1) Walter Payton - Admired this man on the playing field and off it. Probably one of the nicest professional athletes of his stature as he was a very willing signer in my experience. I recall an appearance he did at Menards where they announced just before the signing that he could only sign the provided photo...Payton saw how upset the crowd was and announced himself that he would happily sign everyone's outside item.

2) Michael Jordan - This guy was a God to me. He did things on the court that were inhuman....I watch highlights today and it still amazes how great this guy was. Of course, of the court, he wasn't that great about signing. Maybe in the 80s, but when I finally got around to asking him for an autograph, it was if I was asking for his first born son. As I got older, and attended several black tie events where he was present, even then, I was turned down. Despite my experiences in person with him, I still think he's the greatest basketball player to run the floor.

3) Ryne Sandberg - I grew up playing baseball and still play 12-inch softball to this day. Every kid wanted to wear #23 and I grew up a second baseman. He let his game do his talking...in person, a very quiet, private man. Good for autographs, but not much of a conversationalist in my experiences. Nonetheless, he was a role model for me.

4) Jeremy Roenick - He was the reason I started watching hockey in the 1990. One of my best friends in high school took me to a game, courtesy of his father's company, and I was in awe of the game and Roenick's skills. They went to the SC Finals and I was able to attend a game thanks to my friend. Ever since then, I was hooked on the sport. The first time I met Roenick was at my friend's restaurant, and he was really down to earth...and when he did a signing a few years back he remembered me. Will always be a favorite of mine.

5) Frank Thomas - Big Hurt was a beast when he was at bat. I grew up on the North side, but my uncle has season tickets for both the Cubs and White Sox and have been attending games since the 80s. For one of the biggest stars in baseball, this guy was super fan friendly. Signed autographs every game and was cordial with the fans. As you can see, I admire guys who admire their fans back.

Current Fave - Brian Urlacher - Yes, he's been the heart of the Bears defense for the past 12 years and one of the Monster's of the Midway, but I was lucky enough to win a contest to be his assistant at his football camp. This guy is one of the funniest guys I've met yet...he has a quick wit and was a super nice guy once we got to know each other. He gives me a hug every time I see him and always ask if I have anything for him to sign...sometimes even saying, "That's it?" Very lucky to have a relationship with this guy and because how he is personally, is my current favorite player.

Thanks for sharing Desi! Great post! I like that you added as to why those athletes are you favorite!


And even though I despise all things White Sox, I have the utmost respect for Frank Thomas!
