    Jim Thorpe is a historical/sentimental choice for Oklahoma but I would have guessed Mickey Mantle.

    Danny Ainge in Oregon? Is that suppose to be a joke.

    Jim McMahon in Utah? I doubt he is fondly remembered in Utah with his later comments. Also he was born in New Jersey.

    Dwayne Wade in Illinois?

    Whole thing is silly....

    Ever wondered which sportsperson is most revered in each state of the United States? Top US Casinos has uncovered the top star born in each state to reveal which athlete steals the show the most back home.

    No women made the list? Or, did I overlook her?

    Well the choice from Minnesota, Kevin Garnett, was born and raised in South Carolina.
    The choice for Wisconsin, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, was born and raised in New York.
    I'm sure that there are others states where a basketball player happened to play in the state as a professional, but has no other connection to the state. Very lazy.

    Only two tracksters on that map. I'm mildly surprised that Joan Benoit is not the most popular from Maine.

    Couldn't see it till I went to incognito [CTRL-SHIRT-N].
    Interesting solution, but a globe is best!

    You're correct but pretty amazing to think you're looking at a barren planet, close-up, that is millions of miles (or km) away from us. Amazing science to do that.

    Above the Arctic Circle north of Norway, there is a Channel 1270 playing American music from the pre WWII era.
