If you could be any professional athlete for a day, who would it be and why?:  Being anyone of the Members of Macho Row (Darren Daulton, John Kruk, Mitch Williams, Lenny Dykstra and Dave Hollins) from the ’93 Phillies.  These guys were the nucleus of that memorable club, but besides that they had a lot of fun and won a lot of games and played to win every single day.  From when I was 9 years old until I played in college I always had written in side my hat, “Whatever It Takes”.  Which was their motto for that year, put the team ahead of you and do whatever it takes to win!  Baseball is supposed to be fun to play and fun to watch and those guys turned me into the Phillies Fan I am today!

If you were to be a professional athlete for a day who would it be and why? Joe Namath 1968/1969 season.
