You know what I noticed the other day while watching some of the college bowl games? How many current or ex-athletes were on the sidelines of their alma maters, rooting on their schools proudly.

And while I'm totally cool with a guy like Adrian Peterson standing there to cheer on the Oklahoma Sooners, there were a few guys who made me wonder how in the hell they got a pass to be there.

The problem is not that they weren't great athletes once before, but it's that they are so desperately trying to hold onto whatever little fame or face time they have left.

So whether it's using their fame to score a spot on the sidelines of a college football game, signing up for a reality show or just saying annoying things to get attention, these are the worst athlete culprits who are clinging to fame.
