Famous sports fans (Part IV)

13 Mar

This is it, folks. This is the final installment of our “Famous Sports Fans” series. Well, that’s not necessarily true. If we’re pressed for time and need a quick post, this franchise can easily be resurrected. We didn’t even pull out Dwight Schrute (Scranton-Wilkes Barre Red Barons) or Captain Jack Sparrow (Pittsburgh Pirates) yet.

Part IV: The pilot of the Millennium Falcon, a fast-food eating blob of purple, the coolest superhero ever and a real American hero round out the list.


Part III: A Friday night mainstay on ABC’s TGIF lineup, the coolest guy at Bayside High School, the Yankees’ worst employee ever and the host of California’s wildly popular talk show, “Wake Up, San Francisco.”


Part II: This installment includes royalty, the king of observational
humor, a dude who wears Coke-bottle lenses and a cartoon dad who only
has two strands of hair.


Part I: From the man who scored four touchdowns in one game for the Polk High Panthers in the 1966 city championship against Andrew Johnson High to the guy who made stupid animal grunts while breaking machines with Al Borland, here are some famous sports fans The Max found in the vault (also known to some as “The Internets”).

    Fear not, Donnie. Seinfeld and Costanza are schedule to appear in the next installment. You beat us to the punch. Thanks for calling us out though. We need that from time to time.

    No, no! I’m terribly sorry for giving up the next entry. That’s not what I was looking to do :/ I was just trying to sneak some New York Mets credit on a Yankees YES Network blog :p! You guys going to be at the June 12th game? I believe that might be the only time I visit Yankee Stadium this season, although I’ve been thinking about including one more trip.

    Obviously Tim’s film career has mirrored the Lions’ success. How ironic.

    I went a couple of years ago to the Cleveland Indian’s vs Tampa Bay Rays season ending series and got a Drew Carey bobblehead.
    It sots on my television stand proudly with my Omar Vizquel bobblehead and the Rays collectibles. It is one of my favorite collectibles because it is comedian Drew Carey.

    I know they are not icons, but John Cena is a big Rays fan since moving here from Boston. Nothing wrong with stealing a Red Sox fan.

    Where is Larry King? He is a big Dodger fan and a season ticket holder. Oh, there are more Dodger fans but I like Larry King.
    Check out my pic with him at Camelback Ranch
