Chad Johnson, Replacement Refs, Lance Armstrong Among Top 10 Turkeys of 2012 (Photos)

Happy Thanksgiving, sports fans.

For most folks who call the United States their home, this holiday is a time for families and friends to get together, to enjoy a huge, hot meal and to laugh at the Lions.

Here at, we call people turkeys.

Each year, athletes pull stupid stunts. From saying ridiculous things to getting arrested to getting caught at the wrong place at the wrong time, our sports heroes routinely prove that, at the end of the day, they can be pretty dumb off the field despite being pretty awesome on the field.

While it seemed that pretty much every NFL player was arrested at some point this summer for a DUI charge, we were unable to call out each and every turkey for driving their expensive cars after drinking way too many expensive drinks. That being said, feel free to leave some of your favorite turkey nominations in the comments section below.
