3 months ago George Mikan would have been hard to find on this list.

Babe Didrikson should always be #1.

That list is way too basketball heavy.

Also, that pic of Muhammed Ali is a great one. Really shows his build and strength.

Free Agency has comepletely changed the way Baseball is played now, not only on the field, but with management and whatnot.  Now tis all about buying the bets players (if your steinbrenner orthe sox) or trying to keep someone from buying your players.
Lance armstrong is only 25th and Tony Hawk is onyl 24rth.
I agree with Mikan/Wilt/bird/johnson/jordan/Haywood/Russel  all being influential... but.. yeah...

I trhink the problem is they are only trying ot name Americain born athletes...  So You cant have Gretzgy or Pele or... because they arnt exactly Americain.  No matter how much they have changed the face of thier sport.

I'd like to maybe have seen Doyle Brunson or Bobby Fisher but I guess those dont count as sports...

I'd also love to have had Jackie Robinson on there over a basketball playter...

Hockey really is sorely neglected.  Where IS Bobby Hull (or even Bret Hull)?

Oh well, the NHL always was horrible at promoting it's status as a mainstream sport.  Hockey is superior to baseball in every way, IMO.

I think Bobby Hull was Canadian.

Brett was born in the US, so he would count. I don't think he should have made the list though.

Most of the revolutionaly hockey people clearly are canadian.  Although I would argue they should be counted since they are from North AMerica smile

As a HUGE hockey fan - I like the sport right where it is (minus the lockout).

I don't want Black Eyed Peas doing promos and MTV going to Roman Chechmanek's house for Cribs.

As long as they play, I'll watch.
