Sorry BrewTownBeat, I had to steal your post idea. I apoligize. Remember ESPN's stupid attempt to find "Titletown USA?" Yeah, that was retarded. They made up for it (sort of) by starting a series finding the "Mount Rushmore of Sports" for each state. Yup, the 4 people that would define sports in each state. My votes:
Vince Lombardi: Argulbly the best coach ever. When you win the Super Bowl, what do you get? The Vince Lombardi Trophy. That says it all.
Hank Aaron: Yount is the greatest Brewer ever, but Aaron gets the nod. A WS ring, the "true" home run champ, all time RBI king, and maybe the best baseball player ever.
Pat Richter: Not only did he win 9 letters at UW (All American football player twice, College football HOF) but he completely transformed the UW athletic department into top flight status by hiring the likes of Barry Alvarez, Dick Bennett, Bo Ryan, and Mike Eaves.
Reggie White: The Favre-ites are going crazy. Although he didn't stay in GB long, he's the real reason the Packers won the Super Bowl. He made signing with Green Bay fashionable for the black athlete as NE Wisconsin might as well been Yellowknife, Yukon before White got there. If Reggie doen't sign with GB, neither does Sean Jones, Santana Dotson, Desmond Howard, Andre Rison, Keith Jackson (doesnt accept the trade), and Eugene Robinson. Without these guys - No Super Bowl.
Who's on your Wisconsin Sports Mt Rushmore?
