Brainstorm: Who are the most likable bad boys in sports?

Time for this week’s Brainstorm.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it by posting in the comments:

Who are the most likable bad boys in sports history?

It wasn’t part of the original assignment, but let’s see if we can get ‘em to go for it: We’ll take suggestions for likable bad girls too.

Update: Here is the slideshow that resulted from this brainstorm, The Most Likable Bad Boys in Sports History. I spoke with the writer, Lena Sutherland, who told me that this brainstorm was a big help.
