We learn from the NC Times the list of of athletes that impress Anthony Keith Gwynn Jr., Muhammad Ali comes in second place.
"This is the top until I ever meet Michael Jordan," Gwynn said.
Gwynn has now met Muhammad Ali and Magic Johnson and he was starstruck to be sure, but they aren't Michael Jordan. That kind of a back handed compliment. So just in case Ali and Johnson aren't clear...
- Michael Jordan
- Muhammad Ali
- Magic Johnson
Is it just me or do a lot of guys on the Padres sound like they'd rather be playing basketball? Here's Gwynn without a baseball player in his top 3 athletes and two of them are basketball players.
Will Venable was interviewed for an article in the Union Tribune today and he said:
"After my junior season in high school, baseball wasn’t important to me," Venable said. "I wasn’t real good at it and I had lost interest. Baseball wasn’t a priority in my life."
"I loved basketball."
I don't know for sure if Chris Young would rather be playing basketball, but I think it is safe to say.
