Today’s pro athletes make a ton of money. However, we all know that money doesn’t buy happiness, and Lord knows it certainly doesn’t buy you any common sense or self control. If anything, money seems to make certain athletes feel like they are invincible and can do no wrong. And they always end up getting wasted, trashing a Denny’s, and having their mugshots posted on TMZ.
Personally, I love athlete mugshots. I know I shouldn’t, but I do. Whenever an athlete gets into trouble, I think, “well, I don’t get paid millions of dollars, and I’m not married to a supermodel, but at least I’ve never been arrested at the airport for trying to carry a bag of weed on a flight to Newark.”
In any case, in honor of a certain member of the Oakland Raiders, we’re going to take a look at some of the great mugshots in sports history. Take a look, and enjoy the smug feeling of superiority.
