I enjoyed Albert Belle and Mike Tyson's.. as well as Bill Russell, Bobby Knight and Shaquille O'Neal.

..my favorites were Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Jackie Robinson.

Jackie Robinson's was simply awesome and should be required viewing in history classes.

Who the hell is Mike Bossy?

50 in 50 bitch.


50 what in 50, and .. and i am not a bitch.

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


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

I definitely remember enjoying Bill Russell's Sportscentury. It was one of the rare times I was watching, and got pissed it was actually ending.

Mike Bossy was one of the greatest pure scorers in NHL history, playing for the New York Islanders and winning four straight Stanley Cups with them.

Bill Russell's and LT's are my favorite.

Ali's is good as well and I actually really liked bill walton's

i think its lame when they have sports century segments on horses and race car drivers.

BC get off Bossy's dick for a second and look at the man above him. .. . . . ..Wayne Gretzky, who demolished that record in 39 games.

While not a Sportscentury per se, but it's close enough, Smokin' Joe Frazier's Behind the Glory was really good, especially the Ali stuff. Not quite as good as Mark Kram's book about Manilla, but very close.

As a Boston sports fan, the following SportsCenturys are must-watch:

-Orr
-Russell (except for the part when Cooz breaks down; I'm sure they had their reasons, but I still think they kept the camera on about three seconds too long.)
-Yaz
-Fisk (particularly for NH natives)

Others I enjoy: Ali, Gretzky, Maurice Richard, Joe Frazier, Rocky Marciano, Secretariat (yes, I know its about a horse, but still), Isaiah Thomas, Michael Jordan, Mike Tyson.

I was kind of surprised that nobody mentioned Sonny Liston's on here yet. That's by far the most fascinating one.
Enjoy your clams, cocksuckers.

I dont think Ive ever said the Bossy was as good of a player than the Great One. Ive put Gretzky at #1 of my list in the top 10 all time players thread.

Grant Hill's beyond the glory is a good one.

The Top 50 list in '99 was really good. Just three hockey players though: Gretzky, Howe, Orr.

And, one horse...who was ahead of Mickey Mantle, Edwin Moses, and Bo Jackson (who, IIRC, was not even on the top 50 athletes of all-time list).

The weird thing is that 20-21 were two Detroiters, Howe and Cobb, and 30-31 were two Bostoners, Bird and Orr.
