The Biggest Party Animals In Sports
The biggest party animals in sports all have one thing in common: they know how to have a good time.
I like to think of a good party as anything involving an absurd amount of women and/or booze interspersed with numerous incidents of debauchery from all people involved.
And if there's anyone who knows how to turn an ordinary Tuesday night into a fun-filled unforgettable experience, it's a professional athlete.
You've seen 'em do it before, popping bottles of Rozay all night while being surrounded by so many beautiful women it should be illegal.
Unless it's someone who lives the straight edge lifestyle or just doesn't like to party, being an athlete equals insane tomfoolery.
But who are the biggest party animals in sports?
Let's take a look.
10. Ron Artest
Ron Artest admitted that he used to booze it up at halftime during games when he played for the Chicago Bulls, which is pretty amazing considering the skill, balance and athleticism it takes to play basketball.
But you know why it's really clear that Ron Artest likes to party?
Because he didn't take his jersey off for two and a half days after the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA Finals earlier this year.
And he even wore it in LA nightclubs as he showered himself in Grey Goose.
Seriously though, that jersey had to smell like absolute crap by the time he took that thing off.
9. Anthony Kim

Never in a million years would I have thought that they Anthony Kim was a maniac off the golf course.
Until I read this tweet from a Palms hotel DJ that said Kim went wild and bought over 100 bottles of champagne before ending the night with a champagne shower for everyone at the club.
I stand corrected, Mr. Kim.
8. Charles Barkley

According to the New York Post, Tiger Woods' former adviser said that Woods turned into a lying, cheating dirt-ball of a husband because of Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.
Well, apparently Woods would meet up with Jordan and Barkley at casinos and piss his money away by betting $25,000 hands on blackjack and roulette.
Plus, everyone knows that Barkley was once sports' biggest gambler, and he even got popped for a DUI back in 2008.
7. Larry Eustachy
Isn't it pretty clear that as a college basketball coach you shouldn't fraternize with students at your own university, much less ones from your opponent's school?
Don't ask Larry Eustachy that question. He doesn't know the answer.
Eustachy, who currently coaches men's basketball at Southern Mississippi, got himself some heat when he attended a post-game party at the University of Missouri in 2003 and was photographed kissing female students and pounding back some brewskies.
Sounds like a smart man to me, but I guess you should show a little better ethic judgment when you're a public figure.
I guess I should probably inform you that Eustachy was pushing 50 at the time though.
6. Matt Leinart
In 2008, Matt Leinart was well on his way to becoming one of the bigger busts in recent NFL history.
So instead of hitting the film room or studying the playbook, what did Leinart do?
He jumped into a hot tub with a bunch of hotties from Arizona State, then taught them how to funnel.
That's what happens when you give a 22-year-old kid millions of dollars in guaranteed money before he does a damn thing.
To be honest though, I can't say I blame you, Matt.
5. Alexander Ovechkin
What do you get when you mix Alexander Ovechkin and Semin--um, his teammate Alexander Semin that is--together?
Apparently one hell of a good time.
Those two toured Turkey over the summer and raked in more women than I do leaves on an autumn day.
Who says you can't have a Michael Strahan tooth gap and still be a chick magnet?
4. Alex Rodriguez
If there's anything that Alex Rodriguez loves more than a box full of Deca and Winstrol, it's a tranny with even more testosterone than he has.
Yeah, that's right. Before A-Rod was bumping uglies with Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, the New York Yankees slugger was scoring hookers from a transvestite madam, Kristin Davis, who was former New York governor Eliot Spitzer's supply source.
Apparently Rodriguez went on somewhere between five and 10 dates with some of Davis' prostitutes, but Davis was the one he was really after.
It also involved several "sexts" between the two, with A-Rod begging Davis to take a ride on his baseball bat.
Alright, I think I just threw up a little bit. I gotta stop.
3. John Daly
John Daly just might bring partying to a whole new level in this series of pictures.
Instead of working on his short game, Daley likes to spend his Thursday afternoons taking his clothes off with amateur porn stars.
I mean, who gives a crap if it's still light out, you're surrounded by people and some chick who probably has an STD is showing her stuff for all the world to see, right?
It's all about having fun.
Seriously though, Daly parties so much that he has to use a beer can for a golf tee.
2. Dennis Rodman
Just when you thought Dennis Rodman couldn't get any crazier, the guy does it again.
In September, Rodman was at a party at the Hotel Indigo in Hampton Bays when he left the party and headed for his hotel room with not one, two or three, but six different women.
Once in the room, Rodman--who needless to say had a couple drinks in him--proceeded to describe in vivid detail what he wanted to do to them.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that he had a cordless microphone in his pocket that played the encounter over the loudspeakers for everyone to hear.
How can you not the love guy after that?
1. Tiger Woods
According to a report by The Sun, Hollywood madam Michelle Braun said that Tiger Woods wasn't just cheating on his wife with one woman at a time.
"He had a pretty big appetite for girls. Never just one girl. He would want to set up a whole weekend of partying and have ten or 15 girls 24/7," Braun said.
Woods also apparently had a thing for a girl-on-girl action, porn stars and "college cuties." But who doesn't?
Anyway, Tiger, we know addictions are hard to kick.
But I think that takes things to a whole new level.
