The Mark Sanchez Butt Fumble is Still ESPN's Worst of the Worst Play as We Approach Training Camp

By Jason Lisk

ESPN does many good things, and many annoying and not-so-good things. I think we have to agree, though, that successfully trolling by having the Butt Fumble continually up as the Worst of the Worst nominee every week since it occurred is alongside Outside the Lines and 30 for 30 productions among the network’s finest work.

Some Jets fans are annoyed that the run continues and would like to end it. We are now up to 33 weeks and counting–a Ken Jennings-like run–since the Butt Fumble became a thing. This week, the Butt Fumble goes up against Carly Rae Jepsen. In early voting, the Butt Fumble is again winning in a landslide.

You might remember the Carly Rae Jepsen horrible first pitch. It has several things working for it and would otherwise be a fine candidate. First, she doesn’t even get it further than ten feet. Second, get outside and get some sun on those legs, maybe? Finally, it brings back memories of a thousand Stephen Douglas posts featuring women’s softball teams.

That would ordinarily be a strong contender with all of those combined elements. Of course, on the other hand, Butt Fumble.
