Jordan, Gretzky, Tiger…Phelps?Posted: August 13, 2008
What do all these men have in common? They’re winners.
Their names define what it means to compete and have the will to win. The mere mention of their name connotes a sense of domination in their respective field. Their intensity is hardly matched by any of their competitors. In our modern language their names have become viable substitutes for adjectives like great, competitive, legendary, and dominant. And we’re constantly looking for the next great one. The next Jordan? The next Gretzky? The next Tiger?
So what about Phelps? Has he earned his way into this elite league of names? I think so.
he’s so hot right now.
