Pete Sampras, Clearly Not a Fan of No-Show Socks

You know your sock tan is bad when it looks like you are actually wearing socks. Those feet are as white as any pair of gym knits. But look how serene he is. That awful tan isn't fazing him at all (see: Nike money).

Michael Phelps, America's Golden Boy

That's pretty bad. Phelps is only in the spotlight once every four years and he still managed to get caught with a tan line. The good news for him is that a bad tan can be overlooked if you win 22 medals for your country.

Now that Tebow is over at ESPN, he no longer has to worry about tan lines. But with all the Tebowmania, it's surprising that his tan line didn't make the front page. Hopefully he got some tanning tips from Mark Sanchez, who has had plenty of experience getting a perfect tan.

With his steroid scandal, Lance Armstrong has bigger problems than a bad tan. But seriously, how is this level of contrast even possible? Forget PEDs, he should of gone on Oprah to apologize for these tan lines. Zzing!

Apparently No One Has Maria Sharapova's Back

Normally Sharapova looks beautiful in every photo, whether she is on the runway or in the middle of a serve. But even she can be caught slipping though, rocking a pretty bad racerback tan courtesy of Nike Tennis.

The Entire 2012 NCAA Track and Field Championship Has One Giant Tan Line

If there was a sport called "synchronized tanning" these girls would all make the team. There's no way this happened by accident. They had to have coordinated before the race for funsies.

Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan, Legends With Legen...dary Tans

Being two of the most successful American runners ever does not get you excused from this list. At least Goucher's isn't as obvious. Shalane Flanagan holds records in the 3000m, 5000m, and most aggressive thigh tan in the USA.

Phil Mickelson Is No Master...At Applying Sunscreen

Tomas Berdych Bares All
