What sports record will never be broken?

  1. It's just insane that even if you take away all his goals (which he's #1 in at the moment), he's still the all-time leader in points.

  2. I used to go on trips to the Gretzky center to swim in elementary school. Kinda crazy to think that he did that without any of the carbon fiber tech or new stuff we have now.

  3. Javelin, they literally had to change the stick to make it heavier cos people were launching that shit too far and stadiums weren't gonna be able to house the events.

  4. Right, wasn't there one guy who absolutely beast moded it and they changed it after? Like 1984 or something? And I believe they either changed where the weight was or where the handle was to change the center of gravity. Not sure they increased weight (could be wrong on that).

  5. So unreachable. There won't be enough chances to start and given that scores can fluctuate, lots of pitchers will get NDs after quality starts.

  6. The Isner–Mahut tennis match at Wimbledon 2010. Longest match in games played and time played. Rules have been changed now so that record will probably stay forever

  7. This is one I always think of as a baseball guy. The fact that there’s a game you can play called Beat The Streak where you pick an MLB player every day to get a hit, and THATS impossible…actually doing it in real life is never happening again. People who get “close” don’t even really get close. And DiMaggio started another streak of I want to say 14 games (?) right after the 57th game.

  8. Bill Russel having 11 NBA rings as a player. Phil Jackson may have 13 as player and coach but I don’t think a player ever gets 11 again

  9. A lot the "most of something" records related to pitching - most innings pitched, most games started etc. - will never be broken because the culture around pitching has changed. In the early days of baseball, if someone started pitching a game, they finished it lest they be called unmanly. Today, we know pitching is really bad for the arm and things like pitch counts and days off between starts are carefully tracked.

  10. Pete Maravich, all time leading scorer in NCAA Division 1 basketball. He also has the top three single season scoring averages. Maravich accomplished these records before there was a 3-point shot and even more impressive is he played in the era when freshmen were not allowed to play varsity so his scoring was done in only three years.

  11. Add to that he had a deformed heart. His heart quite literally didn't have a left coronary artery, which would normally supply blood to the muscles of the heart itself.

  12. I’ve heard people mention Bradman before, but as a non-cricket person I have no real context for that number. Is there an equivalent to baseball or basketball that would help me understand?

  13. Brett Favre's consecutive games played, and most interceptions. The rules are so friendly to QB's that nobody throws a lot of interceptions anymore and lasts more than one year as a starter. Consecutive games played record will stand because teams are more careful about letting players play hurt, especially with concussions.

  14. Oklahoma’s stretch of 47 wins from 1953 to 1957. The most by far in American college football, which has been played since 1869. Fun fact: that insane stretch is bookended by two losses to the same team. The Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish.

  15. To be fair, Tiger is actually tied with Sam Snead for the most PGA Tour victories, with 82. Jack Nicklaus still holds the record with the most Majors (British Open, Masters, US Open, and PGA Championship).

  16. Connie Mack's 3948 losses as a baseball manager. He also has 3731 wins, that probably won't be broken either, but it's hard to imagine a manager having a 53-year career and being under .500.

  17. Jorge Masvidal's famous, five second flying knee knockout of undefeated Ben Askren in the UFC which holds the record for fastest UFC knockout. It was actually even faster than five seconds, it took the ref one or two seconds to stop the fight.

  18. Walter Frosch, a German football player who got 18 or 19 yellow cards in one season in the 70s. They put a limit of 4 (nowadays) 5 yellow cards per season after which you get suspended shortly afterwards.

  19. Virtually every MLB record that is for starting pitchers throwing a lot of innings. Complete games, shut outs, Ks in a season (or career for Nolan Ryan), Wins.... They just throw so many fewer innings now.

  20. Messi's all-time goal record at Barcelona will probably stand forever (he's also their all-time appearances record-holder). Luis Suarez is their third all-time goalscorer and he's nearly 500 goals behind Messi. He was just on another level for so long and no one will come near it.
