A leader. A genius. A legend.
No one takes the game as seriously as he does and still has fun. No one takes command on the field like he does. No one after 4 neck surgeries has come back better than before. No one has the statistics he has and carries himself with the humbleness he does.
That’s why he’s my favorite athlete, forever and always.
That’s why he’s the 2013 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year.
