Targus™ has an OK reputation so far
Question If there was a Mount Rushmore of sports...

which athletes would be on it?

remember having your face put on there means you have changed or made an impact on something that goes beyond just basketball or baseball, or whatever your sport is.

One of Pelé, Maradona, Ronaldo or Beckham[due to worldwide popularity and rockstar status] HAVE to be on there. Pelé would be my selection. Others, I'd have Gretzky, Jordan and Ali.

Really? The World Cup last year and the amount of sales being made right now due to Becks pretty much proves you otherwise. But what more can I expect from someone such as your self?

no one here gives a sh-it about Beckham except for mabye some girls in Jr. High

we know how much he is getting paid and who he plays for but I seriouosly doubt anyone is following those games or know any of his stats here...

we care about the NFL....Beckham wouldn't make it over Ryan Leaf in this country

Really? Just Jr. High girls? Weird, as about 65% of his jersey purchases are males, according to ESPN from a few days ago, pretty weird, isn't it?

How much is he getting paid to play? Since you know, why not tell me? Don't try to look it up now.

So, your saying no one cares about the NBA? MLB? PGA? NASCAR? Boxing? If not, then why are Woods, Ruth, Robinson, Woods, Jordan being thrown into the discussion?
