Greatest Moments in Sports
It may not have all the greatest moments in sports history but when you go from the Babe to Broadway Joe it has a ton of them. Watching this, it’s hard to believe that some people don’t like sports.
I have to believe that most of the people on the Ibang that say "soccer is not a sport" are trolling or trying to prove how American they are. But if you are serious, for some reason I picture you giving someone (maybe your wife or eldest son) a high five after you type that.
Shouldn't they remove the Lance Armstrong and Paterno win clips since since they tell us now those never happened.
I got a life boat for everyone... Most influential athlete all time. You can only bring two with you. 1. Ali 2. Jackie Robinson 3. Michael Jordan
@mightyhorserox Michael Jordan was not an athlete. He was only good in one sport. Do some reading on a guy named Jim Thorpe. Yes Jackie Robinson was a great athlete. Baseball was his weakest sport...
@Cletus from Brooklyn Michael Jordan played baseball and golf at a higher level than 95 percent of the population can dream about. I'm not here to discredit the accolades of Jim Thorpe. The guys was an amazing athlete, but the question wasn't about pure athleticism. The question relates to transcending ones sport and becoming more than an athlete. I think Jordan, Ali, Robinson, and Pele all did that. People who didn't watch the sport knew who these guys were. Having sad all that, I'm still throwing MJ the Fuck off the boat.
@K Dubya @mightyhorserox Being good in one sport means you are gifted in one discipline of Competitve sports/exercise. Jackie Robinson was a track & field star & a great basketball player in college. Multiple disciplines makes you an athlete, most scouts didn't consider Jordan a baseball prospect (never could hit that curve) & he's not even good enough to get a PGA card, no matter how mucho net he throws their way.
@mightyhorserox It's got to be four
@mightyhorserox Ali transcended his sport, so did Jackie Robinson, Jordan's out.
@mightyhorserox why Jackie Robinson? He wasn't even the first black player (contrary to popular belief)
@HummusMagnate whether or not he was the first black player in the majors is a moot point. The question is about influential athletes... thus then Jackie should and could be included. Just thought a little discussion on the topic would be cool. Not trying to change the world or anything here.
3 things: Jordan was one hell of a basketball player huh. Football used to be much tougher/better. Human beings are amazing amazing machines.
@Yuuuck Football players have never been as tough as they are now. Current players are so much stronger and faster it's scary.
Down goes Frazier! I would have liked to have seen a triumphant Mark Messier in there... sigh I miss hockey. The way those soccer players can handle the ball is mesmerizing.
@Binary Daoist Agreed, don't think I saw a Gretsky clip either but Ovechkins goal may be sickest ever!! Sigh, I miss Hockey too
@Cletus from Brooklyn Just a catch that kept the drive going so self inflicted gun shot wound could get the touchdown pass to ruin the pats perfect season. You're right, it was just a catch!?
@Cletus from Brooklyn You are correct he got cut the next season, but according to the title it just had to be a moment. I won't saying thing else. You being a Jets fan is punishment enough.
@Toin Coss is You might have a point. I didn't watch that Super Bowl (I root for the loser team in Town) but is Tyree even in the league anymore...
