[[labelnote:Explanation]]This picture showing off the EpicFail of the Seahawks' Offensive Line at protecting Russell Wilson quickly became a mockery towards those who ignore how much of a necessity it is for a football team to have lineman that can protect their quarterback.[[/labelnote]]

* "They'll be dancing in the streets of Raith tonight!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]A remark made by a BBC commentator after Scottish football club Raith Rovers, who are actually based in the town of Kirkcaldy, earned a shock cup victory in the late 1960s. Variants of this phrase are often used to parody clubs who have names that in no way resemble the place they're actually from, most famously Welsh club Total Network Solutions (currently known as The New Saints)[[/labelnote]]

* [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/things-tim-howard-could-save Tim Howard can save anything!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]During the Round of 16 in the 2014 World Cup, the United States took on Belgium. Although the US eventually lost the match to Belgium 2-1 in extra time, their performance was mostly praised, particularly the goalie Tim Howard, who had a 50-year record of ''16'' saves during the game. Howard's exemplary performance as a goalkeeper gave rise to this meme, which depicts him, among other things, [[WhoShotJFK blocking the bullet that killed JFK]], [[Disney/TheLionKing keeping Mufasa from falling to his death]], [[Disney/{{Frozen}} blocking Hans's sword]], and preventing Music/{{Janet Jackson}}'s infamous "wardrobe malfunction." Briefly, the Wikipedia page for the United States Secretary of Defense listed Howard as the incumbent.[[/labelnote]]

* yfw da bears win the superb owl. Originating on 4chan's /sp/ (sports) board and accompanied by a picture of a happy-looking bear, it's typically cited as an example of the delusional nature of Bears fans, who seem to go into ''every'' season thinking they'll win it all.
** The "superb owl" spelling error has spilled into other sports championships, such as the Worlds Eries, the NBA Champion's Hip/NBAF Inals, and the venerable Creator/StanLee Cup.

* The Buffalo Bills are often referred to as the Razorcakes after a popular analogy for the team -- a cake that looks great and tastes delicious at first but is actually filled with razors. They've certainly earned the moniker -- there was a brief period in the 2011 season when they were at the top of their division after upsetting the New England Patriots, but they missed the playoffs after losing six straight games
* Alex Rodriguez as a centaur. An ex-girlfriend of A-Rod's claimed he had a self portrait of himself as a centaur above his bed. Everyone who heard this rightly found it the most ridiculous thing ever, and years later it still gets mocked, even by actual news sources like ESPN.

* Cigar Guy. For those not in the know, Tiger Woods at one point lobbed a shot right into a photographer's face (thankfully saved by an unfortunate camera). While the image of a blurry ball about to smack someone in the noggin is hilarious, photoshoppers worldwide focused in on a strange looking fellow who to all appearances was grinning ear to ear behind a ridiculous combination of PornStache, cigar, and a ginger wig that looks like a turban upon first glance.
