I loved the trip to the University of Miami Athletics Hall of Fame so much that I thought you would all like to see some other pictures of stunning memorabilia.

The Seminole war canoe is perhaps the greatest sports trophy EVER!

The best trophy in all the Hall was incredibly one that was over 250 years old and not even kept  behind a glass cabinet.
 
The Seminole War Canoe was the highly sought after trophy for the winner of the  Miami v Florida Gators annual matchup.
 
In the  1990s the rivalry deteriorated and Miami U put the  full size canoe into the Hall of Fame.
 
It wasn’t until a few years ago when the NCAA Football computer game started featuring the prize trophies for the winner of rivalry matches that the University of Florida remembered that they fought for the old canoe.
 
The U have said that they will put the canoe ‘back in play’ providing the Gators agree to an annual matchup.
 
Simply awesome – what an amazing artefact.
