Top 10 Most Obnoxious Celebrity Sports Fans
It's difficult to watch a Lakers, Yankees, or Patriots game without spotting celebrities just behind the players. Likewise, there are some celebrities fans would rather not see on television at their favorite teams' events.
Some celebrities have been fixtures at their favorite teams' games for years, but never seem to come up short of obnoxious when given the opportunity.
Here are 10 celebrities we could all do without during the game.
Jay-Z is another celebrity fan that deserves respect for his fan loyalty. However, I challenge any listeners of his music to time how long it takes to hear him reference the Yankees.
What's obnoxious here is now he has to remind listeners of his Yankee fanship.
Jay-Z is also a New Jersey Nets fan. So much so that he purchased a portion of the team with dreams of moving them to Brooklyn.
Jay-Z, you can have the Nets, but leave the poor citizens of Brooklyn out of it. New York has their hands full with the Knicks as it is.
9. Arnold Schwarzenegger
There are few things less obnoxious than the leader of California sitting courstide at a basketball game instead of in a meeting chair, attempting to fix the massive deficit the state is in.
And oh look, obnoxious people really do have a magnetism towards each other.
8. Billy Crystal
What is more obnoxious than a celebrity signing a one-day contract to play for the New York Yankees? Well...I about seven other things....
I included the video of his Spring Training at-bat, because I wouldn't believe me either unless I saw it with my own two eyes. OBNOXIOUS!
7. Barbara Streisand
What is more obnoxious here? Barbara Streisand attending a Dodgers game while likely knowing nothing about baseball, or sitting next to the McCourts, who likely paid for her and her friends' tickets instead of a reliable pitching staff? Tough call.....
6. Jonas Brothers...
...shouldn't be allowed near sporting events. 'Nuff said.
5. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
Aside from looking like a gay biker (not that there's anything wrong with that), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson provides his school spirit and lack of common sense in this great example of obnoxious celeb dribble.
Although I will say The Rock is fine-tuning his acting abilities, acting like he knows what he's talking about.
He's come a long way since WWE.
4. Spike Lee
Spike Lee has been spotted courtside at Madison Square Garden for decades.
The supposedly die-hard New York Knicks fan has been more recently been spotted at Los Angeles Lakers games.
There are few things more obnoxious than fair-weather fans converting to the front-runner.
Hey Spike, why don't you do the right thing and stand by your Knicks?
3. Jack Nicholson
Jack Nicholson has been a Lakers fan for as long as...well, since he had hair and didn't wear sunglasses indoors.
While the fan loyalty is respectable, no celebrity or ordinary citizen has been more obnoxious than Nicholson, who has been spotted touching players and having conversations with them during the game.
Whoa there, Jack, just take it easy.
2. Lady Gaga
You want obnoxious? How about an overrated pop star shouting out obscenities and flipping off the New York Mets before joining the team in the clubhouse for drinks and partying?
Well done Gaga, you're near the top of this chart, too.
1. Tom Arnold
Tom Arnold is legendary in the realm of obnoxious.
His marriage to Roseanne Barr is grounds enough for tops on this list, but he also receives the prestigious honor for his continued involvement in sports headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Fans can YouTube Tom and find endless results.
Here is just one example of Tom being Tom.
