sweet image. Was BK somewhat influenced by PJ even for this one?

It's okay, do you want some more?

Wonder if anyone ventured out to do a print of Hulk Hogan body-slamming Andre the Giant? I mean, I know its fake and all, but that's still talked about some 23yrs later and was huge for me growing up as a little kid. I'm still wating to actually see more prints of "moments in sports"

That would be beyond fantastic... people would think I'm an idiot if I had it on my wall but I wouldn't care!

Supa Fly off the top of the cage in MSG onto Bob Backlund.

Actually, I'd prefer a Mr. Fuji/Mr. Saito print with Classy Freddie Blassie more I think.
All right Hamilton!

Could be the other way around.. PJ may have gotten that lyric from hearing the Doc Ellis story

I'm hoping some artists tackled some great moments -

-The Babe calling his shot
-Mr October hitting his 4th hr
-Richard Petty wrecking or winning, he did both quite well
-the Sox finally breaking the curse
-Michigan/Ohio State rivalry (or any college football rivalry)
-Gretzky print
-Thrilla In Manilla
-one of the Triple Crown winners in horse racing
-Pastrana doing a backflip at the X-games

Or at least prints of these people/animals

I think it was only 3 ... but, still cool as it was on 3 consecutive pitches.

rowdy roddy piper.

i want:
razor ramone
first version of the undertaker
rick flair

and most of all:
Ludvig Borga ((Tony Halme) - rest in piece my friend. you showed us the only real thing in wrestling in a long time, back in the days when you decided in the middle of the "match" that the agreed scripted fight in which you would have had to lose to owen hart would just look too implausible and therefore stopped the farse by seriously beating up owen hart and then leave the ring to never return to the WWF.

funny how we admired some of those athletes when we were little. do kids still watch this stuff?

Jackson's crowning achievement came with his three-home-run performance in Game 6, each on the first pitch, off three different Dodger pitchers.

Totally my bad. Perfect case of me thinking one thing and typing another.

Definitely memorable. I remember watching that with family at my uncle's house. We all sorta had that "oh sh!t" moment.
