The Best Unintentional Comedy Moments In Sports History

Allen Iverson’s Practice Speech

He said practice so many times in this speech, it made my head hurt. And yeah, Allen, we are talking about practice because you keep talking about. Side note: I just noticed he’s wearing a Red Sox hat. (Excuse me while I bang my head against the wall).

Bruce Springsteen’s Crotch Slide

There’s nothing like having a 59 year old man in tight jeans slide right into your living room in high-def. This is the reason we need all TV to be in 3-D. Now that would have been an experience.

Roseanne Singing the National Anthem

This is only a short clip, but it was the only one I could find where it had the video too. Seriously San Diego, that’s the best you could get? What was their thought process in that decision?

Boom Goes the Dynamite

This video makes me cringe every time I watch it. Was he actually good at broadcasting and just had a bad night, or did the Ball State communications department let one slip through the cracks? They should get knocked down at least 10 spots in national rankings for letting that guy on the program.

Anytime Shaq Talks

Yeah, these two explain themselves. And they’re just a snippet of the Shaq we know and love.

Denny Green “They Are Who We Thought They Were” speech

I watched some of the game, and the Cards did have a chance to win. Denny let us know that.

Mike Gundy’s Only Speech We’ve Ever Heard

He’s a man. He’s 40. And he wants you to know it.

Jim Everett Goes Berserk on Jim Rome

I’m not so sure I’m not on Everett’s side on this one. Come to think of it, I’m not sure this is unintentional comedy. Oh well.

Jim Mora Playoffs and Some “Diddly Poo”

I love Jim Mora. This is a guy who was so crazy and inept that he got fired and paved the way for Tony Dungy. I seriously love him. And you got to love someone who can say diddly poo with a straight face.

Mark Madsen Dancing

He sent all white men 100 years back.

Bobby Knight’s Whole Life

Now I will leave you with some great moments from the master of unintentional comedy himself. Enjoy.
