Lansing and East Lansing Have Produced a Lot of Pro-Athletes
Yesterday on the Mad Dog Show we were talking about all the professional athletes that have come from the Mid-Michigan area. There are many.
In media, Lansing and East Lansing are market 129. That means 129th city in the USA. If you have never thought of this, you will be amazed at how many there really are. This includes two professional wrestlers also. I think and talk about this often. I always miss one or two also. So, if I do, please feel free to add to our list. Let’s get this party started!
Of course first and foremost there is Earvin “Magic” Johnson Jr.
Then the Vincent brothers Jay and Sam.
You have the Miller hockey family, with Kelly, Kevin, Drew, Ryan and Kip.
Now, let’s get to it. John Smoltz, Matt Greene, Al Horford, Ben Poquette, Denzel Valentine, Brynn Forbes, Taylor Moten, Cooper Rush, DeMond Winston, Steve Maidlow, Randy Kinder, Jeff Brubaker, The “Sheik”, Sabu, Todd Martin, Cliff Foster, Roger Spag., Mushin Mohammed, Kristen Rasmussen, Reid Boucha, Allen Haller and Danton Cole.
I’m sure there could be a few more. Please add them if I missed someone. What’s funny is Flint, Michigan has at least 10-12 too. The professional Flintstones!
