Title: 5 Favourite Athletes
Post by: Nik the Trik on July 30, 2017, 02:29:54 PM
So this was going around Twitter and thought it'd be a fun off-season thing to kick around:


So here are mine:

1. Cal Ripken
2. Mats Sundin
3. Lebron James
4. Mario Lemieux
5. Roy Halladay

The fifth spot was tough. Wendel/Hasek/Potvin/Pudge/Bolt all considered.

Cal Ripken and Roy Halladay are both up there for me too. Such talented, classy players.
I'll take Dan Marino, Michael Jordan and Alexander Mogilny to finish the list off.

I don't know why but I'm a bit surprised to see so many Sundin fans!
