Give yourself a migraine with ESPN's "Rank the 25 best North American athletes over the last 25 years".

The link is apparently taking a while to load, so I'll just them here alphabetically.

Lance Armstrong
Larry Bird
Barry Bonds
Roger Clemens
Tim Duncan
Dale Earnhardt
John Elway
Wayne Gretzky
Mia Hamm
Eric Heiden
Rickey Henderson
Magic Johnson
Marion Jones
Michael Jordan
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Mario Lemieux
Sugar Ray Leonard
Carl Lewis
Dan Marino
John McEnroe
Joe Montana
Martina Navratilova
Shaquille O'Neal
Jerry Rice
Cal Ripken Jr.
Alex Rodriguez
Patrick Roy
Pete Sampras
Barry Sanders
Emmitt Smith
Lawrence Taylor
Mike Tyson
Serena Williams
Tiger Woods

For the record, I'd have to put Wayne Gretzky at #1... closely followed by Jordan, and then probably Rickey Henderson. After that, my brain hurts.

Also, thank you guys for your mp3 suggestions. I think I'm going the XP route.
