    Who are your favorite two-sport athletes?

    Some that come to mind include Bo Jackson, Danny Ainge, Dave Winfield, Kirk Gibson, Bob Hayes, and Jeff Samardzija.

    I would have to say mine would have been Deion Sanders. He was a phenomenal cover man. And a darn good baseball player as well.

    Although I just saw Samardzija pitch on Saturday at Safeco, I can't put him in the same category as Bo Jackson.  Deion played longer but Bo had an impact on both the NFL and MLB. Deion's impact on baseball was minimal. It's really a shame Bo did not dedicate himself to baseball. He would have been a Hall of Famer (once he cut down on the strikeouts).
    Honorable mention to Bob Hayes and Dave Winfield.  Winfield was a guy who did not get the props he deserved during his playing career from either George or the fans. I'm guilty of it myself. I can't even count how many times he got booed at Yankee Stadium. It seemed every time Bob Shepard announced his name the crowd was 50-50 between cheering and boos.

    Jessica Ennis- good enough to be one of britains top hurdles but as a heptathlete she is awesome and Olympic champion. Why be good at two sports when you can do well at 8!!

    As I am more in to the game of billiards, my favorite players are from pool and snooker.
    I like Efren Reyes who is a famous and successful Filipino billiards player won over 60 tournaments in billiards.

    Ronnie O' Sullivan is my second famous athlete who plays snooker.
