You know that quote that tells you to “dance like nobody’s watching“? Well, that’s great if your a hot chick having fun on a “girls’ night out,” but it doesn’t apply to sports fans. If you’re at a game, and you’ve had a few cold ones, and suddenly you feel the urge to stand up on your seat and bust a move, think twice. There’s a good chance the other people in your section will not be laughing at you, not with you, and you’ll end up on a list like this with people mocking your moves to pass the time at work.
Actually, on second thought, nevermind. Just give in to the urge and dance your heart out. The rest of us need a good laugh.
Speaking of which…enjoy this list of awesome dancing sports fan GIFs.
Hey, remember the Green Men from the Vancouver Canucks' 2010 run to the Stanley Cup Finals? They were pretty funny. I wonder why we didn't see more of them last season. Oh, that's right—the Canucks got bounced in the first round by the Kings.
20. Dancing Greenies
Hey, look, dancing bulls.
Actually, you know what? Forget the guys wearing bull heads and check out that chick on the far right in the cheetah print shirt. She's going nuts.
19. Dancing of the Bulls
In this case, the hat makes the dance. Still, with a score like that, I'm surprised he was in the mood for dancing.
18. Buffalo Mating Dance
Who let the Giants fan into the Jets draft party? And what the hell is a draft party?
17. Giant Shuffle
Why yes, that is the #2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. And no, Robert Griffin III most definitely does not have any moves. I mean seriously, is he downhill skiing?
16. The RG3
That USA Women's Soccer Team coach Pia Sundhage. Apparently she quite enjoyed the musical performances at the Olympics closing ceremonies. (She's about the only one, too.)
15. Pia Rocks Out
Finally, some dancing that isn't embarrassing. If only all dancing sports fans looked like this lovely women from Ohio. Go Bobcats.
14. Ohio Ladies
The University of Mississippi sports teams are called the Rebels—you know, like the Southern states that rebelled against the North rather than get rid of slavery. And until 2010, their on-field mascot was a Confederate caricature called Colonel Reb. So you might think that African American Mississippians would be a little ambivalent about rooting for Ole Miss teams. But not this lady.
13. Dancin' Rebel
I guess most people probably don't consider towel-waving a dance. But I do, and this guy is amazing. He makes me wish I lived in Arkansas. (So do the Duggars.)
12. Razor Backfat Jiggle
This one is from the 2012 Summer Olympics. The woman in the middle is Samantha Cameron. The man to her right is her husband, David Cameron, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The man to her left is Boris Johnson, the mayor of London. All of them really know how to cut a rug.
11. Political Maneuverin'
I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that this is the greatest spontaneous celebration of a home run catch by a fan in the history of baseball. Note how the usher starts walking over to the guy to escort him off of the restricted area, but he stops to let him perform his dance because he knows it's amazing. So hats off to you, Texas Rangers fan.
10. Arlington Sprinkler
Everybody was kung fu fighting? Na na na na na na na na na na?
9. San Antonio Shake
I think these gentlemen were overserved by the folks at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place. Also, let me just take this opportunity to say those Senators jerseys are really dumb-looking. Team nicknames do not belong on official team equipment.
8. The Old Prospector
Is this an SEC football game, or a Phish concert? Either way, I think this guy is stoned.
7. The Bayou Bengal
This guy is really enjoying himself, and in the end that's all that really matters.
6. Jazz Hands
I love how this guy's wife is sitting right next to him, but she refuses watch. It's like if she stares in the opposite direction and doesn't say a word, it's not happening. But it is, lady. It is.
5. The Jacksonville Jimmy
Hey Tom Brady, are the those the moves that seduced Gisele? If so, she just got a lot less hot.
4. The Brady
There was a crazy rain delay during the match between Ukraine and France at Euro 2012 back in June, which led to some amusing shenanigans. This guy's Shakira impression was probably the best.
3. Ukrainian Rain Dance
Just list a white, red-headed Michael Jackson. Only less good at dancing. (PS, those girls right behind him are really impressed, aren't they?)
2. Texas Tech Shuffle
This dude has some moves. He's gotta be the most popular guy on campus, right?
