Time Magazine named Indianapolis Colts coach/homophobe Tony Dungy to its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, while heavy hitters like President George Bush and Will Leitch were passed over.

The listing, in its fourth edition, is divided into five sections: leaders and revolutionaries, builders and titans, artists and entertainers, scientists and thinkers, and heroes and icons.

It's pretty much the most random and incomprehensible list ever assembled.  How exactly Chien-Ming Wang made the list as a "hero" will remain shrouded in mystery.  Meanwhile, the scandal surrounding the exclusion of a "perpetual sex machine" category solely to snub yours truly will forever mar the legitimacy of this year's list.

Other figures from the world of sports: Thierry Henry, Roger Federer, and (kinda sport-y) Garry Kasparov.  So, those three, Tony Dungy, and Wang: the five most influential people in sports.  In the world.  Yup.
