    I thought of saying that here but didn't.

    It's probably Beetlejuice time now. :(

    I'm not hating right now, just confused.

    How is it he can STILL be getting awards for Vancouver, considering it's more than a year later, he hasn't set competitive blade on the ice since, and he doesn't appear to be making any kind of effort to come back? Come on guys, I KNOW he beat "the evil commie Russian" and that makes him some kind of hero, but a year later!? Honestly?

    But isn't the award for 2010? Seems appropriate to me.

    Really? It's an award for the top US amateur athlete from 2010. Man brought home the gold for the US in mens. And it's not all 'eville Russian', lots of us paid no attention to Plushy's whining off the ice. Do people really still say 'commie'? Honestly? :rofl: Where?

    Evan won the 2010 Sullivan Award which recognizes the athlete's accomplishments for 2010. Just because Evan won the Olympic Gold Medal in February 2010 does not make him any less deserving of the award than an athlete that competed in a sport in November or December 2010.

    I don't see why this is so hard to understand. Evan is the Sullivan Award winner for 2010. He may have won his OGM a year ago, but it still happened during 2010.

    Exactly. Reminds me of when people complained about Kwan winning the Sullivan Award because she didn't win the OGM in 2002, "only" bronze... but it's because she won the award for her 2001 accomplishments (fourth World title).

    Then Sarah Hughes took home the Sullivan Award in 2003 but with respect to her 2002 accomplishments (OGM). Certainly not for her 2003 accomplishments :)

    Some happy news at last!

    Congrats Evan! Well deserved! :respec::cheer::cheer2::40beers:

    It seems similar to the Oscars in that the awards are for accomplishments the previous year.

    It´s never too late to reward a Cold War hero!:p

    Back to the topic! I think it´s great that a figure skater won this award, especially in a country like USA which has a lot of top athlets. Congratulations to Evan!:rockstar::cheer:

    So happy for Evan! He's definitely in great company with the other skaters who've won that award.
