I think this bee is waving at Kim.
So the theme for Ten on Tuesday this week is 10 Favorite Athletes. Seriously? I’m not sure if I can even name 10 athletes, never mind have 10 favorites. But okay, it’s Tuesday and this is what we do.
1. Candace Parker. She used to play for my beloved Lady Vols and now she’s in the WNBA.
2. Carl Yastrzemski. My nana loved the Red Sox and she especially loved Yaz. I grew up hearing about how great he was so of course he’s on my list.
3. Joe Namath. I am no fan of football but he was the most famous football player of my childhood.
4. Bobby Orr. The Boston Bruins won two Stanley Cups with Orr on the team. Again, my childhood memories include lots of talk of Bobby Orr.
5. Larry Bird. The Celtics were huge around here in the 80s. I never got to go to a game back then but I sure wish I had.
6. Kevin McHale. See #5.
7. Ted Williams. My father was a huge fan of Ted Williams. So is Dale and so is my father-in-law. Hence, he makes the list.
8. Diana Taurasi. She played for UConn the first season I started watching Women’s College Basketball. I wanted Hannah to grow up and play just like her. Ha ha ha.
9.Mary Lou Retton. 1984 Summer Olympics. Need I say more?
10. Muhammad Ali. He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.
This was not an easy list for me to compile. How come they didn’t ask for a list of my 10 favorite knitters? Now that would have been a cake walk!
