Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Yesterday, Andy Murray beat Juan Martin Del Potro at the ATP World Tour Finals in London. Hooray Andy Murray! But yesterday, something else also happened. Yesterday, the rap song above surfaced. On the track Autograph, about the attention sports stars get from autograph hunters, the tennis world No 4 raps in his monotone voice: “During Wimbledon it really gets crazy. My hand cramps up and my mind gets hazy.” That got me to thinking. Thinking, what are the best athlete singing performances of all time? Brilliant, right? I thought so. So lets do this. Like we always knew this. Like Carl Lewis. The best athlete singing performances of all time:
Foot on the pedal, never ever false metal. Engine running hotter than a boiling kettle. -Beastie Boys
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! You can call him Bro Sweets. You can call him Choo-Choo. You can call him Dolemite Jenkins. You can call him whatever you like. But know this sports fans, you better be calling him the best running back in the National Football League. Because, that’s what he is.

1. One unhappy camper. One very unhappy camper. Hello muddah, hello faddah. Here I am at Camp Granada. Camp is very entertaining, and they say we’ll have some fun if it stops raining! Will it ever stop raining at Camp Greenada? First the Truth and Tony Allen go down. Down goes our playoff hopes! Then the tanking. The lottery banking. Turned out to be as worthless as the Central African Republic Francing. Yi Jianlian? Really? A poor man’s Pau Gasol. A destitute man’s Pau Gasol. A hobo’s Pau Gasol. Can’t we just trade the pick for the real Pau Gasol? I’m beside myself right now. Wahhhhh! I wanted the Gigantic-O. I hate him now. Wahhhh! I was all right, for a while. I could smile for a while. But I saw you last night. You held my hand so tight as you stopped to say hello. Oh, you wished me well. You couldn’t tell that I’ve been crying over you.
