Reposting as a clickable link. You all should really check it out -- it's a great ad for the Sega Genesis, features an enormously fat man without a shirt on, and has Joe Montana wearing a Jets uniform. Perfect.

That is great, I remember that commercial and have thought about how weird it was for Joe to wear the Jets duds. BTW, I like those unis, need to make a comeback.

is this where we're supposed to look dumb and say "Don't you mean Renaldo Balkman? He has always been on the Knicks as a pro, you idiot"? Well I know better .

This one always seemed wrong to me!

WOW! not that I've ever been a huge fan of Fuhr, but I have no recollection of him in Calgary... I mean playing for the next door rivals??? how desparate do you have to be???

Well, almost as much as thinking you can rekindle the glory years by re-uniting with the one (The Great One) who allowed you to win Stanley Cups with a 3.87, 3.44 & 3.43 GAA (and a Vezina wih 3.43!!!)

I thought it was where we completely got off the "legends" topic and started naming guys like Amos Otis and Freddie Patek--and with no pictures, to boot. Can they really be in the "wrong uniform" if we've never heard of them?

Here are some Aussie Rules ones:

Wayne Carey (Played 244 games for North Melbourne before a scandal broke and he moved to the Adelaide Crows for one season)

Nathan Buckley (Collingwood captain who played one season with the Brisbane Bears before asking to be traded to a Melbourne team)

Chris Judd (Probably the best player in the AFL today was traded to Carlton this year after requesting a move back to Melbourne.)

Tony Lockett (Played 193 games and won a Brownlow Medal with Saint Kilda before defecting to Sydney where he played for the next 7 seasons)

Although I wouldn't call him a legend, here's Eli as a Charger, for a couple minutes.
