Jets Fan Purchases Game-worn 'Butt Fumble' Jersey, Hopes to Send It Into Space

Mark Sanchez buttfumble - all anglesWe haven’t heard much about the legendary ‘Butt Fumble’ since it was unjustly retireed from SportsCenter’s ‘Not Top 10’. Mark Sanchez’s game-worn jersey from that fateful incident apparently came up for auction recently, and got snatched up by Jets fan Jake Hendrickson for the relatively modest sum of $820 — shouldn’t our editor-in-chief have ponied up that tab?

Though Hendrickson got a bargain, it sounds like he was a pretty motivated buyer. “Every time someone would outbid me by $5 or $10 I was raising by a hundred bucks just to show I meant businesses,” Hendrickson said, via Yahoo’s Kristian Dyer.

Hendrickson says that he plans to frame the jersey on his wall, but wants to save up the money to send it into space because it “[doesn’t] belong on this planet anymore.”
