well, since we're mentioning other sports:

Baseball: 80's - Tom Brookens; 90's - Cecil Fielder; 00's - Magglio

Football: 80's - Drew Pearson; 90's - Barry 00's - Nobody

Basketball: 80's - Dennis Rodman (Pistons version;) Basketball has sucked since 1992 so no others...

Golf - Is that a sport?

Favorite NON-Red Wing - Joe Sakic

Hockey: Steve Yzerman
Baseball: Don Mattingly
Football: none, I don't watch it
Basketball: I grew up in Chicago, so who do you think? Once Jordan left the Bulls, I stopped watching the sport. I couldn't even tell you who won the NBA Finals this season.

If you turned on a TV all summer, you would know the Lakers won it... The media was on that like white on rice.

I watch plenty of TV. However none of the TV I watch would be discussing that. I don't watch ESPN or any of its subsidiary networks anymore, so unless MLB Network was suddenly going to talk about the Lakers, I'd have no way of knowing what they did or did not do. I follow baseball and hockey, that's it. Unless what I'm watching sports-wise talks about either of those sports, I'm not interested.

I had an insane crush on Jeff Chadwick. In fact, I had hamsters named Jeff and Barry, but Barry turned out to be a girl, so she was re-named Berry and placed in a separate cage.

Never followed baseball or basketball.

All Red Wings, all the time growing up. Didn't know jack s*** about any of the other Detroit sports teams until I moved back here before high school in 2003.

I have always been into the tough guys. Probie, Kocur, Shanny (sort-of), and Mac.

Ofcourse I love the Y but thats what it has been for me. With so many years w/o a tough guy I fell in love with the two way skill of Pasha. Then he whopped Roberts ass in '08 and that was all I needed.
