Roy Halladay Receives Nomination for Sportsman of the Year

Kyle Scott - November 4, 2010

Sports Illustrated will reveal its "Sportsman of the Year" on November 30th.  SI.com writer Jack McCallum made his case for Doc.

No, the main reason I picked him is that Halladay turned down David Letterman.

Right after his Oct. 6 no-no in the Phils' 4-0 Game 1 playoff win against the offensive-minded Cincinnati Reds, the "Late Night" host wanted Halladay to sit down next to him. That's a no-brainer acceptance for most athletes, especially for a pitcher whose services wouldn't be needed for a few days. But Halladay gave the counterintuitive no thank you (as he did to interview requests from CNN and the CBS Morning News), both because he didn't want to upstage his teammates at a crucial time in the postseason and didn't want to miss a birthday party for his six-year-old son Ryan.

How can you not love this man?
