Kate Upton and the 'Best' Dougies in Sports

1 of 20

    Kate Upton modeled for Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition. She might be dating Kanye West.

     

    Who cares—she does the Dougie!

     

    The 18-year-old beauty was caught on tape doing the Dougie at a Clippers game this weekend. And can you blame her? Other than watching Blake Griffin, what else is there to get excited about at a Clippers game?

     

    But it got us to thinking—what are some of the best Dougies from the world of sports?

     

    On the following slides, we've compiled the best sports-themed Dougie action caught on film. You will laugh, you will cry and you will occasionally ask, "Why?"

     

    Let us teach you how to Dougie.

The Inspiration

    Dear Kate,

    Will you teach me how to Dougie? Please?

    Sincerely,

    Men Everywhere

15. Henri Lansbury Interprets the Dougie

3 of 20

    Watch as English soccer player Henri Lansbury combines the Dougie with a bit of straight-legged marching.

    "Is this fella' doin' the Dougie? Well 'ee jus' looks like a wankah, don't 'ee?

    (I can't even type in a good English accent.)

    By the way, I'd stop watching at the 30-second mark, it gets weird.

14. Taylor Mays

    (Explicit lyrics, not safe for work unless muted)

    You should never interrupt a man in the midst of a Dougie. Who knows when Taylor Mays will get the chance to do this again?

13. Reggie Bush

5 of 20

    The run was far more impressive than the Dougie.

12. Luke Babbitt and the Portland Rookies

6 of 20

    Poor Luke Babbitt. He has no idea what to do, to the point that he is literally watching the feet of his teammates for clues.

    And the best part is, they put him right in the middle of the group.

    Fantastic stuff.

Dishonorable Mention: Is Drew Stanton Doing the Dougie?

7 of 20

    Matthew Stafford would never try to do the Dougie after a touchdown.

    Mostly because somehow Stafford would get injured from trying the dance.

11. Seantrel Henderson

8 of 20

    Hurricane Dougie has just struck the Miami sideline. Dougie was a large, yet surprisingly graceful Hurricane.

    Stay tuned.

10. U.S. Soccer Dougie

9 of 20

    I just wished they would have stuck with the Spanish announcer instead of switching to the song.

    "EL DOUGIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

9. Anthony Armstrong

10 of 20

    (Explicit lyrics, not safe for work unless muted)

    I especially enjoy the maraca/tambourine aspect at the beginning of Armstrong's Dougie.

    I deem this the "Stevie Nicks" Dougie.

8. Mike Tolbert

11 of 20

    Mike really gets into it, doesn't he?

Dishonorable Mention: Skip Bayless Breaks the Dougie

12 of 20

    Dear God, why was this allowed to happen?

     

    WHY?

7. Illegal Use of the Dougie

13 of 20

    Leave it to Braylon Edwards to make the Dougie unsportsmanlike.

     

    The best part of this is the guys talking over the video.

     

    "Why'd you just go call a flag on the Dougie like that?"

     

    "Illegal use of the Dougie."

     

    Hilarious.

6. Coach Dougie

14 of 20

    Matthew Mitchell, head coach of the Kentucky women's basketball team, actually gets down. I'm impressed.

     

    But what I'd really like to see is Coach K doing the Dougie.

     

    I would pay.

5. John Wall, Part 1: Extended Dougie

15 of 20

    "Once he gets over his shyness, he is going to be something else, isn't he?"

     

    "He is so reserved, isn't he?"

     

    I'm surprised they didn't add this: "Who is this Dougie? My kids used to watch that show on the Nickelodeon."

4. John Wall, Part 2: Friends Join the Party

16 of 20

    Each time I watch this, I find myself thinking that John Wall is about to start Voguing.

     

    And nobody wants that.

Dishonorable Mention: "Rex Ryan" Does the Dougie

17 of 20

    I can't...ohmigod...what is...why is he doing that?

     

    And yet, I can't look away.

     

    Now all we need is the Andy Reid sequel.

3. Reggie Smith

18 of 20

    (Explicit lyrics, not safe for work unless muted)

     

    If you are going to celebrate after a touchdown, do the Dougie.

     

    And if you are going to do the Dougie, do it like Reggie Smith.

2. Teach Me How to Bucky

19 of 20

    Grooviest mascot ever?

    Not quite...

1. Teach Me How to Duckie

20 of 20

    Now that is one bad duck.

     

    USC cheerleader, YOU GOT SERVED!

     

    Familiar words around USC these days.
