The Unbeatable Streak

Brad HannonContributor IDecember 4, 2009

There are many sports feats that are considered legendary. John Wooden and UCLA's 7 consecutive championships and 88 game winning streak is among the greatest. Joe Dimaggio's 56 game hitting streak will also be hard to beat. Usain Bolt's current 9.58 100 meter sprint is another. Cal Ripken's 2,632 consecutive games played is also phenominal.

Enter Brett Favre. Favre is currently the QB for the Minnesota Vikings.

I remember Favre from his days at Southern Mississippi. I was first introduced to Brett Favre on September 8, 1990. Favre led Southern Miss to a comeback victory over Alabama. Alabama coach Gene Stallings said, "You can call it a miracle or a legend or whatever you want to. I just know that on that day, Brett Favre was larger than life." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brett_Favre)

Favre went on to be drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 1991 and had a lackluster rookie season. He ended up with the fledgling Packers in 1992 and the rest, as they say, IS HISTORY. He led the Packers to two Super Bowls, winning one.

To make a long story very short, he has started in 302 consecutive games. Guess what? This streak is still going! Good luck beating this dude and his streak.

There could be mucho more thing said about this streak, but if you are a true sports fan, a true football fan, YOU KNOW JUST HOW TOUGH THIS STREAK WILL BE TO CONQUER!

Did I mention that this streak is ongoing?  In a sport where you can't depend on individual players from week to week, Favre refuses to be benched.  Reckon he's tough?!

Out of all the aforementioned "streaks", I'm putting my money on FAV-RA!
