Who were your favorite athletes growing up?

Joe Montana never threw an interception in his four Super Bowl games with the San Francisco 49ers on the way to four Championships and three Super Bowl MVP awards. Michael Jordan won an NCAA Championship with UNC and six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls, and was a five-time NBA MVP. Serena Williams won 23 Grand Slam titles, setting the record after surpassing Steffi Graf in 2017. Who were your favorite athletes growing up?

A bunch of late 60s--early 70s Orioles: Jim Palmer, Paul Blair (who I met about 20 years ago), Brooks Robinson, Al Bumbry, Elrod Hendricks. Cal Ripken, Jr., of course, and Mike Mussina until he went to the Yankees, but I was a grown-up by then.

Admired? Many. Idolized? Mickey Mantle (and astronaut John Glenn!). As a DC boy, QB Sonny Jurgensen and The Senator’s Frank Howard. How many touchdowns I threw in my fantasy world as Sonny and tape measure shots as Frank and the Mick!

Baseball's best ambassador Nolan Ryan

 

KC's own Buck O'Neil

 

Obviously I'm from Kansas City; these men were my heroes growing up, with Nolan being included because my Dad knew he'd be a legend, he said.

 

I love this topic and would appreciate different gens favs, especially as women't sports become prominent.

 

Thanks, Lynne, for a new and interesting topic!
