ACCESS DENIED: Nine Instances Of Sports Personalities Overestimating Their Own Fame


Pro athletes are not only rich and famous, they tend to get rich and famous extremely early in their lives, with people telling them how great they are every step along the way. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that some athletes can be… kind of assholes about that fame, and use that fame to their advantage. Sometimes it works. Other times, though, it doesn’t… like it didn’t in the nine instances you’ll see below.

    What a stupid slideshow… Hines Ward “Overestimated” his fame because he asked the cops not to broadcast his arrest, and then the story got out and went wide after that? WTF? And then a bar screws up and books an event on a night they were supposed to leave open for the very team that you claim “overestimated” their fame? ANd what about the football players at the pizza restaurant? Did they drop the “Do you know who I am?” line? You didn’t leave it out of the story about the pitcher(So far the only thing on this list that isn’t pants on head stupid.), so why leave it out here?

    Basically, this list is nothing but the first crap you could find on the internet about celebrities. This is the problem with all of these “lists”–99% of them flat out suck.

    This is a problem with unaccredited ‘journalists’ on the internet. Phoney baloney nonstories are given credence as real stories. It also speaks to the poisoned brain worm of the haters.

    The Mutombo story is TRUE! I was shocked to read it, because the first time I heard this was back in the early 90′s while I was still in HS. I was out with a close friend and we ran into one of his buddies on break from school – Georgetown. He told us about Mutombo and that he once came into a bar they were in and yelled “Who wants to climb Mount Mutombo”. I haven’t been able to take Mutombo seriously since. Although his latest commercial is great!
