Sportsmen Of The Year


It's always a debate as to who should be awarded the Sports Illustrated Sportman of the Year award and there are many deserving athletes this year.

Michael Phelps

Tom Brady

Lance Armstrong

Pat Tillman, R.I.P.

Good choices all. But anyone who votes for these guys over the 2004 Boston Red Sox is smoking something serious. Not only are these guys a team. Not only is this the best baseball story in years. But this is the best sports story since, well, since these guys won the Sportsmen of the Year award 24 years ago.

So how about we all help out our good friends over at SI and vote in this online poll for the 2004 Boston Red Sox (you do need flash). You can also send in comments here. Think of this as performing a much needed public service. We're simply saving them from themselves.

Jeez, Pat Tillman is going to be tough one not to vote for. I mean, forget sportsman, he could be human of the year. I think the Red Sox were a great story, but Tillman is the man.

"He could be human of the year."

I totally agree, which is why I think the award should actually go to a sportsman. Don't get me wrong, Tillman should be honored, and rightly so, but I'm not sure that giving this award posthumously is the best way to do that.
