Congrats, Mark Sanchez and Brandon Moore’s ass: It’s the Buttfumble’s one-year anniversary (GIF/vid)
On Nov. 22, 2013, Thanksgiving Day, the New York Jets and the New England Patriots squared off in what ultimately would turn out to be a humiliating 49-19 blowout loss for Gang Green. An incident also occurred during the game that signified the laughable beginning — or midpoint, or even further down the line, some may argue — of the end (no pun intended) of quarterback Mark Sanchez”s fall from grace as the Jets signal caller. Although some may argue when this salacious story emerged marked the true end of Sanchez’s reign.
Yep, one year ago today the Buttfumble happened.
On an ill-fated run/scramble, Sanchez ran face-first into offensive lineman Brandon Moore’s butt, setting off an absolute hilarity explosion on the interwebs that still resonates to this day.
So, let us commemorate arguably the most hilarious sports blooper of this era — or any other — with repeated viewings of both the GIF above (via Deadspin) or the video below, which has a “Yakety Sax” soundtrack to up the comedic value. Not that the Buttfumble needs it.
Happy anniversary, Mark Sanchez and Brandon Moore’s ass. The traditional gift for the first anniversary is paper-themed, but in this case, toilet paper may be more apropos.
