do.

I would like to see them put six 40' trophies around the outside of the stadium. Just so the visiting team knows what they are dealing with when they get there. But space them to have room for at least 2 more.

That is a nice shot. I go all the time and never think to do that angle. I'll have to put the camera on widescreen and get a shot of all six
