The 10 Funniest Moments in Sports History
Whether it was the infamous Dennis Green quote, "They are who we thought they were! And we let them off the hook!" or just a player running into the wall, athletes and coaches sure know how to keep us entertained and get us talking.
Here is my dedication to the top 10 funniest sports moments in sports.
10. Joe "Creeper" Namath
When a drunk Joe "the creeper" Namath hit on Suzy Kolber on Monday Night Football, it may have been the funniest thing I have ever seen. It was something I will never forget watching on ESPN.
9. Killing One Bird with One Ball?
When Randy Johnson hit a bird with a 95 mph fastball, I was surprised PETA wasn't releasing statements against Johnson and trying to sue him for animal cruelty. As much as it sucked for the little bird, this was pretty entertaining to watch.
8. THEY WERE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!!!!
"THEY WERE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE! AND WE LET THEM OFF THE HOOK!" Me being a Bears fan, I of course thought this little angry rant by Denny Green was hilarious. After my Bears came back and won in a roller coaster of a game, Coach Green was livid!
7. Use Your Head
Meat Head Canseco definitely used his head when he played in the outfield. When he was with the Rangers, he took a fly ball off the head and it ended up over the fence. The call was a home run. It was a simple fly ball that Canseco just misplayed.
6. F**CKING CUBS FANS!!!
Wow was this funny! After a one run home loss to the Dodgers, manager, Lee Elia got mad at the Cubs fans for booing his players. Elia ended up getting fired at the end of the year. If you haven't heard this, youtube it. It is something else.
5. Playoffs?! Playoffs?!
Playoffs?! Playoffs?! Are you kidding me?! No Jim Mora. I'm not kidding you. Jim Mora's rant turned into one of the best as seen in the Coors Light commercials.
4. Don't Forget the Lyrics
At an international hockey game of Canada vs. United States, the lady singing the national anthem forgot the lyrics. She went off the ice and when she came back on she slipped and fell. Youtube Girl HUMILIATES herself at Ice Hockey Game to see it. Very funny.
3. Oh What a Night!
Oh Bobby Knight. Bobby Knight had many temper tantrums through out his coaching career. His best one, of my opinion, is his "five year old like" temper tantrum when he threw the chair into the court. Oh the many faces of Bobby Knight.
2. I'M A MAN! I'M 40!
The epic Mike Gundy press conference about the press trashing his players. This was hilarious! If you haven't seen it, please watch it. It is something else. "I'M A MAN! I'M 40!"
1. THE BAND IS ON THE FIELD!!!
"THE BAND IS ON THE FIELD!" The best known words in sports. If you don't know the meaning behind those, you might be living under a rock. In 1982, Cal pulled of a miracle in beating Stanford on a last second multi-lateral kick off return for a touch down. The best moment and fthe funniest moment in sports when the tuba player gets knocked over.
