The Softest Athletes in Sports History

27. Mike Ribeiro

Sport: Hockey

If you thought the flop was only reserved for soccer players, think again. Following that old adage, "do what it takes to win," Mike Ribeiro had an acting performance worthy of an Oscar during the 2004 playoffs against the Boston Bruins when he pretended to nearly die after getting checked by an opposing player. Moments later, Ribeiro can be seen laughing it off and even taunting the penalized individual. But you know what they say, karma is a bitch and dude needed an emergency tracheotomy after taking a high stick in 2010. Hey, you get what you give, right?
