Maybe the Australian Test Cricket Team winning streak of 16 tests from december 28 2005 to january 2 2008. Another would be the dominance by the Sydney Swans Football Club who have missed out on the finals (playoffs) only 3 times since 1996.

When he won the U.S. Open in 2000, he became the first player ever to record a score double-digits under par in that event (-12). And, no, the course was not playing easy - it was so hard that year that second place was +3.

That's a flash in the pan. Jack Nicklaus made the cut at a major championship in 6 different decades (50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's) that included a first top 10 finish in 1960 and a last top 10 at the Masters in 1998.

Phil Mickelson's ability to avoid being the #1 golfer in the world is pretty remarkable given his 5 majors (and 11 runner-ups) and 43 tour wins. That's more wins than Spieth (11), McIllroy (14) and Thomas (9) combined who have all reached #1 recently.

I don't think Gehrig would have played any longer. They've made some advances in ALS treatment that help patients to live longer with a higher quality of life, but nothing that would help a professional athlete continue to compete at a high level.

Good point. When the entire field is doping, you are just racing with peers. He got a raw deal in a way considering he got a lifetime ban. Everyone was doing the same thing. They had to have someone to blame.

The city of champions has to be thrown in for a city: Pittsburgh Steelers of the 70's and the Pirates of the 70's. 4 Super Bowls, two World Series and 7 Pennants. Damn!
