Modern athletes are way too serious. With their strict diet and workout regimens, it’s like they’ve found a way to home run the humor out of their bodies. We here at Ranker think it’s time that they were taken down a peg or two. That’s why we’ve put together this list of funny jokes about athletes and the sports that they love. Whether it’s basketball, football, or soccer (or one of the million other sports that are just okay), there’s a pun or a quick one liner on this list to bring out the laughter in even the most strident of sports fans. Leper hockey players, super tall basketball dudes, and chicken soccer players, we’ve got them all on this list. And don’t worry, there aren’t any creepy Kobe jokes here. The sports humor we’ve collected on this list is fun for the whole family. Unless your family is a bunch of sports hating nerds, then we’ve got nothing for you. Whatever your favorite sport happens to be, we’ve got a joke on this list that’s sure to turn your baseball brain into a bullpen of laughter. Or maybe they’ll make the little Marv Albert in your brain say “BOOMSHAKALAKA!” with joy. If you find that we didn’t have a joke about your favorite sport, then too bad! Seriously, we blew out the doors on these sports jokes, there’s even a joke about cricket on this list.
