The Stones, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, are widely considered one of the greatest bands of all time.
Could this be the band’s last tour? It’s hard to tell, but it could be. Like musical acts, athletes too have a shelf life.
Here are 5 athletes that you MUST see in person before it’s too late.
1. Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
Forget about his recent struggles. Kobe Bryant will go down as one of the top 10 basketball players of all time.
He has a ring for each finger, has appeared in 17 NBA All Star games, and is third on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
With injuries mounting and 19 NBA season behind him, time is running out.
Honorable Mention: Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett
2. Jeff Gordon, NASCAR
No. 24 is third on the all-time Cup wins list with 92 career wins. He also has the most wins in NASCAR’s modern era, including 6 wins at both Talladega and Daytona.
He announced that 2015 will be his last season. Get out to the track and enjoy one of NASCAR’s best ever.
Honorable Mention: Jimmie Johnson, Tony StewartREAD MORE: Chargers Finally Get Fans At SoFi, But Many Cheer For Dallas
3. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos
A 5-time MVP and 14-time Pro Bowl quarterback, Manning is simply one of the NFL’s greatest.
No one has thrown for more touchdown passes (530), or thrown for 4,000+ yards in more seasons (14). And if healthy, he’ll pass Brett Favre for the most passing yards in NFL history in 2015.
See it in person if you have the chance.
Honorable Mention: Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson
4. Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels
In each of his first 10 seasons, Pujols hit at least .300 with 30 homeruns and 100 RBIs. No one else has accomplished that feat.
With three MVPs, two World Series rings, 520 homeruns, and 9 All Star appearances — he’s simply one of the greatest hitters ever.
This season, he’ll surpass historical giants like Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle in many departments. That’s worth watching.
5. Roger Federer, Tennis
Federer holds several records of the Open Era. He’s won 17 Grand Slam singles titles and has held the No. 1 ranking for 302 weeks.
If not for the emergence of Rafael Nadal, these numbers would be significantly higher.
If your lucky enough to have the opportunity to watch the Swiss savant, do it. If somehow he and Nadal face off again, do whatever you can to witness history.
