8. Doug Flutie (Boston College)
Important lesson for sports teams everywhere: it never hurts to immortalize a famous player’s greatest and most memorable play.
If you’re doing a statue of Joe Carter, it should be of him jumping up and down on the base paths after hitting the World Series-ending home run in 1993.
If you’re doing a statue of Bobby Orr, it should be of him flying through the air after scoring a goal in the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals. (I am foreshadowing, here.)
And if you’re doing a statue of Doug Flutie, it should be of him winding up to hurl the most famous Hail Mary pass in the history of football. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about…look it up.)
