Mr. 3000 is also Mr. Popularity.

Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter topped The Harris Poll's annual ranking of America's favorite sports star, edging Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan tied for third place.

Jeter was up two spots, compared to last year, and Manning jumped from fifth to second. Also notable was the rank of LeBron James, whose migration to South Beach to play for the Miami Heat dropped him from number six in 2010 to out of the top 10 in 2011.

It terms of most popular female athletes, it was Serena Williams at number one, and her sister Venus second.
