Jeter crowned the “most popular athlete”


NY Yankees SS Derek Jeter has entered the immaculate, being crowned the “most popular male athlete” by the newly released Harris Poll. He kept his popularity despite being questioned for his lack of appearing at the All-Star game for his own ceremony following his 3,000 hit milestone. His popularity isn’t based solely around his milestone, as he held the top spot for jersey sales for men and women alike, months ago! MJ remains tied with Kobe Bryant at the three spot, and Kobe is the most popular among Hispanic and African-Americans. Colts QB Peyton Manning moved up to #2 with his many endorsements of late. Lebron James moved from #6 to non-exist(ent) on this years list.
