So this is the aforementioned giant (check) list of various all time favorite people in sports.
If I eventually get around to make entries about even half of these all very deserving people I'll be satisfied, but for now here is just the list itself.
Tomorrow the goal is to have some Roddick-Federer Wimbledon final preview stuff.
Maybe some Tour de France "prologue" thoughts (it's too long to be an actual prologue) AND maybe some transfer market rambling
OR what about some Confederations Cup stuff which I spent probably way too much time posting about on my favorite sports forum.
Everyone on the list is in no particular order and especially the soccer one seems to be constantly growing while the people in a lot of other sports, sometimes obscure sports, are often various childhood heroes:
Alessando Del Piero
Gian Piero Gasperini
Julio Cesar Chavez
Marco Antonio Barrera
I feel like I've mistakenly left out a few here hmmmmm?
Gianni Bugno (of course my all time favorite everything)
Gymnastics (and this is where I lose all credibility...):
Boris Becker (a note on Boris the commentator. I watched some of the Tennis today on BBC instead of the danish broadcast and it was my first experience with Boris Becker the announcer and sadly it wasn't a positive experience.
On court Boris had the ability to always come up with an ace when most needed.
In the booth Boris has the ability to at all times say whatever at any given point is far and away the most obvious thing ever.
At first it was funny. But it was so inane that it quickly became annoying.
I blame the BBC of course. Boris is one of the most charismatic personalities ever to step on a tennis court as well an opinionated guy. He loves fun. He loves women. He lovs pokah. He loves grass. He loves Wimbledon! BBC I urge you, get more out of Boris!
