We all know Will Ferrell is a supreme athlete. I haven't seen Semi-Pro but his skating ability in Blades of Glory and all his naked running in Talladega Nights and Old School serves as evidence enough for me. Where did his athletic prowess come from? I have a controversial possibility:
Not really but they could be related. Dobson had a pretty nice career, winning over 100 games and appearing in 1 All-Star game and 2 World Series (Detroit won it all in 1968). He passed away in 2006, 1 day after being diagnosed with Leukemia.
