Sports are for obsessed athletes to prance around for our general entertainment. Oh, and they often embarrass themselves in the process. Here are the ten best sports memes of all time…
10 – McKayla Maroney
Not content with having two surnames or winning gold at the London Olympics in 2012, Maroney pulled this face when she was forced to settle for silver. And apparently, she also likes to make that unpleasant face while critiquing legendary pieces of art.
9 – Manny Pacquiao Asleep
Having developed a reputation for the ferocity of his boxing skills, Manny Pacquiao will be forever undermined by this meme in which he his shown sleeping soundly on a Tempur-Pedic mattress. Of course, he wasn’t actually sleeping on the mattress! In fact, Juan Marquez had knocked out the Filipino in a 2012 bout. Perhaps Manny will find it tough to live this one down.
8 – Jay Cutler Smoking
Famed for the disinterested demeanour he displayed with the NFL’s Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears, Jay Cutler is smoking and clearly doesn’t care what you think about him. While hilarious, this meme perfectly encapsulates his general personality.
7 – Boom Goes the Dynamite
Search for this caption on YouTube and you will be introduced the hilarity of the phrase first being uttered by Brian Collins, who nervously birthed the term during an NBA game featuring the Indiana Pacers.
6 – Cigars on a Golf Course
In an attempt to display his respect for Spanish golfer Miguel Ángel Jiménez, a London man dressed up like a pirate and held a cigar in his mouth. The media captured the image and now cigar guy has a global reputation in the field of sporting memes.
5 – Yao Ming Cartoon
The lanky Chinese basketball star was sitting at a 2009 and proceeded to laugh his ass off at the comments made by a teammate. A cartoonist decided to elevate the image to legendary status by converting it into a popular internet meme. And now we have the Yao Ming meme for adding amusing text beneath.
4 – Manning Face
Peyton Manning is perhaps the greatest quarterback ever to play in the NFL. Nevertheless, even the five-time NFL MVP has bad days at the office. Any member of the Seattle Seahawks will be able to remember “Manning Face”, which is a rare blend of frustration, disbelief, and bemusement.
3 – Sad Simba
In this particular meme, Simba has been positioned in the image to offer support to fallen basketball player Derrick Rose. The Chicago Bulls power forward and former number one pick in the NBA Draft is not immune to the impact of injuries. But fret not, because Simba is there to console him!
2 – Beauty and the Beast
Although not a sports star per se, Erin Andreas definitely works out like an athlete. Just check out the astonishment of the bewilderment of the man alongside her. A caption of “Beauty and the Beast” would be perfect here.
1 – Zimmer Frame Bingo
And after much deliberation and plenty of laughs, we have to decide to feature a hilarious meme depicting two seniors propped up by the aid of Zimmer frames and brandishing fencing foils – thank you, world! Sites like LuckyCowBingo.com are a great source of bingo-related humour.
