and as it happens there is a local Ohioan there who is supporting you and you want to acknowledge that.
You decide to call him "the greatest athlete of the 20th Century"
That means you consider him a better athlete than
_ Jim Thorpe
- Jesse Owens, who attended Ohio State
- Michael Jordan
- Edson di Nascimento (Pele - greatest soccer player ever)
- Babe Ruth
- Jim Brown, who after all played in Cleveland, was also a great Lacrosse player
- Jackie Robinson
- Jackie Joyner-Kersey
- Johnny Bench - played in Cincy and possibly the greatest catcher
- Oscar Robertson who played most of his career in Cincy
and those are only people who played in the US (Pele for a while with the NY Cosmos)
Remember, to win Ohio you need to win white working class voters, especially men
So, whom do you think is the greatest athlete of the 20th Century?
Yes, that guy. Who played golf. Who was very, very good.
Hey Mitt, you do realize that most white working-class men don't play golf, don't you?
