    Tough one, but I got MLB, NFL, and MLS in this one!

    Funny note is that Billy and Teal are nearly 6 months apart in age too!
    Wow. I didn't even notice the link. I did mine by myself lol. But it looks like the link does not use MLS players anyways.

    NEFTALI SOTO --> Billy Hamilton

    Linked Sliding Billy to our Billy. Funny because they will not let you enter both names so I had to use Soto's name. Also, this is 8 degrees of separation, but given that it spans over 123 years, I think I will let it slide.

    Re: Six Degrees of Sports Separation

    I used to try to do this with Reds roster positions to see how far back one could go. It proved less entertaining that I thought it would.

    For example.....Wlad Balentin was Robert Manuel who was Dave Williams who was Sean Casey who was Dave Burba who was Deion Sanders who was Roberto Kelly who was Paul O'neill.

    I always wanted to see if there was a trace back to someone on the BRM or something crazy.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
