From Hard Knocks to Khloe and Lamar, sports and reality television have merged in the past to offer fans compelling—or in the case of Khloe and Lamar, totally unnecessary—entertainment options.
Even Shawn Marion is getting in on the act, apparently working on a reality show about his life, and the women in it. That sounds really intriguing.
And by intriguing, I mean boring as dirt.
But it got me to thinking—what sports-related shows would I want to see? What hilarious programming could athletes, sports personalities and front offices provide for fans?
A warning—there are some athletes here you might expect to see that won't make this list. Some NFL players, for example, may already have some humorous jobs lined up. Other notorious athletes may have some funny summer blockbusters they are in the midst of completing.
But for others who don't have alternate plans this summer, it's time to get real.
