Found a link to this stashed on ESPN.com. At least Gibbs made the list right? What do you think of his placement?

Maybe just a little something to cheer us up on the bye week here...

Personally, I think that it is an honor that he made this list. It might be because of his NASCAR involvement as well, but it shows how well he is respected in the sports world (and the world in general)

See the full list

(Search didn't work, didnt see in RBN, or first two stadium pages.)

a hypocrit.

My name is Bud Selig and I look the other way when players are juiced up and bashing homers because baseball was struggling after the strike. Now that it is back on track I look at Barry Bonds and shake my head in shame.

I also like how Tiger is number two. Damn.

The list isn't of the 100 most admirable people in sports. It's a list of the most powerful and Bud Selig is a powerful man (I'm not a Bud Selig fan :().
