The Agony of Defeat

The Sports Museum of America opened last May. In February it closed its doors. In April the fallout was explained in the Wall Street Journal.

Sports Museum of America: May 2008 - February 2009

There are many much more interesting things to do in New York than look at sports artifacts, so this really is no loss to the city. Though it is a shame that the window display featuring a very realistic statue of fat man sitting on a bar stool with his butt crack exposed was displaced by this museum. That display endured for years, while this sorry sports museum lasted 9 months.
