Football is the greatest sport ever
closely followed by cricket

USA sports suck big time
EVEN rugby is better than American football

Cricket is massive in the Commonwealth
but recently its appeal has spread to Western Europe, Middle East, and China

As i said before Dennis Compton should be on the 'greatest' list
He was amazing at football and cricket at the highest level

Dennis Compton
Played cricket for England
5807 runs at an average of 50
17 International Hundreds and 28 50's
Has record # of centuries in an English summer
Served in the British Army in WW2
Played Football for England
Played for Arsenal and won the FA Cup and the League title

LEGEND

Fail. If you're going to post the Bergkamp goal from the 1998 WC, it absolutely must be the version with Jack van Gelder's radio call superimposed.

I will call you Irving for a few days, will that suffice?

My trip was amazing on myriad levels, thanks for asking. I'm still sort of processing it all. Hope you're well and I assume you're on the road for work?

Someone mentioned Bob Gibson earlier and my first thought was that he was not even the best pitcher of his ear. But, even Koufax, despite his being a tribe member doesn't deserve to be termed best sportsman of all time, not in my opinion. Then again, we have no established criteria so it's hard for me to suggest anyone at all. If it's sheer brilliance over a short period of time, Koufax is up there. If it's measuring you against your contemporaries, Ruth gets my vote from a baseball perspective. Also, my lack of true knowledge about sports like cricket, soccer, rugby, etc, prevents me from taking this thread too seriously. Bashing cricket and then seeing american sports get bashed just seems lame to me.

I did mention Edwin Moses 1/2 seriously. Dude won 122 straight races which boggles my mind. Eric Heiden perhaps deserves some consideration.
