    Thank goodness he had such a great postseason. In my mind, we had a lot of really good choices but no real great one before that show he put on in postseason. You could make a good case for a number of people but he trumped them.

    The presentation/reception is tomorrow and I was lucky enough to get an invite. Eager to see how all that works and I hope I don't drown getting there with the forecasted weather.

    I very much doubt these things are within your control, but the drama of the video might be enhanced if the winner weren't in the URL.

    SEO and all that.

    Very good choice. No one really stood elsewhere. Olympics were blah. Maybe Pop/the Big 3 of San Antonio. Russell Wilson? No quibbles with this choice.

    Figured it would be a low wattage winner when they added Magic Johnson as a "Legacy Award" winner. I guess congrats to SI to not just going with someone who would sell the most magazines or ads.

    Funny thing, the Baumgarner cover will be the first Giants player on a national cover all year. Even when they won the Series it was a regional due to the college hoops preview.

    Seems a fairly clear choice since this year there was no "one guy" that really stood out on the other championship teams.

    I kinda feel like the Spurs title was most deserving of special commemoration since it was the culmination of such an amazing 16 year run, but that was a more a team thing, there's no single guy that says SOY. And similar story with the Seahawks (Wilson, Sherman, Carroll ...which one?).

    Only possible quibble with Bumgarner is the choice is based almost entirely on post-season, he probably wasn't even one of the five best regular season pitchers. But, hey, post season is what counts.

    A good choice, but not McIlroy?
