Derek Jeter is Your Sportsman of the Year

If “you” are Sports Illustrated, that is. Still, he deserves it! SI has a nice gentlemanly interview with Jeter, too.

SI: Curt Schilling said that he remembers the way you nodded at one other before your first at-bat in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series. Do you remember that?

DJ: I remember. It was fun. I always look at it as it’s fun. Schilling was as big a big game pitcher as there was. There were others, but you can’t say there was anybody bigger than him since I was playing. So Game 7 of the World Series and you’re facing the best? It’s fun.
