The world of sports is chock full of men who are just plain intimidating. Sports are, after all, just like any other competition, where intimidation is one of the major keys to victory.
If you were to sit back and try to rattle off a list of the most intimidating athletes of all-time, I suspect that names like Lawrence Taylor, Bill Russell, Muhammad Ali and maybe Randy Johnson would all come to mind. Either way, it's a good bet that most, if not all, of the people you would think of would be quite big in stature.
But hey, little guys can be intimidating too. Manny Pacquiao stands at just 5'6" and he's the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. Nate Robinson is just 5'9," and he can dunk over anyone. Bob Sanders is just 5'8," and he's a former Defensive Player of the Year.
As you will see, there are many more little guys that are and were just plain bad-asses—and it is to them that we pay homage today.
