    Interesting list.

    No. 1 is Michael Phelps.

    Ecclectic list. Now I feel worse than usual.

    Strange to see an actor on that list, especially one who's mostly in the news nowadays for rehab-related stuff.

    with no consideration for steroids being a factor.

    Might be more precise if they used the term the 50 fittest "celebrity" men of all time.

    List does not account for Navy Seals or Special Forces soldiers who might run circles around anyone on that list.

    Also, Walter Payton retired as the all-time leading rusher.

    Typical liberal media.

    A list that doesn't include a single hockey player seems incomplete to me. Those guys are monsters.

    The photo of Schwarzenegger is just insane.

    I am not trying to discount their fitness, but they don't look all that imposing in relation to other athletes. I think it's because they have to stay lighter and quicker than football or basketball players but have to be stronger than soccer players, so their bodies are mostly in the mid-range. A beastly hockey player -- Ovechkin, say -- is 6-3, 230. That's a small linebacker in the NFL.

    I'll take Ironman legend Dave Scott as No. 1.

    You guys seriously clicked thru 50?

    And when the first guy shown is a stupid British actor... wow.

    Internet lists suck.

    I'll take the guy who completes and finishes last in the Ironman over some actor.
