Welcome to the wonderful world of crazy athletes.

Here is a brief list of the craziest athletes of all time. Now a few things to consider—we know that there are some real lunatics that did some awful things, but this is as lighthearted as it gets.

So you can keep your O.J. Simpsons and Tonya Hardings for another list.

Second, there are obviously going to be omissions, and I welcome any and all suggestions in the comments section.

Nyjer Morgan and his Tony Plush alter ego, Kevin Garnett and his manic playing style and Jose Canseco’s Twitter fails are just a few of the people that could have easily made the list.

Here are the characters that make sports such a treat to watch. We truly had no idea what they would do or what they will do at any moment.

They keep us fans on our toes—and that is a good thing, mostly.
