There are many professional athletes that go about their jobs, earn their big paychecks, and live normal, healthy and friendly lives… But then there are other athletes who let all that money and fame go to their heads. When this happen, these athletes become jerks. In most cases, we have to imagine these athletes weren’t born as jerks – though it certainly seems like a few of them were. In either event, jerks they are, and it’s incumbent upon us to let you know exactly who they are. So come on a tour with us!
