Dinner and a Movie?
Favorite dinner guests: With whom would the U.S. team most like to break bread? The winner was Jesus Christ, who got 38 votes. (We trust he won't mind that the fare will not be vegetarian.)
3 Michael Jordan
4 John F. Kennedy
5 Martin Luther King Jr.
6 Winston Churchill
7 Albert Einstein
8 Bill Clinton
9= Dennis Rodman
Most admired athlete: Jordan finished barely ahead of fourth-place JFK as a chosen dinner guest, but the Chicago Bulls superstar was an overwhelming choice as favorite athlete (15%). At least one competitor from almost every event voted for him. Triple jumper Mike Conley admires MJ so much that his children are named Michael and Jordan.
Most admired people: Surprisingly, or maybe not, few athletes would choose to dine with their parents, but Mom and Dad are the most admired, with 295 votes (45%). Ruthie Bolton (basketball) singles out her father. Small wonder (page 53).
Soccer player Cindy Parlow wants to dine with God with God and Harrison Ford. In that Order.
