Fun Facts about Milwaukee's Bud Selig Statue

 

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4897641

Other fun facts about the statue:

-They also plan to use the statue as a defensive replacement for Matt Gamel in tight games

-Selig will be depicted wearing one of his trademark Men's Warehouse 3 button suits, but with his shirt untucked

-The statue will be concrete so as not to distract Prince Fielder, since bronze looks too much like chocolate wrapped in foil


-In the statue Bud will be depicted as 350 pounds, so as not to freak out any Brewers fans with his "emaciated 200 lb frame"

- There was debate as to whether it should be in the stadium or a local park, but they called it a tie and are putting it in the  mIles of glorious revenue generating parking lots

-The statue will open the season in Japan, at night to reflect Bud's legacy. 

-Additionally, when asking for a budget, the artist was told he could spend as much as he wanted

-If someone is bitten by a dog near the statue, the statue will always side with the owner

-When you pull his arms it will dispense beer and cheese respectively from Bud's mouth (I made that  one up, that would be cool)
