Around this time of year, you can’t go to a sporting event without seeing at least one person dressed up as good old Santa Clause, whether it’s just some random fan in the crowd or someone the team has hired to make the fans merry. However, you rarely see the actual athletes dressed as Santa.
Why is that? Because so many of them make absolutely terrible Santas. After all, the Man in Red is supposed to be fat and jolly and full of cheer. How many athletes can you think of that fit that description? Oh sure, there are some fat athletes out there. But most of them aren’t very jolly—or if they are, it’s because they’re drunk.
Anyway, you get the idea: athletes in Santa costumes is often a bad idea. And today, to prove my point, I’ve got a list of 12 athletes in particular I would rather not have seen dressed as old St. Nick.
So come on, forget work! It’s two days before Christmas. Your boss doesn’t really expect you to be productive.
