The Most Unexpectedly Awesome Moments in Sports
Tim Cook/Associated Press

For a sports moment to be "unexpectedly awesome," it has to be equal parts surprising and epic, like when a pitcher who looks like a substitute math teacher hits a mammoth home run or when a fat guy catches a touchdown pass. 

While buzzer beaters and Hail Mary bombs are awesome, we—as sports fans—are not entirely shocked when they happen. 

Similarly, we've seen so many insane dunks from LeBron James and circus goals from Alex Ovechkin that we're practically numb to the SportsCenter "Top 10." 

In the Twitter age, we need to see players do utterly ridiculous feats at the craziest of times, which is why I've put together a list of surprisingly awesome sports moments.

I hope you like your endings with a twist.
