Where are the NY Yankees who won the World Series for 5 years in a row from 1949-1953? They were nearly invincible!!! And what of the US Olympic basketball "Dream Team"?

I agree that the 1970 Brazilian National soccer team was the greatest single season team I ever saw, but the Yankees succeeded over a sustained period.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
