    Alright, let's break out this evergreen a little early this year.

    Suggestions, suggestions, please.

    Lance Armstrong, for finishing the marathon.

    Lance Armstrong is a big fraud.

    I'd have to think Bill Cowher would receive some serious consideration.

    How is Ryan Howard not on this list and not Albert Pujols? [/Columbo]

    Also, don't forget that the Olympics were this year. Speed skater Ahn Hyun-soo won four medals, three of them gold.

    And remember SI likes to think outside the box: I could see them naming Pujols SOY even though he didn't (or, perhaps, because he didn't) win MVP. Could also see them naming someone like Chad Hedrick or Shani Davis SOY. I could even seem them doing something really crazy and naming Hedrick and Davis co-Sportsmen of the Year.

    Not Davis. He was awesome, but Hedrick broke the world record about 10 different times in different races. He 'choked' a little at the Olympics, but he dominated the year.

    I would go with him or Tiger, both dominated their sports.

    If SI were to slant the vote to go with the better story, I'm guessing Tiger's performance after his father's death would factor into a decision his way.

    I can't think of anyone who stands out. I would be hard pressed to name a winner.

    Because I'm Italian, I'm partial to Italy's World Cup Team.
