    Absolutely Ripken.

      Ripkin as well because it's just so many games.

          Yeah, the pressure of being a infielder is far greater then being a wuartervack in the nfl, how the whole offense rallies around you....yeah...and the collisions and you run play to play.......so grueling......

          Are you people serious?

            The sheer amount of games played day after day in baseball allows the possibility for more injuries. Both are impressive but I gotta go with Ripken.

              Thats mainly because its unheard of to play that many games in a row in the NFL, I have to go with farve simply because even on plays they dont get sacked they are really likely to take a hit. Anyone who has played both sports realize that your body is sore after a football game for days after every game.

                  Possibly not steroids, but almost certainly HGH.

                    I would not be surprised at all if he used some kind of PED. The vast majority of players that have did it to avoid injury and DL time.

                    Even so, I'd still be amazed by his record.

                        Remember when Ripken was in jail for trying to beat up Kevin Costner because he found out he was having an affair with his wife, and Peter Angelos got that night's game cancelled by claiming the stadium's lights were malfunctioning so it wouldn't break Ripken's streak? I love urban legends.

                          Besides, the real answer is Billy Ripken's "Fuck Face" card.

                              When you're dealing with long term endurance and longevity, HGH is almost always the drug of choice. I have some older friends who take it by physician's prescription and I am amazed at some of the age reversing effects it can have.

                                Neither one impresses me because both men insisted on playing when they weren't of any use to their team just to have an individual record.

                                Playing with broken fingers as a QB isn't "tough" or "brave" it's detrimental to your team. People who applaud these guys are the same assholes who come into work when they're deathly ill with a 103 degree fever, sneezing all over everyone.

                                STAY THE FUCK HOME!
