  1. Football (Defense): I'd have to take out Ray Lewis and put in Lawrence Taylor. For baseball, I would have to replace Jimmie Foxx with Willie Mays. And for hockey, since this is Mt. Rushmore (an American icon), give me Chris Chelios over Mario Lemieux.

  2. I would remove Pedro Martinez. I would replace him with Cy Young

  3. Are you saying your favorite people from each of these sports or are you saying these are the 4 best from the sport end of story.

    If it's the second of those 2, i am going to destroy this list.

    Like I used to love Bobby Knight, but think he's been a huge baby as of late, but no list of college basketball coaches is complete with out him.

    And last time I checked, when you Google American heroes you'll find George Washington, Abe Lincoln BEN FRANKLIN and JOEY CHESTNUT!

    1. Good question.The answer is both.For all of the real sports Iput my opinion of the best. For WWE Mascots, Traditions, and Love to Hate they are my opinions.

    2. Good, then I can call you an idiot over and over again and feel better about myself

      I'd probably put Kareem on my NBA list just because he was good for so long. He won Finals MVps 15 years apart. I'd probably knock of Larry Legend for him.

      Cy Young is a must for Pitchers, No Pedro and I'll leave Mariano on there, but that's a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge stretch.

      NFL Def NEEDS NEEDS Lawrence Taylor as he changed the way Defenses played. He was such a new breed no one knew how to handle him. Ray Lewis is super over rated and shouldn't sniff the top 10 let alone top 4

      KANE? Really, the most boring SuperStar ever? I'd Throw in Steve Austin way over Kane not to mention Andre, Hogan and the older guys.

      Your NHL list including Roy is a little bit of a stretch. I really like Roy and think he's a great goaltender, but he wasn't nearly as good as his peer Marty Brodeur who I would have on list instead.

      Fodor Mentioned the WKU Red Blob, and I agree, I also feel strongly about the Oregon Duck.

      Alright i'm done hating on your list.....for now

  4. How DARE you leave the Western Kentucky Hilltopper off of the mascots' Rushmore?

  5. A closer cannot be a top four all time pitcher. Sorry, mo.
