Datsyuk
Barry Sanders
Albert Pujols (if they're pitching to him)

Edited to add Anthony Kim. I love the way he plays.

I'd never support Vick. Hence why I wouldn't pay the price of admission for him.

What if someone paid you more money than the value of the ticket?

The only current players I've paid to see were Datsyuk, Verlander, Ovechkin. Plus, just about any of the greats are worth it by themselves.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

kirilenko and sharapova vs. ivanovic and kournikova doubles would be unreal. id watch the crap out of that.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
