Top 25 Sports-Related Photobombs on the Web

0 of 25

    Sometimes it's nice to take a break from all the serious aspects of sports. Trade talks, rule changes and possible suspensions have cluttered our minds, and it's about time for a distraction.

    I've brought you soccer fails, faceplants and player-on-fan attacks, and now it's time for another cultural phenomenon:

    The Photobomb.

    Urban Dictionary's definition of a photobomb: An otherwise normal photo that has been ruined or spoiled by someone who was not supposed to be in the photograph.

    And yes.

    There are plenty to be found in the sports world.

    So join me as I explore the fine art of completely messing up a perfectly good picture.

    I know that baseball can be boring, but you don't have to be so cranky when you wake up from your nap.

    I'm not exactly sure if this guy is actually Michael Vick, but I'm going to go ahead and say he is.

    Brock: "Hey Johan, you know what would be funny? If I put my hand in your pants for this picture!"

    Johan: "Oh yeah. That would be hilarious!"

    Johan: "Hey Brock..."

    Brock: "Yeah dude?"

    Johan: "I think you can move your hand now."
