Jahvid is among best Bests

Mrs. WatchDog enjoyed Jahvid Best's career-high 163 rushing yards Monday night more than the rest of the family, for fantasy league purposes.

But naturally everyone in the family pulls for our favorite Lion, who is closing fast on Travis for No. 3 on my all-time list of sports Bests.

George, the former Manchester United footballer, is No. 1, of course, followed by Neil Best of the Irish national rugby team.

After that, the pickings get a little slim. There was Karl, who went 5-6 as a pitcher for the Mariners in the 1980s, and of course Art, who rushed for 31 yards as a Bear in the 1970s before finishing his career playing one game for the Giants in 1980.

Other than Jahvid, the best up-and-coming Best is Newcastle United striker Leon.

Have I forgotten anyone significant? Did Pete ever play sports before playing for the Beatles?
