I know a lot of you don't go to the Big Sports 590 message boards....probably a good thing for you....but this was written by Tim in Omaha and I thought it was a riot....good stuff:
Matt vs. Non Homer Boston fan:
who is the best baseball player ever?
Matt: Dood, Teddy Bahhlgame! best Eva!!
Non Homer Boston fan: Probably Willie Mays, or Babe Ruth - you might even throw Mantle in there.
Who is the best hockey player ever?
Matt: Bobby Ooooah!! Dood!!
Non Homer Boston fan: It's really one of three guys - Mario, Wayne or Bobby. I gotta go Bobby because he's the home town guy.
Who is the best basketball player ever?
Matt: Dude, Larry Bird - he did it all!!! He was the smahhtest playa eva!
Non Homer Boston fan: I'd love to say Bill Russel - 12 rings is hard to deny. But that was a different era with no free agency and teams that couldn't be broken up. So, you really have to go with jordan.
Who is the best QB ever?
Matt: Dooooooood.....come on, guy!! Brady's the balls! He's way smahta than anyone eva!
Non Homer Boston fan: I mean, the first name that comes to mind is always Montana. but you can't forget Unitas, Elway, Marino and even Farve. Brady may one day be in that conversation. But not yet.
Which team was most dominating in it's respective sport?
Matt: DUDE!! It's, ah, like the B's in the 1970's, the C's in the 1960's and those early 1900's Red Sox DOMINATED, dude....And this pats dynasty? Clearly the bets ever.
Non Homer Boston fan: Well, lets see - Montreal Canadians, 24 championships, Yankees 26 - so there's your answer there..You gotta go with the celtics of the 1960's - although the Bulls would make a good argument and you really have to consider the pro-NFL dominance of the Packers, no? Otherwise, the Pats actually have a chance to be one of the best.
