SI's most Intriguing Sports Figures....

Postby Kingctb27 » Sat Aug 13, 2005 1:13 pm

I found this pretty interesting. Thought I would pass it along....

How do Bonds and T.O. not make this list though. :-? I kept waiting for them to be 1 and 2, but they arn't there.

I thought AI should have been higher, but that's just me.

Thoughts?

I don't really understand their criteria for "intriguing." I agree with AI, Bowman, Farve, Rodman and some others, but then some I just don't get. I don't know if I put Barkley number 1. Being loud yet entertaining doesn't really do it for me. Same for George Foreman - he just seems like a big dumb happy puppy.

Good point about Bonds, but I don't see it with T.O. Maybe if he were as talented as Jerry Rice, but he's just a punk when it comes down to it.

"Intriguing" is also not the word I'd use for Kournikova. "Smokin", "fine," "bangin", maybe. ;-D

Nice pic of Kournikova in there. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Picabo Street?? If you were going to include a skier how about Tomba La Bomba? That guy is as arrogant as Rickey Henderson and has slept with half of the models in Europe.

Alberto Tomba. Now that's a skiier I can admire.

"I used to have a wild time with three women until 5 a.m., but I am getting older. In the Olympic Village here, I will live it up with five women, but only until 3 a.m."
