    Hall of Fame Certs Collectors - What should we call them?????

    I am sooo sick of these Hall of Fame Inductees. They say 20, 30, etc HOF inductee on their Web Sites and advertisement. This is simply a "Pay to Play" deal. One guy says he is a 38 time HOF inductee. I figure each one sets him back about 300 bucks (dinner, tux, gas, airfare). Thats 38 * 300 = $11,400 at minimum. What a waste....

    It is always the hall mark of someone who needs some sort of affermation that they are indeed special, one of a kind and unique.

    They should have to fight a tournament for those awards. Honorary Black Belts, Shihans and Sokes ...Oh My.

    It really makes me cringe. What have they done that actually contributes to something that should be rewarded.

    A Sports Hall of Fame is real, and a committee needs to determine who goes, but the Intructor of the Year should have produced the best student of the year. I hope you get something good that sticks, sempaiman.

    Perhaps they need a tee-shirt reading-

    "Congratulations! You are unique! Just like the hundreds of other idiots that payed for this bullshit!"
