Who is your favorite sports star of all time? Now I’ve got myself thinking.

I remember growing up in the day of Joe Namath. Being a Minnesota Twins fan, I could make a list from the era of Harmon, Tony and Rod.

My life has been dedicated to racing, so Richard Petty and others are going thru my mind. But enough about what I think.

Let’s see what America had to say. And you see if your favorites made the list.

He may not have been on a basketball team for a decade, but Michael Jordan is still considered America’s favorite sports star, a position he held throughout the 1990s, according to the annual Harris Poll. For the fourth year in a row, tennis phenom Serena Williams is the favorite female sports star. So, who’s hot and who’s not in the world of sports?
