Well folks, 2020 has done it again. Just when you think you’ve seen and heard it all, BANG something else happens that blows our heads like that guy in Total Recall. What happened now, you ask? Zack Wheeler, the Phillies ace, has injured his thumb on his throwing hand while…

….thanks Joe.

While this is infuriating and absolutely cl***ic as a Phillies fan, it did get me thinking about some of the other great pants mishaps in history.

When Spongebob ripped his pants…

Justin Beiber’s pants fall down while performing…

U.S. swimmer Rickey Berens tears his suit as he blasts off the starting block…

Devin Hester’s pants get pulled down by Eagles CB Dimitri Patterson…

Joey Fatone ripped his pants on DWTS and during the filming of the “Bye Bye Bye” music video..

And who can forget this GOAT?

Stick to shorts, Zack. They’re much easier to deal with.
