In the world of sports, there a bunch of cool characters. These guys just seem to radiate confidence and it shows up on the field. Well, I guess that is not totally true. There are some guys that are impressive before the game but they absolutely lay an egg once they step on the field. Anyways, if you have guys like that, you need the opposite of that. That is why we are bringing you a list of 20 of the goofiest athletes in the world today.

These guys may not be exactly normal, but their results on the field certainly offset that. There are some of the usual suspects on this list, but a couple names may surprise you. They may seem perfectly normal but they do have some strange quirks that make them perfect for this list. For instance, there is a set of brothers on here that put up great numbers, but they are not exactly the most normal guys on the planet. You should be able to figure out who I'm talking about.

There are also a couple past athletes on here. One might be the goofiest player to ever play baseball, considering he did some of the strangest things on the planet during games. Heck, he even found a time for a bathroom break during an inning. There is also a former quarterback on this list that annoyed the crap out of people for a few years because he did not know when to hang his cleats up. He also has a pretty odd personal life.

Anyways, it is time to get to the list. If you think we are missing someone, let us know in the comments below.
