http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...simmons/040720 I particularly like the one on Larry Bird...
Thanks Chu Gai. And I’m a fan of these two, back-to-back: Isiah dropping 44 on John Stockton after "Dream Team 1" was announced. -- Karl Malone dropping a 50-stitch elbow on Isiah's head the next time they played.
That was great.
Bill Simmons, AKA The Boston Sports Guy is hilarious, a comic geniuos. I'm glad he is no longer writing for Kimmel's show. He can devote more time and effort to his columns.
I loved this column when I read it a couple of weeks ago, good stuff. I like a lot of the wrestling ones, and some of the Jordan ones even though I wasn't really a big fan of MJ's.
The Clemens game was awesome. IIRC, Kelvim Escobar, then a rookie, game in a closed it out with another 2 K's. An 18K game! And I got tickets the week before on the hope it would be Clemens 1st game back, and drove out from western mass with some friends when I was ~ 17. We were happy to cheer on our old hero by the end of the afternoon.
Kinda in first 1/3, wasnt it?
My favorite: 8.9 -- Jesse Owens winning four gold medals in Berlin (in front of Adolf Hitler) ... Jackie Robinson's career from 1947-1956.
Duran vs. DeJesus III. Roberto Duran at 135 lbs was the most invincible boxer I've ever seen. He rolled up points and KOs, and if they hit him, it only made him mad. DeJesus had dealt Duran his only loss (at the time) in their first meeting, a non-title match. In the rematch Duran evened the score after a slow start. In their 3rd meeting, however, Duran just punished DeJesus with countless body shots. It looked like he could've ended it at almost any time, but he just beat up that poor man through 11 rounds. I was a fan of Duran at that time, but I've gotta admit to feeling sorry for for Esteban after a while.
