You want to win SportsPerson of the year, you better win every goddamn race you’re in. Can’t be slipping up at Saratoga like that. Can’t have it. That’s worse than Serena losing at the U.S. Open. All you have to do is run for like two minutes. There’s a very small margin for error. If you’re a “racer” and don’t win, you’re out of contention for me. Gotta win every time you’re out there.
Also, you can’t win SportsPerson of the year if you’re a horse. If you can’t toss me a quote, you can’t win this award. That’s a pretty simple qualifier, right? Let’s just settle on “only people can win the sportsperson award”
P.S. Gotta love the internet man. What a place. We’ve got people on here legitimately upset and adamantly arguing for a horse to win SportsPerson of the Year. People are actually offended that a human being was selected over a horse for a fake award. Like… very, very offended.
