Many of you have read my idea about decorating a wall in a sport-themed basement using framed jerseys of players. Once and for all, we shall settle the appropriate jerseys and players to be represented.
In order to do this efficiently, I will list the top 20, and will follow 21-40 in one week. In addition to the players entered, I will also the reason for including them. Feel free to offer suggestions, as I am not fluent in remembering everyone's jersey numbers.
1. Warren Moon Was anyone else ever famous wearing the #1?
2. Derek Jeter I really need ideas
3. Babe Ruth But that would be tough considering my Red Sox Nature
4. Adam Vinatieri/Bobby Orr Who's the bigger legend in Boston?
5. Nomar Garciaparra Can't discount how good he was with the Sox for 4 years
6. Bill Russell Celtic Pride
7. John Elway 7 is a good number, but who's better than Elway? Too many Yankees to include Mickey Mantle
8. Cal Ripken Jr. More consecutive games than Eric Dickerson's rushing record
9. Ted Williams The greatest number in baseball history
10. Pele Greatest soccer player... only soccer player on my wall
11. Mark Messier Who else carries 11?
12. Tom Brady Obvious
13. Dan Marino Arod... haha
14. Pete Rose Gambling receipt in pocket
15. Vince Carter I hate Melo
16. Joe Montana Best Ever
17. John Havlicek Celtic Great
18. Peyton Manning Best non-playoff QB ever
19. No clue I don't know anything about Johnny U, who can I put here!?
20. Barry Sanders My favorite player ever
So thats the beginning of it. I need ideas if you can help me with #1, 4, 11, 15, and 19
