    Bo Jackson was a beast! Makes you wonder what he could have done if he didn't need to quit.

    Re: Best two sport athletes of all time?

    Bo was great. Another that comes to mind is Brian Jordan who was good as an Atlanta Falcon in the NFL and with the Cardinals in Baseball. Also, had Tavian Banks not gone for football, I would suspect he would have had a top notch pro soccer career! He was that good at the JN level!

    Re: Best two sport athletes of all time?

    Bo is definitely in the conversation. I'd probably put Jim Brown ahead of him, though. And Jackie Robinson lettered in four sports at UCLA; nobody does that.

    I had always heard that Dave Winfield was drafted in 3 sports out of U of Minn - baseball, football, and basketball. Too lazy to verify, but impressive if true.

    Jim. Thorpe. Biathalon and Pentathalon gold medals. That's like... seven sports right there.
