TOP 10 ATHLETES WHO COULD FORM A TEAM OF NAVY SEALS
10. BROCK LESNAR Ultimate Fighter. Long before he became
a heavyweight champion in the UFC, Lesnar was a gifted
wrestler who won the 2000 NCAA individual championship.
He also attempted to make the Minnesota Vikings as a free-agent.
Lesnar is 6'3 and 280lbs with about 8% body fat. He is one mean
dude, who would have no problem parachuting in behind
9. SERENA WILLIAMS Tennis player. The only female to
make the team, Williams is a freight train in tennis shoes.
Big, strong, fast, and brutally tough. In the U.S Open two
years ago, Williams threatened to tear the head off a linesman
and shove the ball down her neck. She was raised in Compton,
Ca, so you know she can handle herself.
8. DANNY WOODHEAD Football player, New England Patriots.
The Patriots all-purpose man is 5-foot nothing, and 170lbs soaking
wet. He's pound-for-pound, inch-for-inch, the toughest player in
the NFL. Quick, agile, and mobile, Woody would excel in ground
combat and squeezing through tight spaces.
7. CAM NEWTON Football player, Carolina Panthers. The youngest
member of this team, Newton has the body of a hummer and
runs like a Ferrari. He's 6'5", and 250lbs of twisted steel and can
cover 40 years in 4.5 seconds. Newton is used to covert operations.
He played at some junior college you've never heard of before going to
Auburn. Newton has the guts of a burglar, stealing a laptop while
a freshman at Florida. Plus, the kid laughs off pressure.
Despite being caught in the cross-hairs of a pay-for-play scandal
at Mississippi State and being the most scrutinized player in recent
college history, Newton won the Heisman Trophy and led the Tigers
to the national championship.
6. DUNCAN KEITH Hockey player, Chicago Black Hawks. No team
is complete without a hockey player. Tough, fast, and physical, Keith
became a legend when he took a puck in the mouth in Game 4 of
the 2010 Western Conference finals. Keith hardly flinched after losing
seven teeth. That's right SEVEN TEETH! Think about that for a second.
The guy was spitting chicklets and he returns minutes later like nothing
ever happened. Keith won the 2010 Norris Trophy as the leagues
outstanding defenseman. Would excel at hand-to-hand combat.
5. NICK SCHUYLER Lone survivor after the boat he was in capsized
75 miles off the coast of Florida in March of 2009. Schuyler, a former
football player at the University of South Florida, spent 43 hours in
frigid waters before being rescued. Three other men, including two
NFL players drowned and were never found.
4. DEAN KARNAZES You probably haven't heard of Karnazes, but he's
the fittest man in America. He an ultra-marathon runner who once did
50 marathons in 50 consecutive days! That's 1,310 miles. Talk about
will and mental toughness. In 2004, Karnazes won the Badwater
Ultra-marathon, which is a 135-mile race through Death Valley in July
Temperatures surpassed the 120 degree mark. Karnazes has run more
than 100,000 miles since his 30th birthday. This dude is sick!
3. MICHAEL VICK Football player, Philadelphia Eagles. He's elusive,
tough, and lightning quick. You can't catch what you can't see, and the
enemy would have a hard time capturing Vick. Vick is mentally tough
after spending nearly two years in prison and the man can take a hit.
He'd rather be hit by a heat-seeking missile like Troy Palomalu than
slide like Mark Sanchez. I know what you're saying, "the guy is a dirt
bag for what he did to all those dogs", but he's paid his price and he'd
make a great SEAL.
2. ARON RALSTON Mountain climber and subject of the movie,
"127 Hours". Ralston went hiking in Blue John Canyon and got his
arm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Ralston was stranded for
five days and survived by rationing his food supply and drinking
his own urine. You read that right. He drank his own urine to survive.
Anybody who does that can be a Navy SEAL, no problem.
Ralston also survived an avalanche in his hiking career and became
the first person to climb all 53 of Colorado's mountains of over
14,000 feet, solo in the dead of winter. Hello!
1. DICK HOYT Triathlete. Hoyt,71, didn't start running until he was
37 and has completed 86 marathons, 28 of which where of the
Boston variety. He's also done 240 triathlons, including 7 that
were Ironman distance. Oh yeah, he's done 1042 events, all with
his son, who has cerebral palsy. Hoyt rides a bike with his son
in a special seat in front of the bike. When Hoyt gets into the water,
he puts his son in a boat and pulls him. Then pushes his wheelchair
during the run. Team Hoyt has crossed the country, completing the
3,300 mile trek in 45 days. Hoyt is man of mental toughness and
incredible will, who has a giant heart.
COMMANDER OF SPECIAL OPS. Who needs Sergeant Hulka
when you can have Bill Belichick? This disciplined, cold-blooded
football coach, would make a great leader of this Navy SEAL team.
He shows no emotion, is detail-oriented, and doesn't play favorites.
Belichick is a great tactician who can make adjustments on the fly.
If a man goes down, his response would be, "It is what it is. The next
guy has to step up."
