What a Time …

When it comes to Tiger, when will we stop saying: Unbelievable?

That’s what I asked myself – and many of my friends – after Tiger jammed a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to force at 18-hole playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

What a time we’ve lived in, one of my boys said to me today. Both of us – in our early to mid 50s, respectively, – been able to witness Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Tony Dungy and even Barak Obama.

not to mention the next tier: Kobe Bryant. OJ Simpson (the football player), Dr. J, Emmitt Smith, Barry Bonds (pre steroids), Martina Navratilova, Joe Montana, David Beckham, Bird/Magic, John McEnroe,Tom Brady,Roger Clemens (pre-lying), Wayne Gretzky, Billie Jean King, Annika Sorenstam …

What a time…

Did I leave anyone out?

    Yes, you did leave someone out! Tony Dorsett!!!!

  2. You left out many. Ever heard of Jim Brown? Ever heard of Bill Russell, Jack Johnson, or Joe Louis?

    How about Pete Sampras, Rod Laver, and Bjorn Borg in tennis?

    How can you be lulled to sleep by the media you represent and leave Hank Aaron off any list?! Check his stats!
