Well theres too many to mention, but i have a few in no particular order:

Dale Earnhardt
Michael Jordan
Walter Payton
Emmitt Smith
Troy Aikman
Dan Marino
John McEnroe
Brett Favre

I know that is a big list, but I can't help it. I loved Earnhardt, and miss watching him. I wish Dan Marino would have got a ring, he's had more 300 yard passing games than I've had speeding tickets so he deserved a superbowl ring! Emmitt Smith is my favorite player alive though, and he outshines the rest of his teammates by far.

Ok here goes...

Might I remind you that Mark made a chanceless 126 and partnered Steve to the tune of 231 runs in that same match...arguably it was Mark's free scoring that broke the back of the windies attack and allowed steve to stay on to his 200.

Quote:
Mark - 200 times dismissed carelessly, can't get past 137,
His highest Test score is 153 not out, and for all the times hes got out carelessly, hes never got out in the 90s anywhere near as many times as Steve...indeed when Mark Waugh makes a 100, Australia hardly lose, I cant remember the last time he got 100 in a losing Aussie side.

Quote:
avg less than 40,
7,833 test runs at an average of 42.57 and a strike rate of 52.13 <-----that makes him a match winner

His One Day Record is waaaaaaaaay better than Steve's

Quote:
twice the ability of Steve. What a waste.
The twins are both as talented as each other, Mark is just more elegant. Steve can murder any attack when he wants to, but he changed his method to suit Test cricket...Mark just bats, no matter what sort of cricket hes playing. Perhaps it might be fair to say that Mark has half the cricketing tact of Steve, rather than twice the talent.

Can you imagine what the Olympics would have been like if John was Jamie Sale's partner for the pairs competition?

JM: ARE YOU OUTTA YER F#$%!% MIND!!!
JUDGE: Point deduction, McEnroe/Sale.
JM: YOU'RE F!@##!@% BLIND. WE'RE BETTER THAN THOSE COMMIE BASTARDS. HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT???? * slams his bouquet on the boards repeatedly*
Sale: Shut up, John, this isn't Forrest Hills!
JP: Screw you, they shouldn't let women in the pairs competition!
*cameras pan the audience to find Jimmy Conners pissing himself with laughter*

English footballing great Peter Beardsley. Although very ugly, one of the greatest players Newcastle has produced and a lovely fella too!

Mario Lemieux (see the spinninghead's post)
Martin Brodeur (2 Cups with the Devils, and he's one of the nicest people in professional sports)
Mike Piaza (he's given me my best NY Mets' memories over the last several years)
Keith Hernandez (good player for 80s Mets... the Seinfield episode put him over the top)
MJ
Goran Ivanisevic (2001 Wimbledon Champion has a nice ring to it!)
Alberto Tomba (his training strategy at the Olympics as he got older says it all, "instead of training with 3 women till 5am, I train with 5 women till 3am")
