If you haven't gotten a chance yet to see the newly opened Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial situated along the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, you should.

We had the opportunity to check out the 30 foot masterpiece last week, at night, as well as a few events from the week, despite the initial dedication ceremony being postponed due to Hurricane Irene.

The monument is absolutely phenomenal.

Here are a few pics of the monument.

A great piece of work for a great man honoring his legacy and his vision for a better world for all people.

Although Dr. King didn't play sports, he supported quite a few sports figures and events in his time.
