Bill Buckner, baseball's biggest goat, will live in infamy. See sports' biggest flubs.

Don’t worry — this doesn’t mean a butt fumble will never happen again. It just means Mark Sanchez won’t be taken down by the same rear end that felled him last Thanksgiving.

Jets guard Brandon Moore is retiring from the NFL, Adam Caplan reports.

Moore played 144 games in his career, starting 137 in a row. But his most-remembered moment will not be the consistent protection he provided the likes of Sanchez, Kellen Clemens, Chad Pennington, Brooks Bollinger, Vinny Testaverde, Quincy Carter and even Brett Favre.

It will be this legendary moment in history . . .

In the aftermath of last season's Thanksgiving night disaster, Moore was not pleased about becoming the butt of jokes around football. He particularly did not enjoy being mocked on national television by NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth, saying the following week: "I’ve never really been a big fan of his."

Hey, at least Jets fans didn't hate on him.

May retirement treat you better than Mark Sanchez, Brandon Moore.

Oh, and just because, enjoy the play again in black and white. Sorry, Brandon.
