Twelve wacky moments in Super Bowl history.: A nice link before Super Bowl XL. I haven't been along enough to witness all of these and unfortunatly was not in the room during infamous number two, but I'm sure these bring back memories for many people.

Hey, how about the Lester Hayes interview?

I so remember the ferret commercial. That one and the one where the frogs attack Louie is just a classic. I so wish that they'd replay all those budwiser frog commercials again. They're like a staple from my youth.

When the "Great Gazoo" caught Leon Lett from behind, it was probably my happiest Super Bowl memory as a Bills fan.

Don Beebe catching Leon Lett was one of the greatest hustle plays I'd ever seen until Ben Watson run about 120 yards to keep Champ Bailey from scoring on a 100-yard interception return in the Broncos-Patriots playoff game this year.

Indeed, kirk. Sadly, neither of them affected the outcome of the game.

I remember watching that Bears game as a kid, and wondering why my family was cheering for the big guy (fridge) to score the touchdown when the guy with the curly hair ( Payton) had did all the work. I read that Ditka still to this day regrets not putting Sweetness in to score the touchdown. Hey Grum, what about Thurman Thomas forgetting his helmet? Just kidding those 90's Bills had some great teams.

Nice link. I had forgotten about some of these. The "hangover" is one my wacky momnets of past Superbowls.

I wish the writer Jeff Gordon could be consitent with his dates. One minute he's talking 1993, the next he's blabbing about SB XXV11. Is it just me, or does anyone else care a rat's arse about these Roman numerals? O-kay, now for a crazy moment... you'll have to forgive me, my mind's a blur, it might have happened 10-15 years ago. There was a Superbowl where an official or some security plain clothes dude was standing directly behind an endzone. It happened in the first half, I believe it was on a long pass and the receiver and tackler hit this guy so hard and fast that he didn't bounce, but rather his legs were pinned and his head slapped the ground. The guy laid motionless and the crowd was silent. The replay made it appear worse than a concussion. The game was held up for a r-e-a-l-l-y long time. I never did find out what happened to that guy, nor can remember what year or Roman numeral it was. Does anybody else remember this??

I can't remember if it was the Super Bowl or a playoff game a few years ago, but the drunken Joe Namath interview with the female reporter where he uttered the now infamous "Can I kiss you?" was truly the wackiest for me!

posted by weeklyguy at 11:51 AM on January 31, 2006

That drunken Namath moment to Suzie Kolber was NOT a Superbowl, nor a playoff game. It was a regular season Sunday nighter on ESPN, probably memorable only for Namath's humiliation.

Len Pasquerelli has his own list. His #7 when Jackie Smith dropped the world's easiest 6-pointer in the Dallas-Pittsburgh SB of '80 has to be on every list.

I have to say that my favorite plays will be the following -The Mike Jones (who?) save at the 1 yard line in the Rams-Titans clash. That play MADE that game (literally) and I am so glad that I was a part of that game (well, watching that game). -ANY Adam Vinateri field goal (just pick one...they all came in memorable moments during the game...even the one last year, he had to work to get that one in I think) -Desmond Howard's LONG AS HELL kick return against New England. I remember seeing that one and thinking, "man, that's incredible"
