    I don't get the hate for Gordon. Must be a Yank thing. I find him a great driver who always seems to show up for the big races, and he is a great interview. I find it hard to dislike the man personally.

    I happen to agree, but take alot of crap for it. Even Dave M. doesn't like "the snot nosed punk".. but I like his style. Much like the love / hate relationship that fans had for Dale SR. ... either you liked him or disliked him. I disliked him.. but yes it was hard the day he died.

    Speaking of Mr. Yount, I went to a Diamondbacks game a few years ago when I lived in Phoenix. Little did I know that Robin Yount was the DBacks' first base coach at the time. I spent pretty much the entire game watching him and that glorious mustache! Haha!

    NFL: past present future:Brett Favre

    NHL: all time-Cam Neely
    current-joe thornton

    MLB:don't follow much


    NBA:all time-David Robinson
    current -Steve Nash

    Nascar:Jimmie Johnson
    (if you're wondering why people hate Gordon it's cause he represents everything Nascar isn't. He's a prettyboy who doesn't like to get dirty and enjoys LA and wearing suits. I'm just saying why it is not that it's my opinion. Johnson's hated for the same reason)

    Rodeo: alltime:Jim Sharp
    current:Adriano Muendiz

    Beer league hockey: myself. LOL

    NFL = Favre
    MLB = Yount, Aaron
    NBA = Kareem.

    Growing up in Milwaukee, I have seen all these guys play live for my home teams. I was real young when i saw kareem play for the Bucks.

    Hank was washed up when he came to the brewers, but i saw him hit a home run in County Stadium.

    and of course Favre, one of the best times in my life was the last game at County Stadium, and playing tackle football in the parking lot after the game.

    to that fireman i threatened, sorry dude, but never, ever, take the football away from a drunken football freak, in middle of a game!

    I guess I like a certain type of athlete. I would say that Jimmie is my second favourite Nascar driver. I still like the Jeff Foxworthy reason why people hate Gordon, it is because he enunciates.

    Do not really watch or care about any other sports, and really have not paid any attention to the NBA or NHL the past 15 years.

    I don't really care for any professional sport other than football.

    Present favorite--Along with everyone else Favre.

    Past favorite--Reggie White.

    Have a good weekend all.

    When my kids were in school, I took, of course, an interest in all of their sports which were football, basketball, and volleyball. My favorite players in those sports were "Chip" and "Heather". Needed to throw some humor in here. Now, their children are playing soccer, basketball, softball, and volleyball. So my favorite players now are: Danielle, Breanna, and Allison
