'01 Worst Sports Moments
Little League Cheating - During the 2001 Little League World Series, 14 year-old pitcher, Danny Almonte, posed as a 12 year-old so he could play. Danny struck out nearly every hitter he faced, before Little League officials caught on and kicked Danny and his team from Brooklyn out of the tournament. It turns out that Danny's birth certificate may have been forged by his parents. Another example of whacko parents ruining kid's sports.
The Penis Bite - Sevilla soccer player, Francisco Gallardo, bit his teammate on the willy to congratulate him on scoring a big goal. Let's just stick to high fives and touchdown dances. Leave the penis bites at home.
Cleveland Browns Fans - Fans of the Cleveland Browns littered the field with beer bottles and garbage after the ref blew a call during the Browns' game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The refs were forced to leave the field and the game was delayed by nearly an hour.
Fight Night - On December 8th, The Calgary Flames and the Anaheim Mighty Ducks had one of the biggest brawls the NHL has seen in years. During the game, there were 10 fights, eight of which happened in a 9 second span. Refs called more than 300 minutes in penalties during the game. When the dust settled, each team had only five players left on the bench. Oh yeah, Anaheim won 4 - 0.
The XFL - The football league which featured touchdown dances, super hot cheerleaders and a guy named He Hate Me, folded after just one season. The new league was popular for the first week but after that, fans lost interest. The league had great rules, cool nicknames and a funky red and black football, but the game just wasn't any good.
