Vote: Most beloved sports figure in Boston

ESPN.com Illustration

It seems everyone is filling out brackets ... and we're certainly not immune to the March contagion. We're unveiling brackets of our own. So get in the spirit and cast your vote to help determine the most beloved sports figures in Boston. We’re starting with 16 and we’ll narrow it down to one and name the winner on March 26 (at which time we'll spin things around and launch a sports bracket to determine "Public Enemy No. 1" in Boston).

Some of the names for the final 16 we’re obvious, but it wasn’t easy making the list. Among the difficult omissions were Tim Thomas, Robert Kraft, Johnny Pesky, Tony Congilaro, Jim Rice and Terry Francona.

Anyway, take a look and cast your vote!
