Sports Records That Will Be Hard To Break

Brett Favre, once again, reportedly has submitted his retirement papers to the NFL league offices. Which means he’s officially done playing football…until next year. What are some of his records that may never be broken?

If he actually is done this time around (which many people believe)  he will do so owning many NFL records, but perhaps none as impressive as his consecutive games streak. Love him or hate him, his Ironman streak of 297 consecutive regular season games started is nothing short of amazing.

According to, here’s a rundown of some other sports records that may never be broken:

  • Joe DiMaggio’s 56-Game Hitting Streak: The closest anyone has gotten in the 70 years since the record was set is 45 games. That’s still 11 games short or two more weeks of baseball with a hit every game.
  • Pete Rose’s Hits Record: The big number is 4,256 hits. Derek Jeter could beat it if he can average 200 hits a season for the next seven seasons! I think A-Rod may beat this.
  • Cal Ripken Jr’s Ironman Streak: Cal started 2,632 straight games. That’s more than 16 seasons without missing one game. No active player has more than 600 right now.
  • Kelly Slater’s Surfing Wins: Professional surfer Kelly Slater has 10 world championship wins and he might have more left in him.

What are some of your favorite sports records?
