Who are your sports heroes?

There's already a thread about people in sports who piss you off now lets make one about people over the years who you've looked up to.

Here's a few:

Cal Ripken
Byron Leftwich
Magic Johnson
Mario Lemieux
Brandin Knight

Grondar, I 'd have to agree with you on a couple;

Stan Musial
Rex Hudler
Kurt Rambis
Dan Marino
David Eckstein


My sports heroes tend to be the guys that got where they are becuase they worked their asses off. Not necessarily because they were gifted with a ton of natural talent.

Jared Lorenzen-- some have dubbed him the Hefty Lefty and the Pillsbury Throwboy, but still he gives men like myself hope that we can excel and play quarterback at that.

Sandy Koufax - quiet perfection, "the left arm of God" as SI once put it

David Robinson - I hate the Spurs but this guy is a model citizen

David Eckstein - this guy is amazing, he has no arm, mediocre range, an average bat, but just seems to come out on top all the time

Sammy Sosa - very modest but very powerful

Magic Johnson - I saw him speak a couple years ago at my school. Very inspirational and a smart businessman.

Emmitt Smith

He is a perfect gentleman.

He is a tribute to his sport.

He knows that he is a role model and fulfils all the obligations as such.

I hope when Arizona comes to Texas Stadium this season Emmitt has a 300 yard game and scores 72 points.

Just an observation, but maybe you should learn to spell one of your sports heroes' names. I believe it's "Favre".

Shjon Podein.

He used to play for the Colorado Avalanche though I lost what happened to him after he was traded out. Sports heros also have to have a good presence in the community and Shjon made himself known in community service by choice, not because he was forced to.

I admire a lot of athletes for their skills and accomplishments, but none would be a hero. Too many are flawed in their personal lifes.

Everyone has problems sometime in their life, if they're famous however it gets blown out of proportion ten times over.

DEI youre right about earnhardt. He was a very good man. it's too bad he (like every race car driver and fan) got the "hick" stereotype.

Mario Lemeuix, cancer and record breaking at the same time has to be tough.

Brett Favre. What a big heart and love for the game.

Not Corey Dillon. What a whiney piece of shit.

Barry Sanders. The back who had it all.

Lance Armstrong. 'Nuff said.
