What one of your favorite records do you think will never be broken in each sport?

MLB: Cy Young s 511 wins will never be broken the way the game is played today.

NBA: Wilts streak of 50 plus points will never be topped nor will his 100 point game.

NFL: Brett Favre consecutive starting streak is just amazing in my opinion.

NHL: Wayne Gretzky and his assists record.

Notable mention would be Lance Armstrong.

Myself, I really think that Sadaharu Oh home run world record, having hit 868, is one that will still last the test of time.

Another staggering stat is Cy Youngs 749 Complete Games Pitched.

In a couple decades we will be able to basically replace Tiger Woods name as the Title of the Golf Record Book, and Im damn proud to be able to watch his talent.

Of the ones you picked:

1) For sure there will never be another 511 game winning pitcher. They say there might never be another 300 game winner. As long as the game is played the way it is now.

Cy also holds a couple other records that will never be broken like, 815 career starts, 316 losses, 7,355 innings pitched, and the grand daddy of them all 749 COMPLETE GAMES! My God... I belive that Roy Halladay has 5 this year to lead MLB, 29 total. I cant imagine a Cy Young. Thats just unbeliveable.

2) I think that Wilts streak is safe, but the 100 point game will be beat sooner or later.

3) Yea, Farve is the Cal Ripken of Football. Speaking on that, I dont think anyone will come close to Cal Ripkens record.

4) I dont think anyone will touch his Assist, Goals, or Points records. Not to mention Career Totals.

Yes that one will also stand the test of time.

As for Wilt's 100 point game the only person i can think can touch it is Kobe Bryant but he would need twenty more points than his greatest and that is rather hard.

MLB: Cy Young 749 complete games....Definitely have to agree this will NEVER be broken just because of the way the game is played now. Even though Ripkens Ironman streak is insane it actually could be broken, but the complete game record wont even be close to being touched.

NBA: Theres a few that will never be broken. Most rebounds in a game 55 by Wilt. Most assists in a game 30 by Scott Skiles. Highest average points per game in a season 50.4 by Wilt.

NFL: This one could be broken but it seems very unlikely at this point: Jerry Rice with 22,895 career receiving yards. Most TD's in rookie season 17 by Randy Moss. Most interceptions in a game...I think it might be tied but it will never be broken: Jim Hardy with 8.

NHL: Its as simple as you guys put it...Gretzky's stats are just incredible and most will probably never be broken.

You are correct, Cy Young's records are not considered "modern era". Back in Young's day pitchers didn't put the same kind of stress on their arms. See: Mike Scott's devastating splitter that killed his career. See: Darryl Kile's 12 to 6 curveball dropping seven feet. If ever a pitcher could reach Young's record they'd have to throw a knuckleball exclusively and pitch into their 60s. Young's records are great, but not really fair.


NBA: Wilts streak of 50 plus points will never be topped nor will his 100 point game.


I wouldn't put it past Kobe.


NFL: Brett Favre consecutive starting streak is just amazing in my opinion.


Great record, but I think it can be broken.


NHL: Wayne Gretzky and his assists record.


I don't know much about hockey other than the Crosby kid from Pittsburgh is pretty damn good!


Notable mention would be Lance Armstrong.


As far as I'm concerned, this record is tainted, but he's a golden boy of the media so allegations will rarely see the light of day.


I'll throw out a few which I don't think will ever be broken:

Nolan Ryan's seven no-no's.

Cal Ripken's consecutive games played streak of 2632.

Peace

I also agree with Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak.
It seems almost impossible to accomplish nowdays.
So many good pitchers,and to many spuratic hitters.

Lance Armstrong was (is?) amongst the most tested athletes in the world, no positives, nothing, nada, ziltch... Seven Tours in a row? Untouchable...

Others? DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak. Wilt's 50 plus points a game for an entire season. Edwin Moses 400 meter hurdles winning streak (100 plus races). Oh's career homerun record. Pete Rose career hits. Ty Cobbs career batting avg.

Here's another record that may never be broken in the National Hockey League. That is the record for Most Penalty Minutes during the regular season. That dubious record belongs to Doug "Tiger" Williams with 3,966 minutes served.

Another record from the world of baseball that may never be broken. That is Orel Hershiser's fifty-nine consecutive shutout innings. Brandon Webb of the Arizona Diamondbacks tried to break the record this year.

Ooooh, good call on the Hershiser record!
Forgot about that one.

Peace

I feel that many of the records that feel are unbreakable can be broken because the paramaters exisit for them to be broken. Can some one break VanDerMeers record? Unlikely, but the possibility exists for someone to throw 3 straight no-hitters. My vote for unbreakable.....
Shortest Baseball game of all time 45 minutes...there are now 54 minutes of commercials in every regular season game.

Yep, that.

Cy Young's 511 wins;

Hack Wilson's 191 RBI's;

Ty Cobb's .367 career batting average;

The season record of 36 triples;

And the career records in triples and doubles.

Those have the least chance of being broken.

In the world of golf and Auto Racing these 2 stand far above any others.

Byron Nelson's 11 consecutive wins.

Richard Petty's 200 wins. ( next close is 105)

I think that Darryl Sittler's 10 point's in one game in the NHL will stand for quite a while.


edit: thanks x-phile. I should proof read more I guess.

Not that it will never be broken again, but that Liverpool game yesterday was great to watch.

Liverpool 8-0 Beisektas (spelling) (Champions League Record)

Holy crap, really. I went to bed at 2-nil.
Crouch was on top of his game.
That's ironic cuz when it was 1-0 or 2-0, I remember the announcer mentioning Leeds beat Liverpool 6-0 and he thought that was a memorable game.
