Who Do You Want to Watch Live When They Play Their Last Game?

Great topic, unfortunately I'm old and almost all my favorite athletes are retired.
  1. Tom Brady
    Hard to not respect the guy, I would have listed Peyton Manning here as well.
  2. Aaron Rodgers
    Because I'm a Bears fan I would love to see his last game be one that leaves him laying on the field, having just been knocked out of the playoffs while the Bears celebrate the NFC title on Lambeau Field around him. 🖕🏼
  3. Mike Trout
    Could be one of the all-time greats, hope he stays healthy.
  4. Miguel Cabrera
    Same reasoning as Aaron Rodgers - hope to see him in his last AB after striking out and the White Sox celebrating on the mound winning the ALCS. Dude can RAKE though.
  5. Alex Rodriguez
    Mostly for the spectacle of it, I imagine it'll be a real circus. Would have loved to have been at Jeter's last game (watched him play in HS), couldn't have scripted that any better).
  6. LeBron James
    An all-time great, I feel blessed to have seen both his and Michael Jordan's careers in my lifetime.
  7. Kobe Bryant
    Same.
  8. Henrik Zetterberg
    Great player, would love to be in the building seeing him raise the Cup after his last game....
  9. Pavel Datsyuk
    Same. They should go out together raising Lord Stanley's Cup.
  10. Jaromír Jágr
    Leading all-time point scorer among active NHL players. Third all-time on NHL's career goals list. At 44, he's shown no indication of retiring any time soon.

  11. Messi
    I'm not a Barca fan, but he is a once-in-a-lifetime athlete. Current football trends indicate that his last game will probably be in China or MLS, so I have a decent chance of making it.

  12. Michael Phelps I am sooo excited to see him swim again this summer. The Sports Illustrated interview with him said he is training more seriously than he has in the past.

  13. Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey
    I'd love for this battery to play together their whole careers. But I was at MadBum's debut (got called up from AAA to fill in for Lincecum. The debut was not great but knew he had something special) so it would be remarkable to be at his last. And may Buster play forever but if he doesn't, I wanna see that sweet swing one last time.

    I got to see this warrior's last race as it happened to be in Colorado at the 2014 USA Pro Challenge. He was famous for his grit and hopeless attacks and the selfless ways he'd bury himself for his teammates.
