    Re: Baltimore's Mt. Rushmore

    Doesn't matter if he's douche or if he has embraced Baltimore...which, from what I've seen of him, he has. He's from Baltimore area and this is a Baltimore Mt Rushmore, right? Or did I misread something, because I'm pretty sure I didn't. Being the most decorated Olympic athlete ever is a far bigger achievement than anything any of the people in that picture have done.

    Easy there guy.

    This is entirely make believe, but I would think it would be similar to the Raven's ROH, where being accomplished is only part of the requirement.

    More important than his well documented douchery (I went to school with him, I'm personally familiar with his douchery) is the fact that Phelps is FROM Baltimore, but didn't compete REPRESENTING Baltimore. He's Team USA, not Team Baltimore.

    They definitely need a statue of Ray Lewis beside Johnny U.


    Over at Camden Yards they should build a Cal Ripken statue, Earl Weaver, and Brooks Robinson.

    They better build the Ray statue NEXT to Johnny U not at some other entrance to the stadium. Those 2 Baltimore legends need to stand together.

    I can't see any other reason why they WOULDNT put Ray's statue next to Johnny U. It should absolutely be in that spot.

    Re: Baltimore's Mt. Rushmore

    I came into this thread saying Brooks better be on it.....
    Am in agreement those are the big 4

    Other names tossed out I can roll with also...
    and add Jim Palmer, Lenny Moore, Arthur (Fatso) Donovan

    My cred? if you say Bobby Boyd, I have to ask which one, the Oriole 1st Baseman or the Colts DB?

    Those guys were all iconic, but IMO there are only 4-5 guys who deserve a statue in Baltimore.

    Johnny U, Ray Lewis, Cal Ripken, Brooks Robinson, and Earl Weaver.

    Jim Palmer should get some consideration too.

    This is probably a generational thing. I saw Brooks play the last few years of his career, but grew up on stories on how incredible he was at 3rd base. In the 70's and 80's, he was essentially Mr. Oriole. Other than maybe Cal Ripken, there is nobody that represents the Orioles more than Brooks Robinson, and that includes Jim Palmer and Frank Robinson.

    I don't want to downplay Phelps because he is an all time great athelete, but I don't think he is as iconic to Baltimore as those other people. I don't live in Baltimore anymore, and I talk sports with people that I meet. Over the years i have had a ton of people say "You are from Baltimore, Cal Ripken is awesome", or "Ray Lewis is a GOAT "(or overrated depending on the conversation). The old timers know Johnny U. I don't think I have ever had anybody say to me: " You are from Baltimore? I love Michael Phelps!"

    Two other people I would submit for the 2nd or 3rd mountain would be Sugar Ray Leonard and Pam Shriver.
