Worst Statues

http://www.aol.com/video/jeanclaude-van-damme-gets-his-own-statue-in-brussels/517513534/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmaing9%7Cdaily-buzz4%7Csec5_lnk2%7C223580

This one certainly goes way up toward the top.

I would also nominate the statue of Kirby Puckett outside of Target Field - it originally looked like a bear, then they slimmed the face so that it looks 50% better, but still not much like Puckett.  (One issue they may have is their desire to capture Puckett in game 6 of the 1991 Series as he was screaming rounding the bases - the statue should have been of Puckett stading in the batter's box, smiling.  That is how everyone remembers him).

The other one - that statue of #23 outside United Center.  I had no idea that Terry Porter was a star for the Bulls at some time in his career.
