Hey I have noticed a lot of interest in that video (and rightly so since it is the greatest video montage I have ever seen).

I was thinking, especially since I don't know many myself, maybe a lot of people don't know who some of the athletes are or what events are portrayed.

So I was thinking we could do a list of each. Basically I wanna do the Athlete (if the video specifically focuses on one), the event (superbowl, penant, olympics, etc), date (at least the year), and possibly the context (example: Jackie Robinson, there is definitely a context that makes it more amazing).

Keep in mind I am pretty young (20) so I do not reckognize the old ones. Also, while I'm a big hockey fan, my knowledge of other sports is limited so please don't make fun of me if I get some of these completely wrong.

I put Black & White for the sake of making it easier to locate the clip.
So here is what I got so far:

Okay, naturally right after i posted that I remembered a lot of the names.

The Penn State coach is Joe Paterno
The Swimmer is Mark Spitz, won 7 gold medals in won Olympics
Nolan Ryan is in fact the Strikeout leader, with 5714.
Ruths homerun record was 714 and Aaron would score, what, 765? somethign like that
On the Bruins player "trip" I know that the rule is if you are parrallel to the ground it is a dive.

Anyways Hope that helped SOMEBODY and post any corrections or additional info!
