On December 1, Sports Illustrated will name their annual Sportsman of the Year Award.
Unlike last year with Michael Phelps, it's hard to find a slam-dunk pick for this award.
Who would you go with?
I think it should go to retired football player Chris Spielman, whom quit football for a year, helped his wife cope with her cancer and then set up a foundation together with her for cancer awareness. Chris lost his wife the other day. That is the type of role model I want my kids to look up to.

I disagree with Jeter. There were other yankees ahead of Jeter if you're going to name a Yankee like Teixeira and Sabathia who led the Yankees to a world championship. Without them, Jeter may not have even sniffed the playoffs like the previous season.
My favorite was Jimmie Johnson.
Good for him, but that probably only qualifies him for the Mohel of the Year though....
