SI's most Intriguing Sports Figures....

Postby Minor League Skilz » Sat Aug 13, 2005 4:07 pm

I am not sure if I have ever heard Picaboo talk, so the whole intriguing thing escapes me. If her name was Mary is she making this list???

Even Tony Hawk. Great story, he basically made skateboarding a sport but does anyone but skaters and video game players really care about Tony Hawk? I think he just filled the X Games quota for this list.

I would drop Magic down a bit too. People care about him and he has an entertaining personality to go with his amazing contributions to the game of basketball, but s he that mcuh more intriguing than Jordan? Why? Is it the TV show, the movie theaters, or battling HIV? Anything Jordan does still makes the news, so I think he could make this list.

SI should make a list of athlete guys would want to trade places with. Base it on money, fame, quality of life, and quantity of world class tail. ;-D

I agree that Anna is smokin', but that is about it.

My list by sport, I don't pay much attention to some sports so I'll leave them off.

Baseball - Barry Bonds
Love him or hate him there is something about him that always seems to make me curious about what he is really like.

Football - Randy Moss
I read an SI article (at least I think it was SI) on him awhile back that put the guy in a very different light than what is often protrayed by the media.

Boxing - Iron Mike
Everything about the guy is just odd.

Basketball - Iverson
SI actually got one right on their list.

Golf - Vijay
The guy can be Jekyl and Hyde with his mannerisms on the course.

Tennis - Anna Kournikova
For some reason she always seems to catch my interest...

On my list, I'd put Daly in instead of Singh.

Same here, but I can't figure out why........ :-?

:-b

Disagree about Iverson though. When he's on the tube, I change the channel. :-/
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.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

The words of Max Kellerman on ATH "you don't diss Allen Iverson and not get muted". ;-) ;-D
