Sports Figures in Santa Claus Suits

Athletes Santa Claus Suit 01 560x298The Alex Ovechkin image above came from a team produced holiday video a few seasons ago. It’s awesome, hilarious, and awful all wrapped up into one. But he’s not the only one to put on the red hat of jolly old St. Nick. Many athletes, coaches, and commentators have put on a full Santa suit. Far more have gone with just the Santa hat, but even with that minimal level of festiveness, we can’t help but chuckle at the image. Nothing makes us happier this time of year than pro-athletes dressed as Kris Kringle, so we wanted to share that joy with you. In celebration of the season, we’re proud to present this extensive gallery of your favorite sports figures in Santa costumes. See if you can identify all of these guys celebrating Christmas in the best way possible.
