All-Name Teams #29

Featuring names from across the world of sports

• All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” — which means “God with us.”

• Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
— From the Gospel of Matthew

All-Christmas Team 5
Emmanuel Ekpo — soccer
Brenda Frese — basketball
Richie Incognito — football
Omar Infante — baseball
Patrick Towles — football

All-Star Team 2
Starlin Castro — baseball
Brady Morningstar — basketball
Gary Nova — football
Anastasia Rodionova — tennis
Kate Starbird — basketball

Procedural Note — If you’re wondering why there are five people per team, it’s simple: Basketball was my favorite sport as I grew up, and since the rules of basketball (last time I checked) allow five players per team on the court, I’m going with five-person All-Name Teams.
