There was a recent thread where someone asked who the Michael Jordan of Board Gaming would be (the general consensus was Reiner Knizia). I was curious if there are any other parallels between various Game Designers or Publishers and famous athletes?

I'll start off with this one: Milton Bradley as Babe Ruth. Set a bunch of records way back when in a world very different to today's scene.

I had no idea Milton Bradley was an actual guy. I always figured it was a company named after two guys, like Price Waterhouse or McDonnell Douglas.

I thought he was more clearly Tim Tebow.
