6 Other Sports Stars We'd Love to See Mimic 'The Match'
By Emily Adams
'The Match' II was one of the most entertaining events we've seen since the sports world shut down. Between Tom Brady's wardrobe malfunction and Peyton Manning's trash talk, it was fun from start to finish, and we can't stop thinking about other rivals we want to see go head to head on the golf course.
3. Sidney Crosby vs. Claude Giroux
The civil war in Pennsylvania between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins comes to life in Crosby and Giroux these days. They've had a fierce rivalry for years, and they're used to swinging hockey sticks at each other, so why not try golf clubs? Hockey fans would love to see the battle between the two cities decided once and for all.
2. Megan Rapinoe vs. Sue Bird
This one might be a homewrecker, but Bird and Rapinoe are a sports power couple, and it would be so much fun to see these two stars face off. Bird is a standout in the WNBA, and Rapinoe is the face of the USWNT, so they'll never have the opportunity to play against each other otherwise. The golf course is the perfect place to make it happen.
1. Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James
There's only one way to settle the biggest debate in sports. James and Jordan may have played basketball in different eras, but a head-to-head golf match puts them on a perfectly even playing field — literally. It might not be an indicator of basketball skills, but at this point we'd watch MJ and LeBron play against each other in just about anything.
