Ten Athletes You Admire 

Okay, I know I haven't even done my "Monday Baker's Dozen" yet but, here goes my "Ten on Tuesday" meme for this week:

Ten Athletes You Admire

1.    Muhammad Ali, politics aside, he stood up for what he believed in, fought for what he believed in, and did (for his time and after) what others couldn't, and did it with a sense of humor and a style never seen again;
2.    Jackie Robinson, for facing many adversities from team-mates and (so-called) fans alike to achieve what had never been done before to pave the way for so many other athletes to come;
3.    Jack Nicklaus, for just going out and playing golf amidst the anger hurled at him in the beginning that anyone would challenge the legendary Arnold Palmer;
4.    "Pistol" Pete Maravich, for overcoming the obstacles when others said he couldn't play basketball, when that was his only dream in life;
5.    Payne Stewart, for more than his athletic ability, but for the way he lived his life, and shared with others;
6.    Kyle Petty, although he may run consistently 35th or more in most NASCAR races, Kyle is doing something greater in the memory of his son Adam by building "Victory Junction."    Please consider making a donation to this WONDERFUL charity!;
7.    John Smoltz who, although he was a starter, agreed to be a closer after an injury and, although he wants to return to the bullpen as a starter, is willing to do whatever it takes to help the team.    Wherever he pitches in the line-up, he gives a stellar performance;
8.    Mark Martin drove for Valvoline before switching to the Viagra car, and my s.o. worked for Valvoline for several years.    Having had opportunities to meet Mark in person, Mark is a sincere, genuine person who isn't about all the razzle-dazzle;
9.    Martina Navratilova for being a versatile athlete, with 22 years of consecutive play, and who continues to be a respected and charismatic representative of the sport; and
10.    Joe Namath - Hey!, it's Broadway Joe ... and, he was one of Bear's Boys ... Roll Tide!

I hope to get to my "Monday Baker's Dozen" BEFORE Wednesday (no promises, though)!

This Author's Profile

♪   I am

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
