I wish it didn’t bother me… but this Forbes’ Most Influential Athletes list is lodged under my skin. So, I did the only logical thing a sports blogger can do… fix it. I’ve combined forces with Showman and Mac to bring you Lobshots Most Influential Athletes list. We’ll set the record straight on this. For good measure, we made it top 20, in no particular order.
A few notes…Yes, we recognize that we give multiple shoutouts to Major League, Sandlot and Teen Wolf. They are all well deserved. Ever met the guy that actually played the Wolf during the basketball scenes? Because it wasn’t Michael J. Fox. Have at it. Everybody thought we’d give the shaft to Nascar. Not true, baby Jesus. I just realized, btw, that this isn’t the first time I’ve ripped on Forbes. They are just well versed in suck, I guess.
Special props to Mac on this as he came up with most of these gems.
