Not all of them garnered the attention or the acclaim of LeBron and Landon, but it wouldn't be fair to talk about the year in sports without mentioning these athletes:

  • Tiger Woods: Made the world wonder how much pussy Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus were getting to stay sharp when they dominated the game
  • Tim Lincecum: Instead of conquering his drug problem to appear in the World Series as Josh Hamilton did, the Giants' ace went out and won the damn thing while getting high as shit the whole time
  • John Wooden: Selflessly prevented George Steinbrenner from being this year's most notable sports death
  • Albert Pujols: Probably hit a bunch of home runs or whatever again this year
  • Jessica Bratich: During the 2010 National Karate Championships in Albany, Jessica kicks 12 people's heads off
  • Jimmie Johnson: Showed us all there was still hope for America when, after he won his fifth straight NASCAR championship, the vast majority of the nation just didn't care
  • Stephen Strasburg: Had the most anticipated surgery debut in baseball history
  • Rafael Nadal: Absolutely the kind of athlete who should be on a list like this
