Mick Jagger once said, "You can't always get what you want."

As it stands, GIFs of animals playing sports are the one and only exception to the age-old rule that you "can't have your cake and eat it, too." The truth is that you can have video of a bear playing tetherball, and you can can feast upon it forever without clicking, thinking or doing anything.
Such is the nature of .GIFs—the replenishing fountains of joy that never run dry.
With that, the following are the finest GIFs of animals playing sports that the Internet has to offer. May your cup runneth over with LOLs.
