All good things come to an end, but not quickly enough for New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez who has seen his infamous ‘butt fumble’ moment atop the ESPN ‘Not Top 10′ list for months and months on end (4o weeks, to be exact).
Now, after an extended run, ESPN has decided to retire the clip, placing it deep into the Bristol archives.
Per Front Row:
There will be comfort for Sanchez in knowing that the “Butt Fumble” – the Nov. 22, 2012 play in which he stumbled into the backside of offensive lineman Brandon Moore, fumbled, and saw the New England Patriots’ Steve Gregory return it for a touchdown – has been moved to the “Not Top 10″ rafters.
“We are retiring it this week due to the start of a new NFL season, and the feeling that it was time to start fresh,” said Senior Coordinating Producer Mark Summer. “The ‘Butt Fumble’ has won the ‘Not Top 10′ each week since last Thanksgiving, and we’re not sure anything could top it.”
If only Mark Sanchez would give us more debacles to poke fun at.
