Guys, loosen up your belts; ladies, put away the scales! It’s time to talk about the worst bodies in sports!
Professional athletes are the best at what they do, and the strain and rigor that they put their bodies through is tremendous.
It’s easy for us to scoff at them from our couches as we are pounding down a bag of potato chips, but the fact of the matter is that most of these athletes are in incredible shape.
That being said, some may have taken one too many trips to the buffet at the team hotel, or packed a few too many Twinkies for a road trip.
When you can’t fit on the back of your athletic card, you know it might be time to cut down on the Cheetos.
When home plate looks more like a Thanksgiving platter than a run scored, you might just be an out-of-shape athlete.
Here are the 50 worst professional sports bodies in history:
Here's a little something to whet your appetite for this list.
Some people don't think that you have to be in shape to drive a car around a track a whole bunch of times, but ask anyone who has ever done it, and they'd beg to differ.
I guarantee you they've got a hose attached to Stewart just to suction out his sweat!
If you search for Ronaldo online, you will think I'm crazy.
Search for fat Ronaldo...
To be fair, George looks pretty jacked here.
But, I have a grill with his name on it, so he's on the list.
Randolph has picked up the slack as of late, but back in the day, he was what we would term as a butterball.
I considered putting Russell No. 1 because of the absolute failure he became, but this list doesn't take purple drank into consideration.
Daunte's "roll celebration" really took on a whole new meaning towards the end of his career...
Now, Gallery is paid to be a big man, so I can't really fault him for any of this.
That being said, he is a big boy!
He also needs a haircut.
What made Antoine Walker look even worse was the fact that he always looked like he was about to cry.
I always used to think that Johnson was a local YMCA player who won a contest or something...
The only thing fatter than Baron Davis is Baron Davis' beard.
His nickname was "The Round Mound of Rebound."
Need I say more?
Back in the day, the Diesel used to be a tank. He got fat, though.
If you look closely, I think you can see a milk mustache.
If you stare long enough, you'll see a cheeseburger...
Peyton Manning!? Gosh, that time off really went to your thighs...
In all seriousness, this is an NFL quarterback.
Where's Curly and Dopey?
Or, whatever the Three Stooges' names were...
I see London, I see France!
I see Tony Gwynn's belly.
This is the only guy on the list to have a son bigger than him.
Quite an honor for the proud papa.
This is called the bellyball.
I'm surprised he can get the club around!
You don't get nicknamed "The Bus" because you are a little petite man...
Newton always enjoyed those tight jerseys.
Really accentuates the curves...
Big fat Bartolo Colon!
That's what I call him.
The whole phrase is necessary.
Generally speaking, when you look like this as an NBA player, your role is to take up space.
And then you end up on my list.
Two roles to fill, and he did them well!
The way this man can move his hips is absolutely terrifying.
No, this is not the drummer from The Roots.
Please post your reaction to this picture below in the comments.
Fat Antonio Alfonseca!
That's all I got...
If people look at you and think "panda..."
You are either endangered or fat.
Two options, pretty simple.
Rest In Peace, big fella...
Caption contest on this photo!
This is what happens when you don't give Prince a snack before the game!
One of the more famous stomachs in baseball right here!
Back in the day, Gilbert was known as the Grave Digger.
If he fell on you, chances are you would die...
Still one of my favorite moments ever.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:
The richest out-of-shape athlete in sports.
There is no denying that "The Babe" was horribly out of shape...
When your nickname is "The Big O," this list is where you gotta go!
I think Mr. Gibson may have eaten his defender...
Yes, Butterbean is a real athlete!
I dare you to dispute it, he's been known to knock out a few fools in his day!
This is one of my favorite big guys, but only because he reminds me of the beer.
Daly is known for being fat and for partying.
Basically, he is living the American dream.
This is athletics at its best.
Notice the man over his shoulder...
Yarbrough would be No. 1, but his job requires him to be this big.
Nonetheless, he is an athlete, so I figured a top 10 spot would make him happy.
Sabathia's one big boy!
I could make a fat joke, but it's getting redundant.
He was nicknamed "The Fridge" because he was as big as one, and he could eat everything in it!
I believe he is explaining how to get to the nearest Burger King.
The Goose is arguably one of the biggest men ever to grace an NFL football field.
He also gives sideline reports between McNuggets.
If you look closely, you can see a small moon gravitating around him in the picture.
