Local Wichita sports writer put his on his facebook. Let's follow his lead:

1. Michael Jordan - Simply the best. Loved his desire to win and hunger to be the best.
2. Derrick Thomas - Was my all-atime favorite football player. RIP. I will always go to youtube and watch your amazing highlights!
3. Albert Pujols - Christian man on my favorite Baseball team. 2 World Series victories! Thank you Albert.
4. Tony Gonzalez - Even though I hate that you left he was incredible.
5. Derrick Johnson - Amazing LB. Does not get the credit he deserves
6. Stan Musial - The first pro player's biography I ever read.
T7. Priest Holmes - UT RBs are awesome. TD Machine
T7. Jamaal Charles - See above and a speed freak
9. Phil Mickelson - Currently learning how to have a short game by reading his book. Lefty Leap is one of my all-time Favorite memories.
10. CM Punk - Yep I'm a wrestling fan. Punk is the (pipe)bomb.

Mario Chalmers gets hm for hitting the shot that created the best sports moment of my life
Collin Klein is a NC away from rising up to #3.

Michael Jordan... Man, my older brother hated me for so long, but then we started watching MJ and he started to like me more. For some reason, even though we supported the same teams and the Bulls weren't one of them, talking about MJ and everything opened up so much for us that it's impossible for me to not love him. Just by playing ball he saved our relationship, and we've been really close ever since.

I'm not sure if I could make a top 10, but Shaq would easily be my #1. He was the reason I rooted against the Pistons (my favorite basketball team) in the 2004 finals. Laughing

Oh and Bredan Shanahan. For some reason I loved that guy, and I don't even like hockey that much.

It wouldn't get any traffic in any other forum where it would be appropriate.

Lefty and Furyk would be somewhere close to the top of my HM list. Idk why, I just appreciate Jim and how he's not the biggest hitter but is solid enough to win.

My Top Ten....obviously Giroux and Shady are the newer addition.
    1. Brian Dawkins - will go down as the single greatest eagle I got to see play
    2. Chuck Bednarik - Way before my time but after watching all his games and interviews he deserves his Mythic Status in the fanbase..
    3. Chase Utley - I'm not a diehard baseball fan, but I watch the phillies mostly because of what he brought/brings to them. I named my dog after him Very Happy


    4. Brian Westbrook - defied all expectations and just did so much on his own.
    5. Jon Runyan - Such a nasty dirty mauler at RT...I miss him.
    6. Lesean McCoy - favorite current eagle, so talent and backs it up every game.
    7. Adrian Peterson - have to respect what a warrior he is, on top of how he makes grown men look like little kids.
    8. Larry Fitzgerald - So humble and has such immense talent...you can't not like him.
    9. Trent Cole - just relentless effort, leave it all out there. Always under-rated throughout his career but let his play do the talking.
    10. Claude Giroux - Like McCoy he just oozes talent, NHL better be back soon because I miss watching him play.
