Who is the most popular sports icon in the world?

For 2009
As of 2009, the top 5 most popular sports icons in the world are as follows:

  1. Tiger Woods
  2. Roger Federer
  3. Yao Ming
  4. Michael Phelps
  5. David Beckham
The list is made from an average of many lists (basically, the average for most popular athlete in the world). Obviously, popularity changes very often. Thus, this list will change from year to year, possibly even month to month depending on how the athletes are doing.

The below answer is based from before 2009, and will not be as up-to-date.

:: David Beckham (World Soccer) - 4 votes
Without doubt, England captain David Beckham. He is the most searched for sports personality on the Internet and the most recognized non-politician in the world. Ask anyone in any soccer-playing country in the world - ie 99.9% of countries - for their heroes, and Beckham comes close to the top (especially with women...)

Michael Jordan (Basketball, USA) - 3 votes; spokesman for Nike and McDonald's, worldwide brands.

:: Tiger Woods (Golf, USA) - 2 votes

:: George Foreman (Boxing, USA) - owns grilling machine brand.

:: Muhammed Ali (Boxing, USA)

:: Ronaldo (World Soccer)

:: Michael Schumacher (Formula One)

:: Roger Federder (Tennis)

:: Wayne Gretzky (Hockey) - "the great one"

:: Usain Bolt (Track and Field)

I think it has to be Muhammad Ali. Beckham's fame and popularity is fading. I doubt if many people in the States would pick Schumacher out of a lineup.

What do the stickers on the college football helmets stand for?

The stickers on the helmets stand for something good that the player has done, such as a good play or a good sack, or a nice show of leadership. The more stickers a player has the better the player.

Some schools, such as Georgia, give white bones for athletic plays and black bone for academic achievements.

Ohio State players get buckeye leaf stickers for making great plays, starting on the back of the left side. Some players do so much on the field they have stickers on the right side of their helmets.

Of the remaining 39 players, no more than 19 may be imports. Therefore the maximum amount of imports allowed on game day rosters is 22.

What does it mean in football when you keep possession?

keeping possesion is that your team has the ball and has it under control


Possession of the ball is of critical importance in a football game. A team can lose possession of the ball through a fumble recovered by the opposing team, a pass intercepted by the opposing team, by punting the ball to the opposing team, or by failing to advance the ball ten yards in three plays from scrimmage. Keeping possession occurs, for example, when a team recovers its own fumble, when a pass originally ruled an interception is overruled on a replay, when a penalty against the opposing team nullifies a turnover, etc.
