A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

The other day would have been Roberto Clemente's 80th birthday, and in his honor, the Pittsburgh Pirates groundskeepers mowed his number into right field at PNC Park:



Clemente is the one sports figure whom I would most like to travel back in time and see in action, just once. Who is yours? (Assume you'd get to see yours do something representative of his or her greatness. You wouldn't be stuck going back to see Babe Ruth go 0-4 with two strikeouts and two week grounders to short.)

Clemente was my 2nd favorite baseball player, after Willie Mays. Still, I would have liked to have seen Wilt Chamberlain score 100 points, or Babe Ruth's called shot, or the 1936 Berlin Olympics with Jesse Owens...
