Not to nitpick too much since the Giants SB is well represented, but how is the Burress TD in the Super Bowl not listed for best finish? How often does someone score the GW TD in the Super Bowl with 30 seconds left?

Anyways, my picks.....

Best Male-Tom Brady

Best Female-Lorena Ochoa

Best Moment-Lester no-no

Best Team-New York Giants

Best Coach-Pat Summitt

Best Game-Super Bowl 42

Best Championship Performance-Tiger Woods 2008 US Open

Best Play-Manning to Tyree

Best Finish-of those choices, Penguins over Red Wings in 3 OT

Best Breakthrough-Adrian Peterson

Best Upset-Giants over Patriots

Best Record Breaker-Brady to Moss

Rest of the categories I dont care too much
