'Masked Singer' Unmasks Sports Figure Known For Embarrassing Moment

Fans weren't about to let the ex-jock forget about his historically inept play.

The Masked Singer” unmasked the celebrity in the Baby Alien costume on Wednesday, revealing him to be a much-mocked figure in New York sports history.

And fans clearly haven’t forgotten him. After the ex-jock was voted off the show and removed his getup, they hit Twitter with jokes and clips of this guy’s truly embarrassing moment.

You can see those tweets below but first, play along.

 And none of the panelists on the Fox show guessed his identity.

It was former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. The ex-USC Trojan actually guided the Jets to two AFC championship games. But that’s not what he’s best remembered for.

On Thanksgiving in 2012 against the New England Patriots, Sanchez face-planted into the rear end of his offensive lineman Brandon Moore. The impact caused the quarterback to fumble and the ball was recovered by Patriots safety Steve Gregory and returned for a touchdown.

It was dubbed the “Butt Fumble” and the NFL on YouTube called it “easily one of the worst plays in QB Mark Sanchez’s career and in the history of the NFL.” 

 “Masked Singer” viewers proved he’ll never live it down:
