Mike Tyson is up there. I have always wondered what Josh Hamilton could have done and another is Len Bias. Had he not overdosed I think the 80's Celtic could have had one more championship in them.

Gretzky isn't the undisputed goat in hockey. Scoring records aren't everything.

Ranger fan here. I watched Josh play every day for 5 years. The dude when he is locked in is amazing. Lots of Mickey Mantle in that guy. Hard not to root for him. Just naturally gifted. I have no doubt he will have a bounce back season next year. Im glad we didnt resign him though.

Gretzky offensive wise is head and shoulders above everyone. Mario was awesome though. You can make a debate he is up there with Wayne. Im pretty sure Mario played on the same line as Jagr who was very underrtaed.

You might be right. The Soviets beat the NHL's best players, but lost to a bunch of college players.

Honorable mentions-

Appalachian State beating Michigan

Rulon Gardner beating Alexander Karalin (sp?). He hadn't lost a match in 13 years.

App State was at least a good in 1AA. They had a very experienced team and won their 3rd national title in a row that year and Michigan is overrated just about every year. Yes a major upset but some bigger college football upsets to me were...

Temple over VA Tech in 1998 (Temple was winless and VA Tech wa 5th in the country and blew a 17 point halftime lead to the fighting Cosbys
Nebraska over Oklahoma in 1959 (snapped OU's 74 game conference winning streak....my grandparents were at this game)
James Madison over VA Tech in 2010
Stanford over USC in 2007
Pitt over West Virginia in 2007 (cost WV a national title appearance)
Washington over USC in 2009 (Wash was 0-12 the year before)
Iowa State over Nebraska in 1992
Michigan over Ohio State in 1969
Michigan over Ohio State in 1995
Michigan State over Ohio State 1998
Boston College over Notre Dame in 1993 (cost Notre Dame the national title)
Kansas over Oklahoma in 1975

Anyone who says Jordan I will meet you half way. He is the best basketball player ever probably. Couldn't hit a curve ball to save his life.

The only thing Bo didn't know is Diddly. He would've been bigger than Jordan in the collective minds had he not been injured. Now, he's a footnote and that sucks. There has never been someone with that combination of power and speed. He was better at football, but he was a good baseball player. That's amazing considering how hard baseball is.

Buck O' Neil said in an interview before he died there is a sound he has only heard 3 times off of someones bat. The 3 guys he was referring to were...

Babe Ruth
Josh Gibson
Bo Jackson

I agree Bo was a better football player but he was HOF caliber in baseball too. Guy ran like a deer and was strong as an ox. He struck out a lot but hell so did Reggie Jackson.
