This slideshow will show that not all athletes can be like Bo Jackson or Deion Sanders, some athletes need to stick to the sport that buttered their bread and for good reason as you will see in this slide show. If you dont like some of the athletes on this list, feel free to offer suggestions as to who should be here or complain that I left out Elroy Martin the man who played pro baseball, pro galic football, ballroom dancing and professional farting in crowded elevators from 1925 to 1944.
Tie Domi, the former NHL enforcer for one preseason in 1996 for 2 games, was the placekicker for the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League. Domi was terrible one of his field goal attempts went virtually just straight up in the air came back down and was caught by a Hamilton Tiger Cat player in one game and run the other way for a touchdown. Domi, also played for Kosovo of the Canadian Soccer League during the 1994-1995 NHL lockout but he didnt fall flat on his face so I won't talk about it.
Manram this march, tried his hand at cricket and well, he really should stick to baseball, although the two sports are "cousins" in cricket you shouldnt drop you bat as Manny did running to the wickets nor should you begin a cricket swing with your bat high in the air. Manny may have tried to be a clown but it ended up with him looking very stupid, thank goodness Manny didnt play in the field for the small time he played in this little press cricket event or else Manny would have missed the wicket by at least 50 feet.
In may of this year, madman and former MLB player Jose Canseco, thought he would try Mixed Martial Arts, bad idea Jose. The man with 462 career homeruns fought Hong Man Choi in the Japanese fighting promotion DREAM and lost in 76 seconds as Canseco according to him felt his knee pop and was brought down by Choi (did I forget to mention Choi is 7 foot 2?) and forced to tap out after Choi began pounding on Jose's head. I expect to hear in a few months Canseco plans to wrestle a crocodile.
Well, Jose is on the list for a second time, why? Just because he's Jose and he has stupid ideas. Mr.Canseco's first bright idea to get back into the spotlight/make some money before MMA was to go into boxing but against who? former NFL player Vai Sikahema. This seemed like an easy win for Canseco had a height advantage (Canseco 6 foot 4, Sikahema 5 foot 9) but Sikahema had boxing experience before playing in the NFL. (he has fought in over 80 amature fights) Canseco, just thought he could win on a hope and a prayer. Even worse for Canseco, he was suffering from food posioning and insisted on fighting, needless to say Sikahema knocked out Canseco in the first round.
MJ is #1 on the list for the worst multi sport athletes and I think we all know why, Mr.Jordan is top 10, even though he had 51 runs batted in and 30 stolen bases in his one season with the Chicago White Sox's minor league team the Birmingham Barons in 1994, Air Jordan's batting average was only .202 with 3 homers and his fielding made Manny Ramirez look like a 10 time gold glover.
