    Pick any event in the Olympics. I don't care if it lasts an an indelible memory. I just want to be the best in that amateur world.

    I'll have to start calling you Carlos. Or White Feather.

    P.S. I was going to pick that, too.

    The Fed Ex Cup, because it would mean I’d be about $12,000,000 richer and probably Player of the Year.

    I don't know, this is a good question.

    I think Super Bowl HC at first but that is not really individual.

    I'll say my final answer is UFC World fighting champion, and I'm not even into that stuff. Just to be baddest man in world would be awesome.

    It would also be pretty cool to throw a perfect game in the World Series game 7.

    And on the other side of that - to be the batter that won the game with a grand slam with two outs and bases loaded with team down by three runs in the ninth inning.

    My bad-while watching the entire final table broadcast , the announcers advertised the winner's share at $10M, but I did see in a CNN interview with the winner (John Cynn) received $8.8 M but I am not sure how much tax was held out. Sorry.

    The Derby? Really? Well, different strokes for different folks I guess, but horse racing would have never crossed my mind. Like said above, seems to me that's all about the horse. Anywho, I'm thinking the US Open golf championship...with the option of changing my answer. But year for year, it's generally the hardest golf tournament to win and the most prestigious in many peoples eyes. The Open is an older tournament of course, but the US open is usually much tougher. World wide, winning the Tour de France would probably be more prestigious and bring more fame and money, and though I'm no bike racing fan I might make that my top pick as it's just so hard to win and such a world event.
