I had a tough time picking out a title for this post. In the end, I settled for what you see above. I was trying to figure out how to put into words that the 5 guys you are about to see each possess a certain ability that is unique and seemingly superhuman. In other words, if you made a comic book this athlete’s special power would be focused on this ability.
I’ll admit it’s a little cheesy, but it’s undeniable. The guys that are mentioned in this post all, in some way or another, have a uniquely special talent that separates them from other guys in their sport.
Alright I’d tried, take a look……
5. Dwight Howard – Orlando Magic – Flight
I think this first one should come as a surprise to no one. Flight or athleticism or whatever you would like to call it, for Dwight Howard’s size the man can jump ridiculously high. He’s a freak of nature.
2. Mike Stanton – Florida Marlins – Power
I really hope that readers caught a glimpse of this guy at some point this year. The man drops absolute BOMBS. He doesn’t just hit home runs, he annihilates the ball. I’ll put him up next to Prince, or whoever else. He kills the ball.
3. Usain Bolt – Olympic Sprinter – Speed
This picture is intentionally blurry FYI. Get it?? Fastest man in the world? Fastest man ever? Usain Bolts speed is superhuman.
2. Justin Verlander – Detroit Tigers – Right Arm
Trivia time: Who has the most innings pitched in baseball? Who has the most strikeouts? Who has a microscopic ERA and WHIP? What gets Verlander the nod here is that when you watch him pitch he’ll be in the 9th inning dialing it up in the high 90′s after 120 pitches. It’s amazing.
1. Derek Jeter – New York Yankees – Mojo
I don’t even have enough time to list all of Derek Jeter’s ex-girlfriends. Holy sh%t he’s got a list men dream of. Probably the best superhuman trait if you ask me!
