Tom Brady - Sportsman of the Year
Last year, it was the Boston Red Sox. This year, Tom Brady. Next year, Paul Pierce? Somehow I doubt it. Anyway, this SotY resembles Lance Armstrong's award in 2002, i.e. the editors got together and said, "Well, the choices this year aren't that great, some of our more esteemed writers are suggesting Terrell Owens, Drew Rosenhaus, Jason Giambi, and a freaking horse... Let's just give it to the guy who didn't do anything he didn't do before, but he keeps doing it." Congratulations, Tom. Maybe now you'll feel like you've accomplished something.
