One man's pain is another man's pleasure.
While people typically tune in to watch sports to see victories, championships and incredible performances and accomplishments, sometimes it can be even more entertaining to watch people fall flat on their faces—both literally and figuratively.
Indeed, there is a deep and profound happiness that one begins to feel while witnessing what we have come to call the sports "fail."
A fail is not a tough loss in a championship game. A fail is not a missed shot or a dropped pass.
No, a fail is much bigger than that. And a fail is much funnier than that.
A man who jumps on a treadmill, loses his balance and goes flying across the room. A famous rapper who throws out the first pitch and can't come within a mile of home plate. A professional baseball player trotting into the outfield in the wrong uniform.
This isn't just a list of everything that has gone wrong in sports this year, this is a collection of specific moments, tiny gems in which teams, players, mascots and fans alike have failed majestically, inadvertently turning in the show of a lifetime.
