10/03/2022 Celebrity Sports Lovers   Leave a comment

I’m not a huge sports fan but many people are. I’m strictly a baseball fan and have an interest in only one or two football games a season. Surprisingly many of our most famous celebrities played sports of one kind or another in their younger days. Check these sports fans out.

  • Matthew Perry – Ranked teenage tennis star at age 13 in Ottawa.
  • Kurt Russell – Left acting for Minor League baseball in 1971.
  • Queen Latifah – Power forward on two state championship basketball teams.
  • Richard Gere – Won a gymnastic scholarship to the University of Massachusetts.
  • Tommy Lee Jones – Was a champion polo player.

  • Keanu Reeves – Voted MVP on his high school hockey team.
  • Billy Crystal – Attended college on a baseball scholarship.
  • Jack Palance – Was once a professional boxer.
  • Sarah Michelle Gellar – Was a highly placed competitive figure skater.
  • Chevy Chase – Once worked as a tennis professional.

A guess there were a few surprises on that list but it’s nice to know that under all of that Hollywood nonsense lives a bunch of regular sports loving folks.
