No Willie Mays on either list? Heresy!
The guy from Ball Ground, GA calls me dumb. Yet I have enough knowledge not to live in Ball Ground, GA.

So WWJ, is it worse for a Giants fan to see their team fall so far or to see the Dodgers in 1st place?

Elvis should get in the baseball hall of fame ahead of Pete Rose. While Elvis may have had trouble turning the double play at 2nd base (with Jerry Lee Lewis at shortstop) at least he didn't bet against his own team.
DeLaSalle High in Concord, CA won 151 football games in a row, from 1992-2003.

And for a season: Misty May and Kerri Walsh went 39-0 in 2003.

The player who made the Dallas Cowboys exciting in the early 70's (when they became "America's Team"):

Bullet Bob Hayes

And Tony Dorsett should be on everyone's list ahead of Michael Irvin.

I think the quote was supposed to be "Kanye West is the Mario Mendoza of music."

look that one up!

San Diego. You know you won't win a championship, but on the other hand you have the best climate in the entire country. And have you seen the gals that go to USD? Great googly, moogly!
That is true...until you try EVERY OTHER BEER IN THE WORLD (except Schlitz).

Posted Wednesday February 20, 2013, About: Top 10 sporting moments that broke your heart..
Neither one of you included the 1994 MLB strike. It actually was the lowest point in all of sports history.
Face it, there are probably only 2-3 guys in the whole NFL that would start over Kapernik.
and the rankings on Feb. 4:
Kapernik and everyone else behind him. 49ers win the Super Bowl by 14+
Frankenstein style: Head-Andrew Luck, eyes-Ted Williams, torso-Seau, right arm-John Elway, left arm-Steve Carlton, hands-Jerry Rice, legs-Usain Bolt, heart-Peyton Manning, feet-Pele
Posted Tuesday December 04, 2012, About: The Heisman. Who should win it?
It should be Marquise Lee, perhaps the greatest college receiver ever. However, will he get any first or second place votes? Nope.

Also a good pick, but it really should be...Buster Posey.
Posted Tuesday November 13, 2012, About: That's a clown award, bro.
Both had good seasons but hardly the type of season that ought to generate an award.
Mike Trout showed us what a ROY performance should be.
Posted Monday October 29, 2012, About: Wilt Chamberlain is better than Bill Russell.
Wilt was the best there ever was, ergo Wilt.Russell (or Jordan).

The "not a team player" is a fallacy that CJH exposed by pointing out that Wilt rarely had the supporting cast he needed to win championships. It's the same reason why so many people don't rank Maravich as one of the all-time best guards, he was but never had a supporting cast.
Posted Thursday October 25, 2012, About: "I'm as happy as a little girl" MLB.. 2012 post season heroes..
Especially for us Giants fans.
Down 2 to the Reds? No problem.
Down 3 to 1 to the Cards? Piece of cake, we'll just outscore them 20-1.
Facing Verlander? Anyone remember the All-Star game, deja vu.
Giants over the Tigers in 6 or less.

No but Bain did. It won't get fixed until Batman rises again.
