Forbes: Tim Tebow No. 2 most Influential athlete in U.S.

It seems like it was only last week when Tim Tebow was named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine. Actually, that was last week.

But that didn't stop Forbes Magazine from releasing its annual list of the country's most influential athletes. Tebow ranked second this time around, behind NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson.

The man who displaced Tebow in Denver -- Peyton Manning -- ranked third on the list. So while Manning might be a superior football player and actor, Tebow has him beat in one category.

Look for next week's post on the new list of most influential punt protectors.
