After polling three dozen sports bloggers, Mr. Irrelevant presents the Top 40 Sports Figures of 2006.
From Barry Bonds and Harold Reynolds to Jen Sterger and LeBron James - the most controversial and/or popular figures of the year were present and accounted for while others like Michelle Wie and Joakim Noah were noticeably absent.
Topping the list is Terrell Owens, a man that SbBer Paul Katcher refers to as “an abomination of a professional sportsman.”
Upon hearing that Owens was taking the top honor, Bob Costas told Sports Bloggers Live that it could only be compared to Saddam Hussein being named Time’s Person of the Year.
I would’ve gone with Bin Laden but I suppose Hussein will do.
