OH, and Pat White...Won't do a lick in the NFL, but as a CF QB he dominates. Thought I'd throw that in with the mention of Hansbrough and Curry.

How can you nominate a women's golfer (ochoa) and not nominate Annika. She may be retiring, but she dominated women's golf in a way that Tiger is jealous of.

How bout me... Nah, everyone would be jealous.

I say Danica Patrick. She may not win best athlete but she would win hottest.

I don't think Tom Brady should be mentioned. He is not known for his athletic abilities. Along with Peyton Manning. They dominate their sports yes but lack the athletic part.

I think it may be a good idea to shorten the list to 32, so that way we get the best of the best. 64 will include guys who have been one year wonders. I also think we should disclude college athletes, as they haven't risen to the pinnacle of their sports yet.
