Good job by the 411 representing Moms, Dads and grandparents, plus all major sports and even some media figures. A very well-rounded group of selections by us, good job boys!🙂


I have to say putting family in is a really nice touch as this list would show you. Plus my list is going to have a very British flavor to it.

1: My Mom – She puts up with my dad and I fighting like cat and dog.
2: Ally McCoist – Glasgow Rangers soccer star, now assist manager.
3: Duncan Goodhew.
4: The Late Princess Diana.
5: Seb Coe.

I know its very British.

Jan in Glasgow.

Okay, here goes…
5. MC Hammer

4. Bespectled 3-time MLB All-Star Chris “Spuds” Sabo

3. Santa Claus (think about it: he is overweight, works one day a year, has unlimited toys)

2. Phil Collins

1. Jack Tripper (John Ritter’s character on Three’s Company. He got to live with 2 hot chicks and have wacky adventures. I’m only 26, so I mostly watched this show in syndication).

-Dan in Los Angeles

Dan, ponder this… does the name “Jack Tripper” just sound a little too much like “Jack T’ripper” to you? What do you think he was doing with those two girls??

Just wonderin’…



My mind. Blown.

-Dan in LA

Fave Five songs about Jack the Ripper, I think there is only one?

5. Spiderman

3. Joe Montana
2. Darth Vader
1. Wayne Gretzky (According to my parents, the first sentence I strung together was ‘He shoots. He scores!’)

Ryan in CA

I was thinking Morrissey (later covered by My Chemical Romance):

I’d rather listen to fantasy advice on an hour long show, but hey it is ok.

another fav 5 suggestion:

fav 5 people that you’d like to meet (dead, alive, real, fictional) in whatever context you’d like. IE, miniature golf w/Dracula or romantic dinner w/Cheetara (you know, the thundercats ho) you get the picture. Lots of room for creativity on this one.

Please STOP doing the fav 5 segments. Its killing the new format. It was ok when the show was an hour long, but now that is only 30min the fav 5 is a waste of time. Just do straight fantasy baseball talk PLZ!!! No disrespect but I don’t care and my friends that have listened to show don’t care what Casey Stern’s favorite snacks are? Im pleading with you guys I like your advice on fantasy baseball so lets just leave it at that.

I disagree.. I love the fav 5.. it makes the show more interesting.
