Fans of funny football games will long remember November 22 as the anniversary of Mark Sanchez’s « Butt Fumble ». This unusual event celebrated its 10th anniversary already on Tuesday.
On a play as funny as it was embarrassing for the main interested party, the pivot, then a member of the New York Jets, failed to return the oval object to his ball carrier and thus had to try to run with himself.
But while trying to get back to where the play started, Sanchez fell, hitting his head on the buttocks of his offensive lineman Brandon Moore, losing the ball in the process. This one was picked up by New England Patriots safety Steve Gregory, who even netted the middle finger.
This story will undoubtedly haunt forever the one who spent eight seasons in the NFL, but that did not prevent him from becoming a television analyst after his playing career, he who works for the FOX network during the broadcast of some matches.
