Small thing re: Randy.

Of all the Hall Bronzes. IMO Randy's is the most amazing. Just a great likeness of a giant among men.

Cheers, BostonTim

I've been to the HOF and wasn't terribly impressed with some of the bronze work. Most were good but many bore varying degrees of resemblance to the guys they were portraying. To put it kindly.

But, Tim is correct. Moss' likeness is spot on. As good or better than any of them.

In fact, it's so good that I wondered if it was done using a 3D scan and some sort of CNC machine that could make perfect molds for the bronze. Gotta be something like that or the sculptor is off-the-charts good.

I thought Bill Parcells' bust was really awful. Didn't look like him at all.

Randy's was done by Blair Buswell, the NFL's lead HOF sculptor who has been doing them for 35 years. He was featured on an E:60 episode 5 or 6 days ago. He does them by hand. Randy's is great but he also did Ray Lewis's which is pretty bad. Interesting guy - he played football at BYU with Danny Ainge and Jim McMahon. Bill Walsh saw his work and that's how he got started with the NFL.

I've never been, but I hope the bronze work isn't as bad as this bust that went viral last year after being unveiled at a Portuguese airport (now named after Cristiano Ronaldo)

Yes it is, furrowed brow and all. Dead serious and determined Randy.

That's the word that was used when it was unveiled. There was such an outcry that the statue was eventually removed.

Surely sculptors know to follow a key rule? Never show an open mouth and teeth.
