Double Dipping

It's no secret that some people are just flat-out better than others. For females, it's the girls who get the good hair, the fast metabolism and all the brains who attract the most envy. And for males, it's the guys who can run the fastest, hit the hardest and make the most three-pointers. 

I'm pretty sure most guys would give up anything (money, steaks, girlfriends) to play a professional sport, even for a day. Making it to the college level is hard enough, let alone going all the way pro.

Some professional athletes have to take it to the next level and try to outshine the competition in more than one sport. Take a look at a few show-offs who have tried to take their game to a new level.

Michael Jordan
Though basketball's legendary star played for a Chicago White Sox farm league, he never actually made a debut in a MLB game. At least he'll always have Space Jam.

Deion Sanders
The NFL hotshot played in the MLB part-time for nine years. He is the only person to play in a World Series and a Super Bowl. Now those are some good genes!

Chad Ochocinco
With the NFL lockout looming over his ever-growing head, Ochocinco looked to his "childhood dream" and tried out for Sporting Kansas City, a Major League Soccer team. He didn't make the final cut.

Tony Romo
An avid babe/golfer,  NFL quarterback Tony Romo has been playing in US Open qualifying rounds, hoping to make it to the big competition. I'll pull for this cutie, no matter what he's trying for.
