Jocks remembered for the wrong reasons

I just read this.....From Fox Sports.....

As the theme from Cheers states, we all want to go where everybody knows our name. Sometimes, though, people might recognize your name for the wrong reasons.

Professional athletes are often remembered as icons, heroes and superstars. But off-field transgressions, such as run-ins with the law or other scandals, can sully a career a la O.J. Simpson or Pete Rose.
Off-field episodes can ruin a rosy recollection just as quickly as an on-field mishap. An infamous blunder or an ill-timed mistake can overshadow a successful career and quickly morph that positive memory into a negative one.

Here's a list of 10 athletes who flubbed on the field and would like to get to a place where everybody doesn't know their name.
