* "Trust the Process".[[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans of former Philadelphia [=76ers=] general manager/president of basketball operations Sam Hinkie saw merit in Hinkie's unorthodox team-rebuilding strategy of eschewing the free-agent market in favor of accumulating late-round draft picks that would hopefully yield star players later down the line and pull the Sixers out of the NBA's basement. The plan naturally had [[BrokenBase its fair share of vocal supporters and detractors]], as the Sixers finished with a woeful 46 wins in the three seasons with Hinkie as GM (he left the team with four games to go in the 2015-16 season, a few months after he lost his president job; his resulting 13-page resignation letter would later become a joke in itself).[[/labelnote]]

Joel Embiid, the center whom Hinkie hoped to be the linchpin of the Sixers' offense, would adopt "The Process" as his personal nickname in reference to the phrase.[[/labelnote]]

Bendtner is a Danish striker who currently plays for Nottingham Forest in England's second level, the Football League Championship, but is best known for his long tenure at Arsenal FC in the UsefulNotes/EnglishPremierLeague. When he was signed, he proclaimed that he would be the top scorer in the EPL within a couple of months.

It slowly evolved into him being "The Greatest Striker That Ever Lived" (or TGSTEL), and he became known as Lord Bendtner.

* Mouyes [[labelnote:Explanation]]David Moyes' dismal season in charge of Manchester United in 2013-14 led to many ">Moyes" posts throughout the season, from start to end. In the meantime, Chelsea's Jose Mourinho had a relatively poor start. Someone on /sp/ noticed a similarity with their names, and started posting ">Mouyes" when Chelsea had a poor result. Soon, Mouyes became a nickname for Mourinho. The meme went relatively dormant in 2014-15 when Chelsea won the league, but came back in full force in 2015-16 when Mourinho had a nightmare season, with Chelsea languishing near the relegation zone, before getting sacked.[[/labelnote]]

* Don't let this page distract you from the fact that the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Golden State Warriors, who had the best regular-season record in NBA history and were dominating the playoffs, were heavy favorites to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals. Despite getting off to a commanding 3-1 lead, the Warriors went on to lose the last three games, resulting in Cleveland breaking its long-standing championship drought. Variations of the above phrase ran wild on social media for weeks afterwards in response to the collapse.[[/labelnote]]
** In a possible moment of LaserGuidedKarma, the Cleveland Indians ended up giving away a 3-1 lead to the Chicago Cubs in the 2016 World Series just five months later, which also broke another long-standing championship drought. And yes, people did take the opportunity to turn this meme against it original source.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i7VKQwDS2s "Buttfumble 2.0"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] The disaster that was the fake-punt attempt performed by the Colts in their 2015 matchup against the Patriots has a lot of folk in agreement that it may finally dethrone the original Buttfumble done by Mark Sanchez. In this instance, the Colts had a 4th down with three yards to go on their own side of the field. Normally, one would punt in this situation. However, the Colts came out in a bizarre formation where the entire offense save for the snapper and one other player lined up to the far right of the ball. When the ball was snapped, the player was immediately swarmed by Patriots defenders, turning over the ball on downs and resulting in a Patriots touchdown in the next series. Once it happened, there was a rush among commentators and journalists to come up with a name for this disastrous play. Some of those names include "What The Chuck" and "Snapfu". [[/labelnote]]

Wenger often is indignant when a player on his club commits a bad foul which leads to that player being sent off or conceding a penalty.

This has been widely mocked by nearly everyone who doesn't support Arsenal, and even some Arsenal supporters make fun of him for falling back on that. It eventually became an AscendedMeme, with Wenger quoting it during a skit in Sport Relief 2016.[[/labelnote]]

Wenger often is indignant when a player on his club commits a bad foul which leads to that player being sent off or conceding a penalty. Whenever he questions such a decision in the post-match interview, it's guaranteed that he'll claim confusion as to why such a decision was given, saying that he didn't see whatever it was that led to the decision against his club, no matter how blatant or visible the moment was. This has been widely mocked by nearly everyone who doesn't support Arsenal, and even some Arsenal supporters make fun of him for falling back on that. It eventually became an AscendedMeme, with Wenger quoting it during a skit in Sport Relief 2016.[[/labelnote]]



* Floyd Mayweather just wants a hug. [[labelnote:Explanation]] In one of the most hyped fights in boxing history since Ali and Foreman's "Rumble in the Jungle," Floyd Mayweather took on Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015. The fight was billed as the "Fight of the Century," and many otherwise non-boxing fans tuned in to watch it. The fight, however, proved to be extremely underwhelming, mostly due to Mayweather's defense-oriented strategy that involved repeatedly putting Pacquiao in a clinch (i.e., a hold, which in boxing stops the fight since the clinch must be broken up). Almost immediately people began making jokes involving Mayweather "hugging" Pacquiao; in light of Mayweather's troubles involving domestic violence, many people joked that he simply "didn't understand that he was supposed to hit Manny and hug his wife."[[/labelnote]]

[[labelnote:Explanation]] During Michael Jordan's hall of fame induction speech in 2009, Associated Press photographer Stephan Savioa caught the photo of Jordan crying & seemingly weeping as he tried to spoke his induction speech. This photo was first used as a meme in an image macro made in 2012, explaining why did he bought the-then Charlotte Bobcats; which in the shortened 2011-12 season scored the worst winning percentage in NBA history. The most common usage, however, was photoshopping Jordan's face and replacing another person's face with Jordan's face; usually a sportsperson whenever him/her or his/her team or the team that they supported loses an important match.[[/labelnote]]

* "Trust the Process".[[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans of former Philadelphia [=76ers=] general manager/president of basketball operations Sam Hinkie saw merit in Hinkie's unorthodox team-rebuilding strategy of eschewing the free-agent market in favor of accumulating late-round draft picks that would hopefully yield star players later down the line and pull the [=76ers=] out of the NBA's basement. The plan naturally had [[BrokenBase its fair share of vocal supporters and detractors]], as the [=76ers=] finished with a woeful 46 wins in the three seasons with Hinkie as GM (he left the team with four games to go in the 2015-16 season, a few months after he lost his president job; his resulting 13-page resignation letter would later become a joke in itself).[[/labelnote]]

In recognition of that, one Wigan fan, Sean Kennedy, uploaded a video of him singing Italian singer Gala's song "Freed from Desire", which he titled "Will griggs on fire". Kennedy replaced the words "Freed from desire/Mind and senses purified" from the actual song into "Will Grigg's on fire/Your defense is terrified". Needless to say, the song quickly went viral, becoming a popular chant worldwide (especially in Grigg's home country, Northern Ireland), and saw extended use by Northern Irish fans during the Euro 2016 even though Grigg didn't play a single game during the Euros. Kennedy would later receive a free Wigan 2016-17 season ticket from Wigan's chairman David Sharpe as a reward for the massive success of the chant.[[/labelnote]]
