We all love sports, and we all love idiots. Here's a look at some of the finest idiots professional sports has offered over the years starting with...
Some people may say it's cool to have a drink named after you, but for this pro golfer, it's anything but that. Marred with gambling problems, and not being able to handle the sauce, Daly kicks off our list in front page fashion! Hot pink, nice!
Ah, Marcus Vick. Not to be outdone by his brother for the umpteenth time, Marcus has had run-ins with the law regarding some pot, "relations" with a minor (wink wink), a DUI, eluding police, driving on the wrong side of the road (no pun intended), and brandishing a gun on some random people. But it is being reported that he loves dogs!
Oh man, imagine Christmas at this house. Booze, drugs, dead dogs, and prostitutes as far as the eye can see. I couldn't quite figure out what was more entertaining: Vick's surname, or his fiasco with the hidden joint?
Assault problems, rape problems, more assault problems, an affinity for human flesh (particularly, the ear), bad movies, you name it. There is probably more, but hey, isn't that enough to laugh at.
Can I even sum everything up into words here? Honestly.
Baseball is a very hard game, and sometimes you have to have a great image to go along with your playing skills—or lack thereof.
Cordova agreed with this philosophy, and while in California, the youngster burned himself on some lamps in a tanning bed.
It caused him to miss a game or two, but hey, he looked somewhat fantastic!
Drunken ragers, two rape charges, unpredictable behavior, and let's not forget, going head first into a truck while riding a motorcycle with no helmet.
Yup, pretty dumb!
A relatively good basketball player, Walker is another fine example of how money doesn't solve problems, and rather, creates them. Three felony counts of writing bad checks to cover—yup, you guessed it—gambling debts, and a suspicion charge of DUI makes Walker a nice fit for the HOF of stupidity.
You know, we should all sympathize with Bradley—we really should. Nobody wanted to be his friend, or come over to his house for hot dogs and milk, and he was always told that there are only two outs in baseball.
Too young to play football, but apparently not too young to try and take on the NFL in a court of law. Not to mention, not too young to party, get arrested, complain and apologize, not make the team, attempt an armed robbery (which failed by the way), and be a part of the United States prison system.
Look, I like the guy, I really do. But you have to be as dumb as a stump to bet on your own team and think you're not going to get caught, and then later complain about it.
Need I say more?
No, It wasn't the attempted murder on his pregnant girlfriend that made him an idiot (although that was pretty stupid). It was being caught in the trunk of his own car, with a wad of cash, bottles filled with his own urine, and an apparent candy bar, although authorities never said where he went number two. Hmm, candy bars, eh?
Probably not his fault for shooting himself in his own leg, but geez, that's pretty stupid. 8 Mile anyone?
Arrested on two separate charges of assault and domestic violence AFTER taking anger management classes. His hair color fiascos are still under investigation.
About the only thing worse than lying about what you do, is capitalizing on it with the team where it all began. The guy is a black eye on baseball amongst plenty of others.
What makes Gooden stupid is his fall from grace as one of the most dominate pitchers in the game. Hitting his girlfriend, multiple DWIs, probation violations, and jail.
"WANTED: Partner to share in the pursuit of The Path of Enlightenment. Person must like avocado hoagies, having sexual realtions with me (girls preferred by the way), and must NOT BE A FRIEND OF MIKE VICK because PETA will kill me. Apply in person and bring a bong."
CAT FIGHT ON THE ICE!!!!!!!! Hitting your opponent with a metal baton—eliminating her from competition where everyone can see you—is a really stupid thing to do.
Excellent career, loads of money, only to get caught with 80-plus pounds of pot in the trunk of your car. Classic!
Ah, such a fitting picture. Who in the blue hell gets caught with 213 pounds of pot in his car, only to get caught 5 DAYS LATER with another 175 pounds!!! Isn't that almost as much as he weighed?
