Having a fantasy football trophy specifically designed for firemen has always been something that I’ve thought about.  This year it became a reality.  A few weeks ago I was contacted by a fireman down in Florida who was wondering if I could add a firefighter’s helmet to the Throwback with his engine companies number on it.  I decided to give it a shot. When it was finally completed, I was so pleased with the result that I knew I needed to add a similar helmet to the Armchair Quarterback.  Fate pushed my hand.  It was only a few days after finishing the Throwback that I received and order from a firehouse in NYC for a regular large Armchair Quarterback.  I knew it was for a firehouse because of the name they wanted engraved on the main plate.  It had both the engine and ladder company numbers.   I gave Dan, a fireman at the station, a call and asked if they’d be interested in having an Armchair Quarterback trophy with a fireman’s helmet instead of the customary leather one.  Dan was thrilled with the idea and said he’d was going to surprise his league with the new trophy.  A perk for me was the fact that I was able to arrange a day that I could hand deliver it myself to the guys at the station.  Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to visit a NYC firehouse?

It’s rare that I feel short in an environment, being that i’m 6’2″, but this was definitely one of those rare times.  Dan and a bunch of the other guys towered over me.  Dan unveiled the trophy and the guys couldn’t have been happier with the result.  The fireman’s axe next to the recliner was a small detail that they really seemed to like.  Overall  the entire experience was just as rewarding for me as it was for them.

Now I just need to get both trophies up on the site.  Thanks for the photo guys.

If you’re a firefighter and interested in either trophy contact me at Dave at FantasyTrophies.com
