I just thought that I would make this thread so that everyone can share who their favorite athletes and/or coaches are and why they are your favorite or why they have inspired you. They can be retired or still playing, here is my list;
- BASEBALL- Albert Pujols- Just an awesome all around player and he carries himself very well. He is not showy and in your face, he does his job and does it well. I also like Josh Hamilton a lot. If anyone hasn’t read his book, I highly suggest it. If I tried to explain his story I would be here all-day.
- FOOTBALL- Barry Sanders- Has the same birthday that I do and I believe he is the best running back of all time. He had pretty much no offensive line and still managed to make defenders look like they were trying to catch a chicken with it’s head cut off.
- SOCCER- I don’t watch that much soccer but I would say Lionel Messi.
- TENNIS- Roger Federer- He is the best to every play the game and I am so happy to see him back as the world’s #1. He is an excellent player and, just like pujols, gets the job done.
So this is just a quick list I made of my favorite athletes and why I like them so much. Feel free to include anyone from any sport.
Thanks and I am looking forward to your responses!
