The 29 most impressive streaks in sports

[post_page_title]Cal Ripken Jr.’s consecutive starts[/post_page_title]
Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. played in 2,632 consecutive starts, beating Lou Gehrig’s previous record by more than 500 games. Ripken passed Gehrig, whose record stood for 50 years, and just kept on going. To put it in perspective: there were three different presidents and Ripken had still not missed a start. The closest anyone has gotten since has been less than half. Miguel Tejada played 1,152 consecutive games between 2000 and 2007 (good for fifth all time).
