    What makes a great athlete?

    To some, greatness can be measured in the number of championship teams an athlete has been part of. 

    Others feel personal records are the mark of athletic immortality, while others, especially for the purpose of this video slideshow, feel being the subject of a comedy sketch that parodies you and some of your most memorable moments is the mark that says you are amongst an elite group of athletes.
