Monday Morning Sh--t Storm

Veterans day is coming up so lets celebrate our friends in the Armed Forces by shit storming the greatest athlete/serviceman combo's.

We all know the story of Pat Tillman, and there some other great guys out there.

I'll start it off with Chuck Bednarick.

Before Bednarick was an all American at Penn, and the last great two way player in the NFL, he served as a waist gunner on a B-24 Bomber during WWII. You're probably asking what more could this guy do to make me like him more? Well I'll tell you.

Bednarick completely annihilated Frank Gifford. I'm talking ole Frank being out for a year and a half domination. And that's one thing we can all stand up an applaud.

Ok there are a lot of great players out there so lets get after it.


  1. Jack Andrew Lummus, two sport athlete in college, played pro ball for the giants, fought and died at Iwo Jima but was awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroism.

  2. Ted Williams, David Robinson, Chad Hennings

  3. Bob Kalsu. There was a great article on him in SI a couple years back.
