Sportsman of the Year
Pat Tillman is one of my heros. Not because of sports, I'm not a big follower of football. Not because he was killed in action in Afghanistan, though that, like the death of any American Soldier is a great loss. But because he walked away from a safe life and joined the Army because he was called to serve his country. Pat Tillman marched to the sound of a different drummer than most pro sports players.
He is currently third in the running for Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year. Go to the website here and vote for a real sportsman and a real hero.
