Preview of Fridays Post!!

Fridays post is going to be titled "The Greatest Competitor Ever". I was going to call it the greatest athlete ever, but I really don't think that's the idea I am going for. I think if it went with Athlete as the noun I would have to seriously look at all the decatheletes in the past 200 years as the main candidates. Athletic ability is not what I am talking about. Competitive drive is what I am looking at.

That's being said... I have narrowed it down to Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan and I have made my decision.

Ok... That being said... I am smart enough to know there may be a legitimate candidate that I may have overlooked. So that's where you come in. You either have to fill the comments below with your nominees for "Greatest Competitor in the History of The World" or forever agree with whatever I decide.

Your Choice!?

  1. While I certainly understand the two that you have chosen, Jordan vs Woods, I will only play Devils Advocate here. I agree that both Jordan and Woods are synonymous with athleticism, talent, drive, and spirit.

    One other person that I elevate to that same level when I think of a complete competitor would be Lance Armstrong.

    This guy won the Tour de "Lance" seven consecutive times. Fought and beat an aggressive form of testicular cancer. Spearheaded a foundation that spread a little yellow bracelet across the globe that gave strength to those struggling with idea of being a survivor, and not a victim, of cancer. Finally he took a obscure sport, at least in the US, and took the sport to the forefront. I'd say he deserves a spot on that pedestal.

    If Floyd Mayweather wasn't so cocky I would submit him for consideration. He is, in my opinion, the best boxer to ever grace the ring (attitude aside because that makes me like him less).

    There you have it.

    It was nice chattin with you for a bit today. We should grab Groves and knock back a cold one some time.

  2. Oh thanks alot Aaron.. No really thanks for complicating the crap out of this>>>

    This is why I did this pre-post post. I knew I was overlooking people and Lance Armstrong is the perfect example. And.. Now the whole thing is more complicated than ever. Armstrong is definitely on the short-list with Jordan and Woods.

    I too am a huge fan of Mayweather the boxer... Mayweather the human being is such a jerk that since I am the owner of this blog... we are just gonna DQ him right off the bat. I think he is best boxer ever as well though!!!

    Thanks for the input and complicating this! lol!!

  3. I'm ready to go on this!! I want to put in my word, but I must wait until Friday!


I love the discussion in the comments.. so... GO FOR IT!
