But some athletes have gone above and beyond, making outrageous comments to the media and become fan favorites with their comedic gold.
Shaquille O’Neal has never been afraid to cross the line and say whatever he wants at anytime, even appearing in movies and TV shows. Peyton Manning has become a star for TV commercials and was a riot on Saturday Night Live. And New England Patriots fans saw Wes Welker‘s wit as he slipped 10 foot-related comments in an interview, making fun of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan.
Regardless of the time or place, there are some athletes who can keep us laughing all the time.
