Joe Maddon: Sportsman Of The Year Precedent

J Koot of Busted Coverage was nice enough to squeeze in a link to our first installment of Your Sportsmen Ain’t S#!t Compared To Joe Maddon in between their usual link dump/pics of scantily clad women, but Koot also questioned Maddon’s nomination with “Does he play?”

I thought that would be a good reason to point out that there is some precedent in previous Sportsmen Of The Year. While no baseball manager has ever gotten the award, four coaches have won. Three college coaches and one pro: John Wooden of UCLA, Joe Paterno of Penn State, Dean Smith of North Carolina, and Don Shula of the Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins.

Smith and Shula got the award as quasi-lifetime achievement awards after breaking career victory records. Smith and Paterno were also recognized for not getting caught breaking NCAA rules and appearing to care if their players graduated. Wooden won after winning his sixth consecutive national title.

Joe Maddon has the career victory record thing going for him since he broke the Devil Rays franchise career victory mark, and the single-season mark.

Wooden, Paterno, Smith, Shula — certainly they accomplished things in their respective sports. But can anyone really argue with the obvious fact that each of them ain’t shit compared to Joe Maddon?

    Paterno loses more greatness everytime he pinches off a loaf than Maddon has in his body. Any guy from Hazleton, PA ain’t shit.
