    Time really has their finger on the pulse of public opinion.

    Pretty sure "LeBron James" and "humbled" don't belong in the same sentence.

    Re: Guess who is up for Time's "Person of the Year"...

    Well, the definition of Time's Person of the Year does say that it features and profiles a person, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that "for better or for worse, ...has done the most to influence the events of the year."


    I would hope though they could find someone has done more better than LeBron's doing worse.

    Will there be a one hour ESPN special for him to accept the award?

    I just read that the weight of Lebron's ego caused Miami to break off into the Atlantic.

    Unless you are from Cleveland or South Florida I don't know how King James could be that influential, though.

    The guy who founded wikileaks is also on the finalist list, as are the Chilean miners.

    Edit: Here is the actual list:

    I think the miners would be a good choice. Zuckerberg is definitely a good choice too, I'd think. The world revolves around facebook anymore.

    It's gonna be "The Unemployed American", just as in 2003, it was "the American Soldier".

    Wasn't one of the more recent "Person of the Year" 'You'? And it had like a shiny silver cover that looked a bit like a mirror, so that if you held it up, you'd be the person on the cover (in a distorted, blurry way)?
