As long as sports have been around comebacks have been romanticized. Many fallen heroes past transgressions are forgotten when they return to do battle again.
In some cases, our fallen heroes have regressed and returned more than once. Andre Agassi, Michael Jordan, and Muhammad Ali are examples of athletes that have left their sports and returned with success multiple times.
Their perseverance, determination and grit are why all of these athletes are the legends of their sports. They go as far back as Maximus Decimus Meridius' comeback during Roman times.
This week, the comeback will be the dominant discussion in the news and on sports talk shows everywhere. Baseball makes its return for the 2010 season and, of course, how will Tiger do in Augusta?
