Monday Morning Shit Storm

The Big Pete Icehouse had a great Idea for this week's MMSS

The best cameo by any athlete in a movie.

It doesn't have to be sports related, any movie, any role.
-Note(We are now including TV shows)


I thought about this all Sunday, and I went back and forth on my picks. I couldn't decide so I chose two

First is Shaq playing the infamous Neon Bodeaux in Blue Chips

It's one of the better sports movies, and Shaq is great in it.



Next is LT in Any Given Sunday.
LT is still one of my favorite football players and yeah the movie is a giant cliche, but he shines.




Let the shit storm begin.

  8. Kevin Garnett in Rebound. The one about Earl Manigault, not the Martin Lawrence one.

  22. I think Jim Kelly in Necessary Roughness deserves notice.

  23. Not that it's a movie, and not that it's a cameo, but Manning's United Way Sketch (especially in light of Phelps' painful SNL stint) deserves some props.

  24. That's a good one. If we're doing SNL sketches, we can include the one where Walter Payton tells the Church Lady that he likes the feeling of knowing he could kill any man on the street with his bare hands.

  25. Oh man, we forgot about Marino in Ace Ventura. "Hey Ace! Got any more of that gum?"

  26. Bubba Smith in all of the Police Academy Series. That one might take all.

  27. Rick Fox as 'Chick' in He Got Game was pretty fantastic. I mean, he takes Jesus "Ray Allen" Shuttlesworth around college, making out with white girls while 'tha sistaz' (who Chick derides as making him work too hard) disapprove. Then he takes Jesus to a rocking ass dorm party, where he is eventually introduced to Chasey Lain and some other porn star. Right before a wacky threesome ensues, Chick offers such words of advice/encouragement, "Brooklyn is in the house. Keep it real."

  28. We may need a ruling on the use of pro wrestlers. They are, after all, more actors than athletes. Can I just get it off my chest and say I want to nominate Andre the Giant for his role as Fezzig in The Princess Bride? He does have all the great one-liners.

    "What's my way"
    "When he runs around the corner, bash his head in with a rock."
    "My way's not very sporting.

    and...

    "No more rhymes, I mean it!"
    "Anybody want a peanut?"

  29. Steve Austin played football at UNT, so he's valid. Kevin Nash played basketball for Tennessee, so he's eligible for his roles in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze; and Grandma's Boy.

  30. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Played ball at the U. Although the Rock was the best wrestler to ever live and the most underrated actor I'm going to have to go with his role in DOOOOOOM!!!!!! Perhaps the most misunderstood movie of our generation.
