Shouldn't there be a limit on the number of times the Red Sox appear on your cover in one year? As a Yankees fan, reading SI has become like seeing my ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend every week. Don't make me throw away another good magazine.

Wow. SI selected a team that won one championship in 86 years as its Sportsmen of the Year. Imagine what you'd do if a team ever won 26 championships in 86 years?

Next year I hope you consider athletes who have transcended the world of sports in a positive way. Lance Armstrong, a champion on the grueling race course who is doing more for cancer awareness than any other individual on the planet, would have clearly been a better choice. The Red Sox should clean up their act, take a bath, get a haircut and stop abusing alcohol before their games.

Why not Diana Taurasi for Sportswoman of the Year? She led UConn to a national title, won a gold medal in Athens and was named Rookie of the Year in the WNBA.

With everything Barry Bonds continues to do, including his seventh MVP award this year, at the age of 40, it would have been nice to see him recognized as the Sportsman. And I'm a Dodgers fan!
