For even the greatest of professional athletes, not every day goes perfectly. There are missteps, stupid mistakes, or lapses in judgment; these things happen to everybody, whether we like it or not. The problem, of course, is that for many athletes people are watching their every move and are waiting for them to screw up.
Not every fail has to be serious, though. For every Michael Phelps DUI or Adrian Peterson child-abuse accusation, there are ridiculous pictures of people like Kobe Bryant all in white or Tom Brady cradling a baby goat. Sometimes, it's good for athletes to be able to laugh at themselves.
From the serious to the inane, here's a look at Your Favorite Athletes' Biggest Fails.
