"I loved watching (Brett) Favre and I love watching Aaron Rodgers. Hank Aaron is known around the world. I'm honored to be included with them."
Ranked from 1 - 10, Eric Heiden tops the list of the 10 Wisconsin-based athletes. Read the Heiden article here and see the rest of the list. FYI: During the 1980 Winter Olympics, Heiden became the only athlete in the history of speed skating to have won all five events in a single Olympic tournament and the only one to have won a gold medal in all events.
And he's from Madison, Wisconsin. So there.
(SPOILER ALERT! Brett Favre (1996) finished #4, ahead of Aaron Rodgers.)
