There are 43 distinct muscles in the human face. Thus, any time you exert yourself, any time you are emotionally invested in something, or any time something completely unexpected happens, your face tells the story. And since the world of sports produces a lot of exertion, emotions, and unexpected events, it also produces a lot of goofy faces.

Sometimes the funny faces are unintentional, like when a coach is just smoldering with rage after a boneheaded play. Other times they’re very much intentional, like when a famous soccer player mocks an opponent live on ESPN 2. Either way, they’re golden—especially in animated GIF form.

And that’s what we have for you today: 22 fantastic animated GIFs of sports personalities making funny faces. I guarantee they’ll put a smile on your face, so check ‘em out.

22. Shocking

22 akers surprised 63 yard field goal

Even David Akers was shocked he made that 63 yard field goal for the 49ers against the Packers last week—off the crossbar, but good. You don’t see that every day.

21. Bibbyface

Mike Bibby had always wondered what that guy’s hand tasted like. The answer? Lemons. Eww.

20. Hunterface


After being hired in November last year, Hunter turned things around for the Capitals, who upset the defending champion Bruins in the first round before taking the #1 seeded Rangers to 7 games in the second round.

However, after the successful season he announced he would not be staying on in DC, but would instead be returning to his old gig—coaching the London Knights of the OHL.

This face? My guess is this is the exact moment in the playoffs last year when he was like, “man, f–k this s–t, I’m going back to Southern Ontario.”

19. Ace Ventura

No one makes a funny face like Jim Carrey. The tutu is just icing on the cake.

18. Bomaniface

I’m sure it was all quite innocent. It looks like Mr. Jones was just kissing a pretend championship ring on his finger. But when you take it out of context and turn it into a looping GIF? Well…

17. Delmon's Hit Face

17 delmon young makes funny face after hit

Someone tell Delmon Young you’re not supposed to watch the ball after you hit it. You just gotta put your head down and run.

16. Excited Newcastle Fan


No idea what just happened here, but obviously it was pretty wonderful. Mr. Diamond Earrings approves, that’s for sure.

15. Cubanface

Mark Cuban may be filthy rich, and he may be the most entertaining owner in sports, but he also tends to look like a doofus most of the time. This is no exception.

14. Angry Wildcat


Arizona b-ball coach Sean Miller has some choice words for one of his players. I’m sure he meant it with love, though.

13. Exteme Closeup


That’s some mighty fine camera work, fellas. Keep up the good work.

12. Say Huh?

Around the Horn Panelist Michael Smith appears to be genuinely confused by something somebody just said. (I bet it was Woody Paige.)

11. WTF Tom Crean?

Is it just me, or is this not the look of a man who just pooped his pants?

10. Doucheface


This is Roethlisberger at Super Bowl XLV.

Yeah, that’s right, you lost, buddy.

9. Mark May


Ever wondered what ESPN college football analyst Mark May would look like on drugs? Well, here you go.

8. Wade Sad, Kobe Mad

D-Wade looks like an adorable sad little puppy dog. Kobe, on the other hand, looks like a serial killer.

7. Stoopsface

Everyone else seems to be happy, but Bob Stoops looks like somebody just told him his dog has cancer.

6. Natureface

6 ric flair making funny face

Nobody wears looks as good in a gold medallion necklace as Nature Boy Ric Flair. And nobody can “WHOOOOO” like him, either.

5. Trash Talkin' Face

Kobe May be nonplussed, but whatever Chris Rock is saying, David Spade thinks it’s pretty funny.

4. The Rockface

4 the_rock_clap_clap_gif

Sometimes I cannot, in fact, smell what the Rock is cooking. Here, for example, he’s either really inspired, or really pissed off.

3. Boshface


I could be mistaken, but I believe this is Bosh’s “who farted?” face.

2. Dempsey's Trash Talking


This past Tuesday, the US soccer team took on Jamaica in a world cup qualifier, looking to get revenge for a shocking loss only 5 days earlier. And apparently the two teams’ familiarity bred a little contempt, because Clint Dempsey was in rare trash-talking form.

1. Vince McMahon

This right here is all you need to know about Vince McMahon, professional wrestling, and the WWE. He looks like a confused chimpanzee, and I love it. Gospeed, Mr. McMahon.
