QUOTE (WpgMikos @ October 29, 2009 - 03:18PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Hockey: Wayne Gretzky/Dale Hawerchuk & Steve Yzerman
Baseball: Tom Henke/Joe Carter/Roy Halladay (only sports team in Toronto I follow)
Football: Warren Moon/Doug Flutie
Basketball: Karl Malone/Clyde Drexler/Charles Barkley & Magic Johnson

Tom Henke reference.....what the hell, no Junior Felix? They used to always kick my Orioles' asses biggrin.gif

BTW I'm loving all of the cal Ripken references too smile.gif
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

My favorite players weren't necessarily the best players when I was a kid.

Hockey: Bob Probert. Bob was a bad man, and he had a little skill as well. It was easy to like McCarty when he came along, because he kind of reminded me of Probert.

Baseball: Dave Kingman. He would either strike out, or hit a home run. Either way, he was going to swing as hard as he could in the process and fall down half the time.

Basketball: Larry Bird. He looked like a dork, couldn't jump, couldn't run, but he was still unstoppable.

Football: Probably Billy Sims. Barry was Barry, and he was amazing, but I'm still partial to Billy Sims.

Hockey: Steve Yzerman, Brett Hull, Al MacInnis

Football: Steve Young, Randall Cunningham

Baseball: Cal Ripkin Jr, Greg Maddox

I have, and always have had zero interest in Basketball, so that category doesn't apply to me.


In memory of Steve Shoen, Rest in peace.
