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.

1. Is it because he could not hear as well as other pitchers? Who was the best pitcher in Gibson's ear?

2. Will the Cubs win a World Series in the next few ears?

3. Will U2 fans still be bitching about setlists ears from now?

1. The little things Khan puts into Chekov's ear also wound up in Gibson's ear at one point.

2. Chicago plays in the Midwest, there's a lot of corn in the Midwest, thus a lot of ears of corn in the Midwest, so, no.

3. Yes.

And then you could say something like "well, I've been calling it Grid Iron my whole life because that's simply what it's referred to here as. Please find some way to forgive this truly horrid and evil transgression".

I actually have great respect for sport, be it known to me or foreign, but when someone of Madforit's.......stature, let's say, takes time to instruct me, my reactions will be poor, at best. I know damn well that it's referred to as football everywhere but here.

Which is strange cause they play it with a soccer ball not a football.
