I said it on LiveJournal and I'll say it here:

If he took time to look outside the US, he'd see the U2 of sports - the New Zealand All Blacks. Heck, the challenge is for U2 to be the New Zealand All Blacks of music, consistently great for one hundred years.

He is wrong about 1 thing in his article for all intensive purposes Gretzky dominated for his entire career from 1979-1999, there was no more dominant player in ice hockey. If he still played today hed still be a great player even at 45.

I thought it was a cracking article.If consistancy is the attribute that u2 are judged on then they could be equated to Coventry City Football club.CCFC are consistantly shite.

The U2 of sports?
hmmm, if it has to be a team then you cannot look beyond Manchester United.

and if it has to be an individual then there is only one sportsman who can call himself the U2 of sports.......PAOLO MALDINI!

Yes. That's the part where I thought, "Mmhmm. This guy reads Interference."

Were Manchester dominant 100 years ago? I don't know of any team that can even compare with the All Blacks' winning record. 104 years, winning 3 out of every 4 games. The All Blacks fecking rule.

So I reiterate, the challenge really is for U2 to be the All Blacks of music.

(And if it must be a person, well, there are plenty of All Blacks to choose from!)

(And I suppose I should add for those poor, deprived souls who are not familiar with the All Blacks, they are New Zealand's national rugby union team. It's all we have to be proud of, besides LOTR, Sir Edmund Hillary, and being the only non-US country to successfully defend the America's Cup.)

Um, Axver, NZ weren't the first to win the America's Cup (which now needs to be renamed). That honour went to? Let me think, ah yes, Australia!!!!

And really, what about the Wallabies or the Australian Cricket team? Much better choices.

i have a love and hate relationship with that guy

he is witty, writes great articles, and has the best articles on espn.com

but he is a patriots fan, and the patriots beat the rams in the superbowl and he has made fun of the rams ever since, and he is also a red sox fan, enough said.

plus, those little cartoon movies need to go
