I’ve written about this before, but thought it would be a good time to rehash this based on Lance Armstrong’s confessions this week.
SI hasn’t had a good track record with its Sportsperson of the Year awards recently.
1975 Pete Rose
1986 Joe Paterno
1996 & 2000 Tiger Woods
1998 Mark McGwire & Sammy Sosa
2002 Lance Armstrong
2008 Michael Phelps (remember the bong incident?)
Hopefully the other winners don’t join this list.
