#25 Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown
Origin: Remember how your parents told you to be careful around power tools? They weren't kidding. When future MLB pitcher Brown was a young man he accidentally put his hand in his family farm's feed chopper. The chopper's blades cut off most of his index finger, and a later fall on the same hand permanently mangled the middle finger on his pitching hand.
His maimed fingers, though, turned out to be a blessing when they enabled him to put massive amounts of spin on his pitches. Hitters couldn't get balls in the air against Brown, and he won 239 games on his way to the Hall of Fame. So, the lesson here is clear: if your Major League dreams are looking improbable, try sticking your hand in a woodchipper. Can't hurt! (Outside of the excruciating pain.) This is the look you'll want to go for:
#24 "The Flying Housewife" Fanny Blankers-Koen
Origin: The track events at the 1948 Summer Olympic Games in London got a bit more interesting when Dutch runner Fanny Blankers-Koen tied on her spikes. She was 30 years old, a mother of two children, and ready to kick some serious tail. Blankers-Koen ended up winning four gold medals at the games, which propelled her to international fame as the wife and mother who outran everyone else.
And while the picture of Fanny below may not suggest it, she was a confirmed MILTF. (A mom I'd like to do track and field with. Duh.)
Maybe if he played with his pants on he wouldn't hit balls into the water.
And you thought golf couldn't get any cooler.
She should think twice before breeding with that thing.
Video Golf Boys "2.Oh"
Straight outta the country club.
President Barack Obama, who golfed last week with noted short putter advocate Tiger Woods, addressed the nation today one last time before heading to the safety of an underground bunker.
"Be we pro-anchored putter or anti-anchored putter, may God have mercy on our souls and lead us through this dark time," said the president. "May we find a way through this and become a new and whole nation again. Goodbye for now, good luck and God bless."
Hopes that the U.S. military could keep the peace until a resolution supported by all of golf's governing bodies can be reached has proven fruitless. Officers and soldiers on both sides of the anchored putter debate have left the ranks and refused to follow orders from superior officers with dissenting putter views. A violent brawl broke out at a Joint Chiefs meeting last night over anchored putters, official splitting the military in two.
Now all that is left for American citizens is to fend for themselves.

#1 Is LeBron James better than Michael Jordan was in his prime?
Unfortunately, there is just no way to know this because Michael Jordan's prime fell when LeBron James was a little kid, so they never played against each other.
#2 Is LeBron James a better player than Kobe Bryant?
Similar to Jordan vs. LeBron, Kobe and LeBron's primes didn't exactly match up, but they at least have been able to play during the same era. However, basketball is a team sport, not an individual sport. And how would we agree on what makes a player better. Championships? Statistics? Again, basketball is a team sport and so many other factors come into play. All we know for sure is that both LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are very good basketball players. This speaks to the previous question, as well. Even if Michael Jordan and LeBron James had played against each other, it would likely be impossible to make a clear-cut case that one was better than the other.
#3 Will Tiger Woods break Jack Nicklaus' record for career majors?
The only way to know this is to wait and find out. Woods is currently 37 years old and in very good shape, so we could have the answer in the next 18 months or not for 25 years. Time will determine the answer. It's as simple as that.
