Money is money right? I guess if the dollars were right I’d endorse dog sh$t if I had to. Part of being a professional athlete is signing endorsement contracts. Most of the big ones carry a ton of money. If you think about it though, which endorsement deals are actually really cool? Nike, Under Armour, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, etc? Unfortunately, there are a lot of lemons out there that athletes get sucked into.

There are so many it’s tough to count, but we are going to give it a go and pick 5 of the crappiest endorsement deals ever. Feel free to give input.

Take a look…….

5. Hertz and O.J. Simpson Team Up

Rental Cars eh? Nothing like seeing an athlete hop in a rental car that makes me want to use that rental car next time I travel. See I just don’t get this, and we’re going to see a lot of it, you don’t see Bill Gates advertising condums. O.J. Simpson knows as much about rental cars, as Bill Gates knows about sex.

4. Guitar Hero and Athletes

These four fuggin’ guys needed money from Guitar Hero. This was a hit or miss, and I just wasn’t feeling seeing these dudes in underwear. Weak. Guitar Hero, really?

3. Honda Scooters and Jim McMahon

I don’t know where to begin with this one.. Honda Scooters.. Scooters? You’re a freekin’ badass NFL quarterback and you’re hawking scooters. weak.

2. Michael Jordan and his Undies

Hanes has dumped boat loads of money into their underwear marketing. To be honest with you, I could give a rat’s ass about what underwear Michael Jordan is wearing, and I think Jordan is a God. I’m sure MJ needed the extra bucks, so I can’t blame him for marketing underwear.

1. Raffy Palmeiro and His Boner

Whoops! Maybe I should have rethought this one. This commercial is just God-Awful. Cardinal sin, athletes need to avoid sex stuff.

I don’t know how the hell you can say MJ “probably needed the money”.
