It is the iconic picture of U.S. soccer: Brandi Chastain celebrating her Cup-winning penalty in the final against China by spontanously taking her shirt off and falling to her knees in her sports bra. No yellow card on this instance, just one of the most famous photographs in soccer history.

Chastain's take: "Momentary insanity, nothing more, nothing less. I wasn't thinking about anything. I thought, 'This is the greatest moment of my life on the soccer field.'
