On Tuesday night, a few hundred people gathered in New York City for the annual Sports Illustrated Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year ceremony, which is like the Golden Globes to With Leather’s Top Sports Moments of the Year. University of Tennessee Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt was honored as the Sportswoman of the Year, while Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski was presented as the Sportsman of the Year. Smart ass college basketball fans everywhere suggested that the titles should be swapped.
Also honored was Noah Flegel, SI’s Sports Kid of the Year, and he was the biggest winner of the night. Why? Because he got to hug swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, who was at the event as part of her mandatory deal with SI to always be awesome. Between her Twitter and, well, her, Teigen is our favorite girl on the planet not named Kate Upton. And now I’m sad that Upton wasn’t there, too.
And there were some other people at the event, but I only care about Teigen. She’s that special.
