Get ready for a great night in
After spending the year competing against loud engines, being confused by Eddie Jordan and almost getting mown down in the F1 pit lanes of the world, you might think it would take a lot to faze me. Well, come Sunday evening at 18:59:59 GMT, I will be a very, very nervous man.
As much as I see it as my job to take presenting onwards, embracing modern technology and being relevant to viewers as the world moves at such a pace, you are constantly reminded of your responsibilities as you take on the mantle of hosting programmes the audience hold dear.
The BBC's Sports Personality of the Year show is the one when I feel the weight of responsibility most.
Only 10 presenters have had the honour of hosting a programme that is still seen as the most fitting way of rounding off the sporting year.
Peter Dimmock led the way 56 years ago when the event was held at the Savoy Hotel in London. That first show lasted 45 minutes and had one award, which the public voted for via postcard. My, how things have changed.
I wonder how Peter would feel walking out at the LG Arena in Birmingham in front of 13,000 people, who will no doubt have battled the snow to be with us.
And while Sports Personality has evolved and grown over the years, one thing remains just as it always has - the public vote.
And when vote lines open on Sunday, you will be able to choose your favourite from our list of top 10 nominees, who were picked by the sports editors of numerous national and regional publications.
No matter how nerve-wracking presenting Sports Personality can be, however, I would honestly rather be hosting it than trying to pick a winner. This year, of all years, I have absolutely no idea who will get the nod. There is no standout favourite and it is easy to make a really strong case for all 10 candidates.
It is a really strong list of British sporting names, all of whom who have ventured out onto the world stage and come back as winners.
There are always names you could add and, as a motor racing man, I think Lewis Hamilton and Dario Franchitti have had incredible years. However, the BBC did not decide who made the shortlist. Nor does it pick a winner. That's down to you.
If you want to know a bit more about how the show is put together, take a look at the video I filmed in the production office a few days ago. Apologies in advance for the photo!
I realise you may be starting to have your fill of television votes. However, I have not seen another talent show on TV in 2010 with potential winners more deserving of your support. And I think a certain singer's performance, not to mention our Lifetime Achievement and Helen Rollason awards, will produce some of the best TV this year. I suggest you have a tissue to hand.
I hope you stay in for what will be a great evening. We are live from 1900 GMT on BBC One. One of my predecessors, Des Lynam, described Sports Personality as the greatest laxative known to man. I can assure you it is far more nerve-wracking than that!
