Comments:
I do not understand how all those people could end up on the same list???

Sir Frederick Banting. Nobel prize winner and discoverer of insulin AND Wayne Gretzky. Strange bedfellows!
 
I was just thinking the same thing. I knew Banting would be on the list, but Don Cherry? Really? I mean I love a good butterfly collar on a man with no neck as much as the next person, but I am thinking that they really don't fit into the same category- maybe I'm wrong though- just a thought.
