    Default Greatest of all time?

    The video of Secretariat got me thinking of the greatest of all time that we are fortunate to have seen in our life time I mean truly all time great, non negotiable, no questions asked.
    Secretariat obviously in his field.
    I think Muhammad Ali is another

    Who else?

    If we are talking about horses Northern Dancer. People - Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle. Remember them at Detroit stadium years ago and my Dad taking us there. They both hit home runs. Sweet!

    When I was a child I saw Roberto Clemente at the Astrodome. He hit a home run and made two incredible catches. He got a standing ovation from us, the opposing crowd, and died on his way to serve others before the next season. A remarkable man. I'll never forget that game, it was my first pro game.

    Boxing sorry loved Marvelous but Sugar Ray won that fight. Finally wore my vhs tape out but each time Sugar Ray won. If Cus hadn't died Tyson would have gone down as the greatest fighter in history.

    If you don't believe me when Tyson got beat by Douglas his team, lead by electro hair, was using a condom filled with water instead of a cold swell. Google it its true.

    Football is easy Jim Brown and he was well before my time. A men among boys.

    that's all me and Forrest have to say about that.
