Think we can pool $5.25 million, gang?

I say we should open up a Soccer Board Hall of Fame and Museum.

Our main attraction: LINK

A pure gold replica of the Barcelona forward's left foot, valued at $5.25 million, was unveiled Wednesday in Tokyo. The foot was created by Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka to commemorate the soccer player's achievements.

"It's exceptional. You can see each line in the foot," said Messi's brother, Rodrigo. "It's an impressive piece of work."

The jeweler said he cast Messi's foot in Spain at the end of 2012.

"We loved the sound of making the 'golden left foot,' and it being gold, it was our goal to make the project of recreating Messi's left foot a reality," said Masakazu Tanaka, president of the company that made the piece.

The foot will go on sale on Thursday, with an endorsement from the Leo Messi Foundation, which helps children at risk around the world.

Or maybe a smaller amount of cash?

Other golden artifacts going on sale are Messi's golden footprint worth $94,500 and the "Golden Foot Mini," which is half the size of the actual golden foot, worth $42,000.

You could probably buy the rights to the ACTUAL US Soccer Hall of Fame (and reopen it) for a fraction of that.

But we want stuff other than US Soccer, right?

I will not donate a cent to this project until it is assured that we will get a golden replica of of a nude Stu Hawk. I also think it would be a good idea for a nude replica of Alex Morgan. You know, for the losers that don't love guys.

You can start a Louisiana soccer hall of fame for pretty cheap. How much does a Jason Kreis game-used jersey go for on Ebay?

Shit, for $5.25 million, I could pay for sex with Stu and Alex many times over.

Looks like a size 9 foot. I'll buy some gold spray paint and someone can donate a left boot.

That reminds me: do you think his boots are one size too small?
