20 Celebrities With Surprising Sports Skills
Fall is the time of year when most Americans unite to sit on their couches to watch current sporting events. While they all have different start dates and end dates to their seasons, fall is when football, basketball, hockey, and baseball cross over with one another. We celebrate these athletes this Autumn, but we here at Cracked want to extend kudos to the forgotten athletes: celebrities!
Believe or not (but you should believe), some of your favorite actors, musicians, and other performers from film and TV were lauded athletes before you knew them from *insert television show/movie/album here*. A stand-up comedian/political pundit was an all-state soccer player. An astrophysicist and show host was an undefeated high school wrestler. An actor may have fallen just short of being in the U.S. Olympic archery team, but won an Oscar.
Here are 20 well-known celebrities whose talents extend to the physical.
