Your 2008 SHOTY Winner: Baby Mangino


We congratulate Baby Mangino for his convincing victory in the 2008 Sportshuman Of The Year tournament. He is saluted with this rather amazing "One SHOTY Moment" video. » 1/12/09 1:30pm 1/12/09 1:30pm

Baby Mangino's Final Push; Bissinger Won't Go Down Without A Slight


If there were any questions about how seriously some are taking SHOTY 2008, look no further than KAKE, an ABC affiliate in Kansas, which devoted an entire segment to Baby Mangino's "championship" run. » 1/08/09 3:45pm 1/08/09 3:45pm

SHOTY Final Four: Buzz Bissinger Vs. Erin Andrews

Welcome back, everybody. Some of you worked last Friday, some of you still aren't back at work today. But whatever, it's SHOTY time, time to wake up, people. » 12/29/08 12:45pm 12/29/08 12:45pm

SHOTY Elite Eight: Buzz Bissinger Vs. Mark Cuban


It's the battle of people who have yelled at me in public. Woo-hoo! It's just like hanging out with my dad when I was a teenager. Why wasn't my dad nominated? » 12/19/08 12:15pm 12/19/08 12:15pm

SHOTY Elite Eight: Chris Cooley Vs. Erin Andrews


To be honest, I'm a little surprised by this matchup: Caitlin Davis seemed to have solid upset potential, and Erin Andrews ... well, I guess you can't underestimate the power of the sideboob. » 12/17/08 1:30pm 12/17/08 1:30pm

SHOTY Elite Eight: Chris Berman Vs. Baby Mangino


Welcome, everybody, to Elite Eight Week! If we had a cool corporate sponsor who flashed repetitive commercials in between every one of these posts, you'd be hearing that phrase a TON this week. Maybe we could have a late coach give an inspired speech between halves. Alas. » 12/15/08 12:30pm 12/15/08 12:30pm

Last Day For First Round SHOTY Voting


OK, the Elite Eight of the 2008 Sportshuman Of The Year tournament begins tomorrow, so I figured it'd probably be wise to give everyone one last opportunity to vote before the polls close. » 12/11/08 11:30am 12/11/08 11:30am

SHOTY First Round: Dana Jacobson Vs. Erin Andrews


It's the final first round matchup, and it's a fun one, methinks. Ah, if only these two pictures could somehow be combined. Anyway, this is the last time with a new matchup. So everybody vote. Yes, please, Facebook people too. » 12/10/08 12:30pm 12/10/08 12:30pm

SHOTY First Round: Chris Cooley Vs. Caitlin Davis


Just two more first-round matchups until we reach the Elite Eight. We haven't had any truly close matchups yet, though it's early. Today, it's Hot Pants/ Naked Playbook Guy Vs. Hot Pants / Goofy Facebook Lady. » 12/08/08 11:30am 12/08/08 11:30am

SHOTY First Round: Buzz Bissinger Vs. Mike Singletary


Fridays are always good days for mismatches. Most of you have probably skipped out to do holiday shopping anyway — do they still sell the Tickle Me Elmo? — so it makes voting anomalies less likely. » 12/05/08 12:30pm 12/05/08 12:30pm

SHOTY First Round: Chris Berman Vs. Kevin Hart


It might seem odd to some of you that Chris Berman would have such a high seed this year. Wasn't his heyday around 2006, YWML time? Well, I would retort that you've had too much of the deux deux deux. » 12/03/08 12:30pm 12/03/08 12:30pm

SHOTY First Round: Brett Favre Vs. Baby Mangino


All righty, kids, holidays are over, you have the next month of craziness to streak through — I never notice December has started until it's over — and it all begins now. Time to get serious, people. And nothing's more serious than SHOTY voting. » 12/01/08 12:15pm 12/01/08 12:15pm

SHOTY First Round: Mark Cuban Vs. Matt Leinart

It's the day after Thanksgiving! If you have any good sense, you're lying on the floor right now, surrounded by pieces of bird skin, dealing with a nog-throbbing brain and complete with a homicide-scene outline traced with pie crust. Congratulations on getting to this point. You've earned it. Now, how about some… » 11/28/08 8:00am 11/28/08 8:00am
