Top 10 Athletes Succeeding After 40

Look, I didn't even know other sports existed, but apparently they do.

http://www.askmen.com/top_10/sports/...ter-40_10.html

At first I got really pissed, but then I read the comment section and became instatnly better. At least if "askmen" won't recognize the legitimacy of MMA, the people that go there do.

Where is Randy Couture? He became a champion at possibly the most grueling sport in the world after he turned 40.

No Couture = Not a real List

I was just thinking the same thing. Joke of a list without Bernard Hopkins and Randy Couture...
Who else do you think the list is missing? (Not only in MMA.) I figured if they missed Randy, they have to be missing a lot of others.

I honestly don't think they're missing Randy /shrug

MMA at this stage in its progression is not the most grueling sport, there is no most grueling sport, thats stupid, its based on the effort athletes place into it. As much as I like MMA i hate the bias towards what it is.

Best baseball pitcher ever to play was left off the list.

Satchel Paige. Most of his accomplishments came after the age of 40.

John Stockton regular with triple doubles in the playoffs after the age of 40.

Roger Staubach

Jeannie Longo

Martina Nvratilova

How about f*cking Laird Hamilton



In my opinion though...pitchers nowadays (i.e. Jamie Moyer) should not even be mentioned since they compete once a week at most...the guy pitched in like 30 games over a an entire season including the playoffs. Not too demanding if you ask me. And golfers, seriously...don't even include that because that is just retarded. I played golf. I could and did play 36 holes a day and never fatigued...any sport you can play better while high is not really physically demanding and therefore should not be mentioned with greatest athletes after 40.

I think they just did that b/c they know a lot of their audience/readership is golf-crazed and would be pissed off if there wasn't a golfer on the list.

Unless you walk and carry your clubs, golf isn't "grueling" in the least, otherwise there would be far less fat f*cks hacking out there and ripping up big divots that they don't replace. Don't even get me started.

There are 4 athletes on that list:

Howe
Blanda
Foreman
Chelios

The other six are guys who participate in paid hobbies. Baseball, Nascar and Golf? I guess AskMen caters exclusively to the 50 and up redneck crowd.

At least if you're gonna put baseball, include someone like Julio Franco who is (amd be is, I mean was) an everyday player.

Stockton shouldn't be up there ZZ, he only played a couple months in his final season after he was 40.

I stopped at the very first entry of Richard Petty on a list that is supposed to be talking about "athletes". If that's a choice then the rest of the list can only get worse IMO.

I told you guys, they're just pandering to their audience.

There have to be other athletes who made significant accomplishments after 40. Cal Ripken? Brett Fav..........re?

I can't think of any others and the lord and master (and sports lifeline) is working outside today and will not be reachable by phone.

They should have added Nina Hartley- the chick is over 50 and still doing porn- that's athleticism, good genetics, plus thousands and thousands of times imitating a Krispy Kreme donut. That's pure heart, dedication and hardwork.

Imitating a Krispy Kreme? What?

Clearly I haven't read nearly enough mens' publications, and being behind enemy lines is apparently not providing me with sufficient information on important topics like this.
