To properly welcome us to 2012, sportspickle.com has put together a slideshow of the best sports faces of 2011. It's full of craziness with athlete mugshots, crazy fan get-ups, and of course, hockey players smiling regularly.
2. Drug Balls Blocked
A Peruvian man was caught trying to smuggle almost five pounds of cocaine, hidden in deflated soccer balls, into Newark Liberty International Airport last week. Luckily, his balls were busted before they could enter the country.
3. NBA Team Name Origins
Sportsnet.ca has put together a list detailing the origins of each NBA team's name. Did you know that in 1986 the Miami Heat were nearly named the Miami Vice? Or that the Utah Jazz was originally from New Orleans, where the name made a lot more sense?
4. Getting In On The Action

5. Lambeau Heap
Packers linebacker Brad Jones took security into his own hands Sunday, laying out a fan who ran onto the field. Maybe this fan should try a sport where the object of the game isn't for huge men to hit other huge men as hard as possible.
