Have you ever caught yourself watching a sport, see a particular player and thought to yourself “How the hell is this guy good? Look at this guy!” And usually when you’re thinking this to yourself it’s in reference to said athlete not really looking the part.

Most athletes “look” like athletes which is to say they are in shape, have the kinds of physiques we all aspire to have and move around like no human being can move.

But some guys look like everyday Joe’s. Here are seven in particular….

Dustin Pedroia

Of all the players in the major leagues, Dustin Pedroia definitely tops this list. I mean of every single guy out there he’s the one that if you saw in a bar you’d think you’d be able to kick his ass. Hell that might even be true but you’d never believe that he was a former AL MVP. He’s 5’8 and weighs like 157 lbs soaking wet. Have you seen him on the field? Even without his shirt one he’s flabby. It’s truly remarkable.

J.J. Barea

If there’s a Dustin Pedroia of the NBA it’s gotta be JJ Barea. He’s short, not ripped by any means. Hell he doesn’t even look like any kind of player but he’s good and he’s a world champion. At least Mugsy Bogues looked like he was in phenomenal shape.

John Daly

In today’s golf world many of the players look like they’re in shape. Granted golf doesn’t appear to be the athletic man’s sport but the more modern the game is the more these guys are starting to look like athletes. Daly never had that and probably never will. Craig Stadler is another one.

Bartolo Colon

Does he look like a Walrus? I can’t figure out what the hell he looks like but it sure as hell ain’t a ball player.

Glen Davis

Baby Davis! He just looks like some sort of lost child who doesn’t know how to do Math and he’s looking for his mama. Sure he’s really tall but this guy is pure flab. How about Paul Pierce? He’s another one. Dude never lifted a weight in his life.

Nearly Every Single Kicker in the NFL

There are a few that are pretty ripped and in shape but for the most part these guys are all leg and nothing else.

Peyton Manning

You’re telling me you would look at this guy and think “NFL Quarterback?” No chance. Sure he’s kind of a big dude but he looks more like the Southern Douche fraternity guy who you always want to punch in the face. Then again Jay Cutler holds that title for me. Just for the record, I love Peyton Manning.

Larry Bird

The least athletic looking best athlete of all time is far and away Larry Bird.

Are you high?Did you eat something rotten? Federer doesn’t look like an athlete? Yeah, and Ferrari’s don’t look like sports cars.

Peyton Manning? Come on, Eli looks way less qualified. Its not even a contest. When I saw the title of this article, my mind immediately shot to Eli Manning.

I’d say Ben Roethlisberger looks more out of shape than Peyton Manning. Rapelisberger looks like a lump of fat, it’s amazing how good a QB he is with all that flab to lug around!
