As to the successful players, I doubt if they are butt hurt about that comment. I see DHK's sig as a nod to Ben Hogan or Yogi Berra.

“Ben Hogan said, ‘Golf is a game of luck, the more I practice, the luckier I get.’ The harder you work, the luckier you are. I was 33 years old before I ever went to Washington and New York, 42 before I won my first campaign. (complete quote provided because I didn't realize Ben was a late bloomer)

Yogi: Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical".

No Ken means no UTOC. No UTOC means Brad is just another good player.
No UToC means Brad is just another good ToC winner + M$M winner = GOAT contender for pre-sky's-the-limit-rule-change contestants.

If you had given me that clue nearly any other day, then I would've recognized it instantly as Yogi Berra. But according to that game's thread, I had nothing because I was stuck on comedic actors and getting nowhere.

I missed it too. I guess I just wasn't checking the right part of my brain space. I have to think if the category had been SPORTS OBITUARIES, we'd have been all over it. Not that the clue was terribly tough as is. We just whiffed on it.
