Only one player from the NFL made the list and he came in at No. 44. Care to venture a guess who it was? It wasn't Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. It was Tim frickin' Tebow. Told you these guys weren't hanging around sports bars.
LeBron James, arguably the best basketball player on the planet after coming off an NBA championship and Olympic gold medal, came in at No. 32. The replacement refs were No. 14. No. 14? Are you kiddin' me! They came, they ruined, they left. No. 14?
Olympic legend Michael Phelps almost made the Top 10, touching the wall at No. 12. What makes his ranking even more impressive is that the leader of the free world, Barack Obama, was No. 11. Just to make sure we aren't playing favorites here, Mitt Romney made the list at No. 24.
Scotsman Andy Murray, who became the first Brit to win a Grand Slam event since 1936 after winning the 2012 U.S. Open, lobbed in at 33.
The top-ranked athlete came in at No. 2: the incredible Usain Bolt, who repeated as Olympic champion in the 100- and 200-meter runs and probably cemented his status as the greatest sprinter of all time.
With Obama already mentioned, Prince William at 20, Quentin Tarantino at 28 and one of my favorites, Seth MacFarlane, at No. 4, whom does that leave at No. 1? Bond, James Bond came in at 001. The reason? "No matter how much the world has changed, what guy still doesn't like a stiff drink, a sexy companion, a fast car and, yes, the latest nifty gadgets?"
Can't argue there.
