I was thinking this morning on the drive to work, who is the most famous English athlete of all time?
It is actually a real stumper.
I thought of Gordon Banks, and then Harold Abrahams, and finally Daly Thompson.
After a while I realized that the answer to this riddle wrapped inside an enigma is probably Beckham.
David Beckham is the English Babe Ruth or Michael Jordan, the most famous athlete in English History. And he is certain to get even more famous now that he is playing in a major media market like Los Angeles.
Did I miss anyone? Is there someone you Englanders consider more famous? (And don't try to slip in any Scots or Welshman.)
