It’s time we all answer that Facebook survey going around


My Facebooking has been very limited since before the election, but I still get on from time to time to post on the KSR Facebook page (like it here!) and see what all my friends’ babies are up to these days. Regular ol’ Facebook stuff, ya know?

But last night I noticed everyone on my feed is doing a survey about their favorite athlete in each of the major sports, and I want to get in on the action, although I’m doing it on here instead of on stupid Facebook.

Here’s how it looks, so you can copy and paste or whatever:

Favorite player in each sport of all time!



College Basketball-





College Football-


Copy, edit and paste

Now I’ll give you my answers and then you leave yours in the comments section. Once we get some responses we can all debate and argue and completely blast each other’s personal opinions and preferences. Should be a fun time.

NFL- Steve McNair

NBA- Reggie Miller

College Basketball- Can’t answer that. Anyone on the ’96 team.

MLB- Fred McGriff

NHL- P.K. Subban (I learned hockey last week. Go Preds.)

Boxing- Muhammad Ali

Wrestler- Stone Cold Steve Austin

College Football- Freddie Maggard/Jared Lorenzen

MMA- Does Kimbo Slice count?

Your turn…

    You Einstein’s do realize these FB “surveys” are put out by criminal elements to use to try to hack into your accounts. Favorite movies, favorite athletes, favorite vacation spots…they are all common security questions.

    Now go change your passwords!

      Yeah cause someone is going to hack into my KSR account using those answers and just totally slander me, Einstein
