You have until Halloween to cast your vote:
And just to clarify things:
1. No, I do not have a picture of the Bobby Bourne Memorial Trophy.
2. There was a Bobby Bourne hockey player who played for the New York Islanders in the 1970's and 1980's, but I'm not sure if this trophy is named for him. I don't think it is because it doesn't make sense to name a football trophy after a hockey player, and if it was awarded since 1955, I don't think the Bobby Bourne hockey player was famous enough to have a trophy named after him back then.
