    I heard on the radio about the time barry sanders was late for his pro day and ran in jean shorts and borrowed shoes and still ran a 4.38

    I love stories like that, post more. ....

    Deion Sanders 40 yard dash in timberlands.

    In the spring of 1987, still a true freshman, Sanders won both the 100- and 200-meter dash races at a track and field meet, despite having almost no time to prepare for the competition. That night, he started in the outfield for Florida State's baseball team.

    iirc Dennis Rodman went out and locked down Karl Malone in a 1998 NBA Finals game in Utah on zero sleep after spending the entire previous night at a Vegas casino

    107 is over 10 gallons of beer. I call bullshit.

    There was a thread like this a little while back, and I remember thinking that a certain story came pretty damn close to equaling the "Who wants to sex Mutombo?" story for me. I cannot remember wtf it was though

    Gaylord "focker" Perry (a pitcher) was asked if he could ever hit a home run he said they'd put a man on the moon before he hit one. The day after Neil Armstrong was on the moon focker hit a home run.

    True but my guess is that a competitive adrenaline high fueled MJ's casino binges whereas another chemical might've been involved in Rodman's. fwiw I literally partied with Rodman for 5 straight nights at the Hollywood Hard Rock in the summer of '08 and natural adrenaline wasn't necessarily his drug of choice

    My God, why do people not know that "begs the question" does not mean "raises the question"?

    Question begging is a type of fallacy whereby you assume the conclusion as a premise of your argument.

    Wade Boggs totally drank 107 beers.
