* After AustralianRulesFootball team Essendon won a close-fought match against the West Coast Eagles in 1993, Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy celebrated by whirling his jacket above his head. When the two teams faced off again in the finals, with Essendon winning, Essendon fans celebrated in the same manner, and when the Eagles won the next year, their fans did the same. The "jacket wave" has now become a tradition in matches between the two teams. Fittingly, Sheedy's last game as coach was against the Eagles.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4y0P4IdZDTE FORM A FUCKING WALL!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Coined by Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy during a timeout while his team was down a point versus the San Antonio Spurs, on defense, with seconds left on the game clock. The Pistons wound up intercepting the inbounds pass and fast breaking away for the dunk, completing the upset and creating a legendary meme and rallying cry for Detroit.[[/labelnote]]

* [[UsefulNotes/EnglishPremierLeague Arsenal]] midfielder Aaron Ramsey has become a memetic walking Manga/DeathNote thanks to several famous people dying shortly after he happened to score a goal. This coincidence was noticed in 2013 when Music/WhitneyHouston died, and when this meme seemed to have died in 2015, it returned in full force in January 2016 with Music/DavidBowie and Creator/AlanRickman's deaths.

[[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]]

* "Buttfumble 2.0" The disaster that was the fake-punt attempt performed by the Colts in their 2015 match-up against the Patriots has a lot of folk in agreement that it may finally dethrone the original Buttfumble done by Mark Sanchez. 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".

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]]

* Nicklas Bendtner, full stop. Bendtner is a Danish striker who currently plays for VfL Wolfsburg in the German Bundesliga, but prior to that, he was a player at Arsenal FC in the EnglishPremierLeague. When he was signed, he proclaimed that he would be the top scorer in the EPL within a couple of months. People started making jokes for why he didn't do that, such as that he was purposefully holding back. It slowly evolved into him being "The Greatest Striker That Ever Lived" (or TGSTEL), and he became known as Lord Bendtner. Now, he's essentially become the Chuck Norris of [[TheBeautifulGame football]].

* Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "I did not see the incident." [[labelnote:explanation]]Related to Arsene Wenger's selective myopia. 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.[[/labelnote]]
