20 of the Biggest Stooges in Sports

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Before I get into making fun of some of the world’s dumber athletes, I think it’s only fair that I share some of the dumbest things I’ve said and done. I’m not the sharpest knife and never have claimed to be. There is a lot more evidence than this, but here are a few examples that come to mind.

Ex. 1: A couple months ago, when discussing how many eccentric people from Canada there were, I added Sarah Palin — the former Governor of Alaska who ran for Vice President of the United States.

Ex. 2: When my wife came home with a haircut she didn’t like, I told her I never have and never will care what her hair looks like, and I honestly thought it would be taken as a good thing.

Ex. 3: I once thought having kids would be a good idea.

Ex. 4: When I was 22-years old, I got fired from a job I really liked because I left early after I already asked my boss if I could leave and she told me I couldn’t. The reason I felt so inclined to abandon my job — a Kansas City Royals game. And as you could have probably guessed, no, they weren’t competitive. I lost a job because I refused to miss the first couple of innings of a pointless baseball game.

There are plenty more examples that I may share in another article in which I hypocritically judge people for being stupid, but that’s all I’ll admit for now. Here are 15 athletes who may or may not be dumber than me.

    Damn, I wish I were as dumb as Jerry Jones!
