Re: Most deserving athletes
I'll throw a little Nascar your way. Yes Nascar is a sport until proven otherwise. Mark Martin deserves one. He has been a great driver for years, and I would have loved to see him win the first one for Roush Racing, but that can't happen now. Mark is an extremely nice guy with a great career behind him. He lacks only one thing. A championship. There is the one year he should have one, not sure which off the top of my head, but he was penalized 25 points on a very questionable decision by Nascar. He ended up losing the Championship to Earnhardt Sr. by less than that margin. Yeah, I'm a little bitter about that.
Griffey is definately up there along with Anderson and Simmons. I like Huggins, but winning a championship in the NCAA is not like it is in professional sports. A lot of great coaches go without winning one in the NCAA. The run he had at UC should staisfy him enough. Biggio, Bagwell are also up there.
