From headbutts to hot dogs, take a look back and check out the wackiest sports moments of 2006.

Wacky Sports Moments - What a Butthead

Zinedine Zidane retired from soccer with a butt, er, a bang. In the 2006 FIFA World Cup final match between Italy and France, Zidane headbutted Italian player Marco Materazzi in the chest after he apparently talked smack about Zidane's mother and sister. It's still unclear what Materazzi said, but what is crystal clear is that Zidane was red-carded, kicked out of the game and quite possibly sealed France's fate in the game. They lost to Italy 5-3 in a penalty shootout.

Wacky Sports Moments - Unlicensed to Drive

During a preseason game between the Tennessee Titans and the New Orleans Saints, the Titans' mascot, T-Rac, drove onto the field in a golf cart and knocked down the Saints' third-string quarterback, Adrian McPherson. Whether the Titans were trying to eliminate their Super Bowl competition, one quarterback at a time, or not, they didn't succeed - McPherson walked away with nothing more than a bruised leg. And when McPherson sued the Titans for $20 million, all T-Rac had to say was "I didn't do it."

Wacky Sports Moments - Yes I Did... No I Didn't

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens reportedly attempted suicide by taking an overdose of pain killers on September 27, 2006. Saying he was suffering from depression, Owens admitted that he had intended to harm himself, but his publicist blasted reports, saying he had suffered an allergic reaction to the meds. Later, Owens denied having made a suicide attempt and said he was happy to be here. Confused? Yeah, so are we.

Wacky Sports Moments - Not Like Mike

Now here's a wacky lawsuit of NBA-sized proportions. A man from Portland, Oregon named Allen Heckard sued Michael Jordan and Nike founder Phil Knight for $832 million. Why? It turns out people had mistaken Heckard for Air Jordan for the last 15 years and as a result, he suffered emotional pain and permanent injury. And here we thought everybody wanted to be like Mike.

Wacky Sports Moments - Kobayashi Is the Top Dog
Hot dogs may have been invented in America, but a Japanese guy named Takeru Kobayashi knows how to eat 'em. He set a world record by devouring 53 and 3/4 hot dogs in 12 minutes at the 2006 Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest. He beat his own record of 53 and 1/2 hot dogs, which he set at the same competition in 2004. Even more bizarre is how Kobayashi once ate 17.7 pounds of fried cow brains to win $25,000!
