There are athletes, that, when performing, you literally stop whatever it is you are doing to watch. If the Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera is in the batters box, you're glued to the television with anticipation. When the Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby is on the ice, you grab a seat to watch the magic he is about to weave with such grace and elegance, you swear everything around him was in slow motion. When the Miami Heat's LeBron James has the basketball, sitting down is not an option when he is about to do something on the court that has never been done before. From 1973 to 1986, when Ray Guy took the field for the Oakland Raiders, if you were fortunate enough to have the game televised in your area, you were always witnessing perfection. Who is Ray Guy, you ask?
Ray Guy was a punter. You heard right, a punter. He was the best in the business! The greatest at his position that the NFL has ever seen. He did one thing, and did it very well! So well in fact that in 1994, was named the punter on the NFL's 75th anniversary team. The Greatest.
