Not sure if this is a dumb idea or not but I figured I’d go for it, what the heck. This is a thread where we can celebrate the anniversaries of stuff that happened in sports history. Feel free to post YouTube clips, highlights, documentaries, etc about the event. I’ll get us started. On this day in 2004, the Washington Capitals drafted a young Russian forward by the name of Alexander Ovechkin. I’d say it’s worked out pretty well.
Crabcake47 posted a topic in Sports In GeneralThis is a topic I thought about a little bit ago. Think about it. Keeping personal feelings out of it, we are living in an era that has, quite possibly: The best QB of all time (Brady) The greatest basketball player of all time (LeBron) Two of the greatest, if not the two greatest, soccer players of all time (Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo) The greatest pure NHL goal scorer of all time (Ovechkin) The best 3-point shooter of all time (Curry) The most athletic and complete near/actual/whatever 7-footer of all time (Durant) One of the most all-around baseball players in a long time (Trout) Countless other players that could very likely qualify for top-5 or top-10 at their position (Rodgers, Crosby, McDavid (if he keeps going like he is), Kershaw, so many many more that I'm forgetting) And this is just individual players. This isn't even mentioning some of the historic dynasties we've seen over the last 10 years (Patriots (ugh), Blackhawks, Penguins (double ugh), Warriors, SF Giants, etc). So what do you guys think? Agree? Disagree? Stupid discussion? Discuss.
