2008 was a wild year for sports. Now that 2009 is finally upon us we can reflect on what happened and also look forward to another exciting year. In this past year, we've had breakout athletes, shocking wins, and record setting performances. Eli Manning and the New York Giants upset the perfect Patriots in Super Bowl 42, Michael Phelps set a record by winning eight gold medals in the Olympics, and Stephen Curry made his presence known in the NCAA tournament.
And you think you've seen it all?
In 2009, there's a chance that we might be introduced to even more household names.
