    DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE?

    Who is (s)he?  What is his/her sport?


    What makes this person your favorite?


    I've never given it much thought, but have seen some Derek Jeter commercials the past couple of days and did a little research on the man and found some really positive qualities.  I can't call him my all-time favorite, but the man has commanded a lot of respect and his personal life doesn't seem too "seedy".  :0
