There's Something About Joey

It was recently announced that Joey Votto from the Cincinnati Reds won the Lou Marsh award for the top Canadian athlete of the year. He beat out Sidney Crosby who scored a golden goal and Jon Toews who won a gold a Stanley Cup. The last player I remember to win a gold for Canada and a Stanley Cup in the same year was Steve Yzerman in 2002, my all-time favourite professional athlete. I would personally have voted for Crosby, who is lighting the NHL on fire for the first 3 months of the 2010/11 season. He scored the gold medal winning goal and is hands down the best player in the league this year.

That being said, Joey Votto is some kind of wonderful. I am a fantasy baseball nerd, and statistically what he did this year was unbelievable, and he did that over 162 games. Votto is a top 5 pick in every fantasy baseball league next season.
