I'm talkin any sport

Our dads all had those players who they grew up on and told us about when we were growing up

For me



My dad can go on for hours about how great he was. I'm talking about the college Pete my dad never really talked about his NBA career but he made him outto be a god they way he talked about his college days

Mantle, Williams, Mays, DiMaggio, etc. All the old school baseball players that my old man still says were real players


Always reminds me of the guys who missed years of their primes because of military service. Teddy Williams missed like over 4 years of his prime.

My dad will NOT shut up about Willie Mays.


All I hear about is Willie. And if I even think about tryin to compare someone in any aspect, I get hung up on with the quickness.

My dad is a Cincinnati Reds fan


So all I heard was how great Johnny Bench was, Joe Morgan, Pete Rose, Barry Larkin and Eric Davis.

The only Dodger he always liked was Steve Garvey.
