Your Sports Hero?

Recommended Posts

Who is your sports hero? Why did you choose that person?

Mine is Michael Jordan from the Chicago Bulls. Whenever I think of top player of any sport, MJ always comes to mind. His drive to win at any cost sets him above other players, plus, wow, the technique and the ability to achieve the unachievable is incredible. I still enjoy watching old clips of games where there are seconds on the clock and he pulls out a win! Amazing.

Mine is Pavel Datsyuk. He was called The Magician, and that is a well earned nickname. His skill on the ice is unmatched. I went to a game in St. Louis to watch the Red Wings take on the blues. We were down by 2 points and had 3 minutes left in the third period. He pulled it out and we scored 3 and won the game.  He got a couple assists and a goal. There was also a game I was watching on TV and he was going by the net and jumped over an opponents stick, shot behind himself, and scored. No other player in the NHL could do the things he could pull off. Unfortunately he retired and is now playing professionally in his home country of Russia. Iwish he would come back as we've had several bad seasons lately. But Lidstrom also retired, then we lost Zetterburg to injury. Our best 3 players. We also lost Howard to retirement in 2020.

Mine was Colin McRae the Scottish rally driver because of his fearless way of driving and his goal was always to push his cars way beyond his limits. It showed in how he made some of the most insane drifts and crazy jumps and windy roads were like casual stroll down the street for him. He was one of the reasons why I ever bought a Subaru Impreza WRX Sti in the first place and my passion for rally cars developed. It's sad that he died in a helicopter crash - he will never be forgotten.
