Just got through watching Mike Tyson's Sportscentury and it was fantastic. What are some of your favorite ones?

My favorite one...whew, that's tough. I really liked Larry Bird's and Connie Hawkins'. But, I guess my favorite one, not surprisingly, was Bear Bryant's.

The one and only, the great one. Mike Bossy comes in at a close second.

Yeah, Larry's is definitely one of the better ones. I also enjoyed Tiger's.

I think this fell into the "and beyond" of the top fifty and beyond for Sportscentury, but the one on Albert Belle was absolutely FANTASTIC.

At the SEC Baseball tourney he ran out of the stadium to beat down a redneck that was sitting behind the outfield wall with a 2 by 4 chanting "buckwheat buckwheat"

The lesson, as always...don't fuck with Joey Belle.

I will not tolerate this disrespect to the greatest dynasty of all time. 50 goals in 50 games by the way, first time ever.

edit- I forgot about Maurice Richard. He was actually the first person. Some other facts about one of the greatest all time scorers.
[quote=wikipedia]Bossy scored a then record 53 goals as a rookie, won the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year, and was named a Second Team All-Star. He is the only player to have scored 50 or more goals for nine consecutive seasons. Wayne Gretzky was the only other to have scored 50 or more goals in as many as nine seasons. Additionally, he and Gretzky are the only players ever to have scored 60 or more goals in as many as six seasons. Unlike Gretzky, however, who played 20 seasons, Bossy was healthy enough only for 10, of which only the first nine were full.

As he never played long enough for his skills to diminish, his scoring averages remain quite high. Bossy averaged .762 goals per game in the regular season, more than any other player in NHL history, and .659 in the playoffs, second only to Mario Lemieux at .710. Lemieux is second to Bossy in the regular season, at .754. Comparatively to other goal leaders, Gretzky scored .601 in the regular season and .587 in the playoffs; Brett Hull, .586 and .510; Phil Esposito, .559 and .469; Maurice Richard, .556 and .617; Bobby Hull, .547 and .521; Marcel Dionne, .542 and .429; Guy Lafleur, .497 and .453; Mike Gartner, .494 and .352. Many thus regard Bossy along with Lemieux (as well as Bobby Hull and Richard) as the best pure goal scorers ever to play the game.

In 1980-81, he scored 50 goals in 50 games, the first to do so since than the great Maurice Richard thirty-six years earlier. Bossy was also known for being able to score goals in remarkable fashion, the most incredible, perhaps, in the 1982 Stanley Cup finals when, up-ended by a check and several feet in the air, parallel to the ice, Bossy nonetheless managed to hook the puck with his stick and score.

Bossy was noted for his clean play, almost never resorted to fighting, and won the Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play three times: 1983, 1984, and 1986. He earned the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP in 1982, and scored 17 goals in three straight playoffs -- 1981, 1982, and 1983 -- the only player ever to do so. In reaching the Stanley Cup Finals five times, between 1980 and 1984, Bossy scored 69 goals. By contrast, in Gretzky's five Stanley Cup Finals playoffs during his peak years with the Edmonton Oilers, he scored 59 goals.

Bossy earned 5 First Team All-Star selections, one of only four right wings ever to do so, again a notable achievement considering that the other three had much longer careers (Gordie Howe - 26 years; Maurice Richard - 18 years; Guy Lafleur - 17 years). He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1991. His #22 jersey was retired by the Islanders on March 3, 1992.
I never fully recognized the greatness of this wonderful man myself either.

So Mike Bossy was a soccer player? A water polo player? Field hockey?
