I don’t know for sure what makes women (and occasionally men) expose their private parts at professional sporting events. I mean, I guess it’s got to be some combination of desire for attention and alcohol, but even still, there are less-humiliating ways to get 15 minutes of fame. You could run out onto the field, for example. Your mom and dad would probably still be pretty disappointed, and you certainly would have some legal issues as a result. But at least the whole internet wouldn’t be ogling you, and that seems like a pretty big plus.
That being said, it’s not my job to figure out why people do things. It’s my job to give them the 15 minutes of fame they so drunkenly seek. So on that note, please, take a look at this list of the greatest flashers in sports history. It’s hardly exhaustive, and to be completely honest, I definitely test of limits of the word “greatest.” (“Amusing” or “notable” would probably have been more apt.) But still, it’s a pretty fun list. You will like it.
Neither MLS soccer nor the city of Columbus strike me as things that would inspire a woman to lift up her shirt and expose her breasts. Nevertheless, after a Columbus Crew game back in 2012, this woman was all like, "Whooo a camera! Here are my boobs!"
21. Columbus Crew Flasher
Coming in at #20 we have the most recent incident of sports flashing. This one happened during Game 2 of the first round playoff series between the Blues and Blackhawks a few weeks back.
Classy lady, n'est pas?
20. Blues Flasher (NSFW)
The Blues flasher exposed her breasts just for the hell of it. This Ottawa Senators fan, on the other hand, was trying to distract the opposition—which is to say, she was doing it for the team.
19. Senators Flasher
This woman tried her best to bare all at the New Zealand Trotting Cup a few years ago. Unfortunately, she was a little tipsy, so she never did get that dress all the way over her head. (You can see the video here.)
18. New Zealand Horse Race Flasher
Here's a philosophical question for you: is it still flashing if somebody else exposes your breasts? Because that's what happened here. This chick was dancing and jumping around, and her boyfriend pulled down the top of her dress.
The really amazing thing? She wasn't even mad. See for yourself here.
17. Rugby Flasher
Skip to the 1:20 mark of this one and you'll see one very happy, very well-endowed Ravens fan. It is NOT safe for work, however...unless you work in a strip club or something, in which case anything goes, right?
16. Baltimore Ravens Flasher (NSFW)
There's no better way to support your team than exposing your breasts to the fans in your section. Everybody knows that.
15. Club America Flasher
Once again, this unknown flasher from the early '90s raises the question, is it still "flashing" if somebody else exposes your breasts?
14. Unknown Bikini Flasher
Not all cases of sports flashing are intentional. Sometimes you just get excited to be on the jumbotron and forget you are wearing a really short dress.
13. Accidental Underpants Flasher
It's not a great photo, I realize, but take my word for it—this woman got ejected from a Mexican soccer game for repeatedly exposing herself. (Alternatively, if you don't want to take my word for it, you can see the video here.)

Luckily there are other things to do at a Bengals game besides watch the Bengals.
11. Bengals Flasher
Remember this one? It was all over the internet a couple of years ago during the Vancouver Canucks' (eventually heartbreaking) run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Some Canucks fan decided to punish a visiting San Jose player sitting in the penalty box by...showing him her boobs? (Some punishment.)
10. Canucks Flasher
Hey, come on, we have to include at least one dude on the list. (Read more about this one here.) That's it, though. From here on out, no more dongs.
9. EuroDong Flasher
Bruins chicks don't just expose their breasts. They expose them, and then rub them up against other breasts.
8. Bruins Chicks Getting It On
Meanwhile, in Florida...
(Obviously this woman is a big Sir Mix-a-Lot fan.)
7. Florida Panthers Flasher
If you're even in Denmark and you find yourself at a Bronby IF game, keep an eye out for this woman. Apparently this is a regular thing.
6. Excited Bronby Fan
I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure those are not real...like you care.
5. Tigres Monterray Flasher
Meet Irina Grandez and Daysi Araujo. They are proud Peruvians (and models—duh), and at the Copa America in 2011 they gave their fellow Peruvian soccer fans quite the treat.
4. Peruvian Soccer Flashers
At the 2010 Summer X-Games, before the motocross speed and style gold medal race, this young woman was trying to get the crowd pumped up. In doing so, she made the day of one little boy by acquiescing to his cute demand that she show him her boobs.
Seriously, though, I'm pretty sure that's illegal. And what about the kid's mom? She's standing right there while her son asks some random chick to lift her shirt. Whaaaa?
3. X-Games Flasher
The second greatest flasher in sports history? This hot cricket flasher, circa 2005. The TV producers put her on camera because she's a fox, then she gave everyone what they were hoping for but never imagined they would get.
2. Cricket Flasher
Who knew going to a Cleveland Browns game could be this much fun? (And educational!)
