Greg Wyshynski has an even better idea:
Since we're on the topic of racing presidents and giant sausage, is there a tradition like this can be started in the NHL? Some teams have fans or workers race against the team mascot during intermissions, but can we get an oversized Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash somehow involved in Nashville?
This obviously raises the question of what oversized fake dead celebrities could skate during the intermissions at Thrashers games. What has Atlanta given the world? Seems like everyone worth a damn has come from Macon or Athens or Savannah, for some reason.
Okay, I've got it. Bobby Jones hits a golf ball off of Margaret Mitchell's giant head, which in turn richochets off Martin Luther King's podium, and ends up in W.E.B. DuBois' gaping mouth.
Or, including live oversized fake celebrities on ice: Neal Boortz and Lil Jon and Young Jeezy fight a chair-throwing Spike Lee (went to Morehouse, he did).
