All great things must come to an end.  Unfortunately for Kim Kardashian, her marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries lasted a measly 72 days.  Here are the top five streaks in sports that lasted longer than their holy union. 5. Julio César Chávez – 87 consecutive victories Gretzky's streak of 51 consecutive games with at least one point is not likely to be threatened any time soon This may actually be the most impressive of the streaks, because unlike the rest of the guys on this list (And hopefully Kim), Julio César Chávez was taking punches on a regular basis.  The former six-time world champion won every match from February 5th, 1980 to May 8th, 1993…the first 87 matches of his career. 4. Wayne Gretzky – 51 consecutive games with at least one point “The Great One” definitely showed his nickname was well deserved between October 5th, 1983 and January 28th, 1984, when he contributed to the scoring 51 games in a row.  While four months may not feel like a long time to Wayne Gretzky, or most other people, it has to feel like an eternity to Kim. 3. UCLA men’s basketball – 88 consecutive wins John Wooden led his troops to victory every time they stepped on the court between January 23rd, 1971 and January 19th, 1974.  Just because this streak took place before Kim was born, doesn’t mean she can’t take notes!  Come on, Kim…John Wooden sure knew how to make things last! 2. Brett Favre – 297 consecutive regular-season starts at QB Favre made some questionable decisions towards the back-end of his career (Like showing off pictures of his front-end), but unlike Kim, you can’t question his heart or commitment.  Despite being “sacked” more times than former Jets’ “Gameday Host” Jenn Sterger, Favre didn’t miss a start from September 27th, 1992 to December 5th, 2010. With the way the game is played today, Cal's streak has almost no chance of being broken (Photo by Gary Hershorn/Reuters) 1. Cal Ripken Jr. – 2,632 consecutive games played The “Iron Man” played over 17 seasons without missing a single game.  Ripken’s streak started on May 30th, 1982 and lasted until he took a well-deserved rest on September 20th, 1998.  Kim could have gone through over 85 marriages between Cal’s days off.
