      Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

        Question: If this was started, from the beginning, today instead of several months ago, how much further does Usain Bolt go? Michael Phelps?

                I was hoping to do it about 2 weeks ago, but work keeps getting in the way, and I'm not on here very much on weekends like I used to be. I'll try to get them posted very soon.

                    Are we down to the Final Four yet?

                    Looks like Jim Brown vs Mohammed Ali and Jim Thorpe vs Babe Ruth, no?

                    If that's the case, can we just declare Jim the winner now?
