In addition to the Sports Business Award presented to Cowboys Stadium as Sports Facility of the Year, owner Jerry Jones has been named Sports Executive of the Year.
The other finalists were NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke, and CBS Sports president Sean McManus. The award was presented by last year’s winner, NBC Universal Sports & Olympics Chairman Dick Ebersol.
Jones also was part of a quartet that accepted the NFL’s award for Sports League of the Year, along with Goodell, Saints owner/executive V.P. Rita Benson LeBlanc, and Leiweke.
Also, Super Bowl XLIV was named the Sports Event of the Year.
Finally, the Sports Team of the Year is the Seattle Sounders. Now, please excuse me while I type into Google the phrase “Seattle Sounders.”
