It happens to the best of us. We all have moments in life we regret. Hell they practically happen every day. But not all of us are in the spotlight during most of our days. The majority of us have the ability to cover up our mistakes and even hide our faults.

But not athletes. At least not high profile athletes. There ain’t much you can do if a photo gets leaked or you’re caught in a crappy moment on television. I guess all you can do is either laugh or do your best to have a better current image of yourself.

Here are 15 moments athletes wish they could have back…..

Thanks to Bleacher Report for these photos.

Bob Huggins and Da’Sean Butler

Yes Huggins was “consoling” him after a loss but come on.

Tommy Kelly Loses His Pants

High pressured ball game. Gotta watch those shorts bud.

Michael Jordan High

Now that’s a role model picture

Flavia Zoccari

There’s nothing to really say here other than that really blows.

Steve Nash

Now that’s just pure embarrassment right there.

Drew Gooden

The beard is enough but the hand gesture? No.

Devin Hester is Pantsed

And on Primetime TV no less.

Luke Walton is Smushed

Yup, that’s Karl Malone

Sonny Liston

It just sucks to be the guy on the ground in the most famous boxing picture ever.

Barry Bonds anything Young

Yeah, sure he didn’t do steroids.

Wayne Rooney and Ronaldo

Most infamous soccer picture ever.

Don Nelson and Stephen Jackson


Rex Grossman

Too bad this is what he’ll be remembered for most.

Phil Mickelson

Most famous golf picture ever.

Running Commitment

Jesus man, take a pit stop will ya?

The Da’Sean Butler one is actually not consoling for a lose but because Da’Sean’s knee got destroyed which led to the lose

Still reposted?

The Ronaldo one is so obviously ‘shopped it’s ridiculous that it’s still circulated around the internet…

The Huggins-Butler picture is WRONG!!! Butler deee-stroyed his knee about 30 seconds before this picture. Butler was the heart and soul of that West Virginai team, and this was how is college career ended.

I am not a Huggins fan, but he earned my respect for that moment.

Nattyb – get a clue and change this to “14 Photos…”
