So take a look at history and pick one athlete you could be for one day. Who would it be?
Reggie Jackson when he hit 3 homeruns in a World Series game.
Ali in the thrilla in Manilla.
Eruzione against the Soviets.
Magic Johnson vs. the Sixers at Center.
Bo versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Wilt gets 100.
Gretzky scores 5 to get 50 goals in 39 games.
Laettner scores winner against Kentucky.
Tiger on a Sunday at a major.
Steve Young’s 6 TDs in a Super Bowl
Fedorov and an underage Kournikova

    If I knew I could leave this existential experiment before the hangover, Denny blowing a .435.

    from the list, i’d have to say gretzky scoring 5.
    not on the list, but cool, would be cal ripken breaking the iron man record and hitting a dinger to boot. the relief that he could take a day off would last longer than denny’s hangover.

    Everyone else on that list had many other great days but Eruzione will always be remebered for that one single game. Also, I think beating the Soviets in hockey is generally considered the greatest sports moment of all time (at least in the US) so to be a major part of that would be pretty cool.
    I know I wouldn’t have wanted to be Denny today watching his Detriot Lions…probably with a hangover.

    Any starting pitcher one day after a game he pitched. I am feeling kinda lazy and those guys have tons of fun hanging out and goofing off. Are they allowed to drink beer when they don’t play? If so I could just drink beer and heckle the other team….wait a minute, this sounds familiar

    Mark Messier’s guarantee of victory in game six in 94 has to be up there. But ill take Federov.
