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.

Zenyatta - she's 14 for 14 (has beaten some of the big boys), no ego, and makes money instead of takes it. Probably 2009 Horse of the Year. :up

Good for him, but that probably only qualifies him for the Mohel of the Year though....


He also broke the SEC record for the most rushing TDs.. He also is a hesiman QB, and has 2 national titles under his belt and working on a third.. But aside from his on the field accomplisments hes also a great role model.
