What??? I'd say Bo Jackson. The man was unreal.


In all seriousness he would certainly get my vote.

Nov. 30, 1987 - A month into his "hobby" as a professional football player, Los Angeles Raider running back Bo Jackson had a ball on his 25th birthday. In one of the most scintillating performance ever on "Monday Night Football," Jackson, who says his main job is as an outfielder for the Kansas City Royals, set a Raiders record by running for 221 yards and scoring three touchdowns in a 37-14 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Jackson led off the Raiders' 20-point second quarter by scoring on a 14-yard run when safety Kenny Easley fell down attempting to tackle him. Later in the period, Jackson swerved around left end and set a Raiders record for longest run from scrimmage by racing 91 yards for a touchdown. Unable to stop his 225-pound frame in the end zone, he continued right into the locker room tunnel in the Kingdome.

Bo's third touchdown came in the third quarter when he literally ran over linebacker Brian Bosworth on a two-yard burst on one of his 18 carries. :-D

After Jackson's impressive game, Seahawks wide receiver Steve Largent said, "I think he should stick to baseball."

Gladiator vs Die Hard....my head would explode trying to decide which one is better...

Die Hard. Moving on...


I dunno....Gladiator is pretty bad a$$, in a good way. Any time either one of those movies is on TNT, I can't watch them unedited so I bust out the DVD.

This could be a pretty good bracket, there's a half dozen in my head that would be great matchups. Pulp Fiction vs Caddyshack.....Slapshot vs Raiders of the Lost Ark...Godfather vs Shawshank...

I'd take Die Hard because there's not much downtime once it gets going.

Gladiators' weakness is the long spans of movie without decapitations.

Jason Bourne vs. Other Assassin, The Bourne Ultimatum.

Wolverine vs. Deathstrike, X2.
Gandalf vs. the Balrog, Lord of the Rings.

I know I'm missing plenty of others...

thats a silly one. it would boil down to whether golf or tennis is really a sport, and most of the "Best" are fairly obvious. kinda like "who's now?". :-P
