    Whether it's dramatic or laughable or stupidity or being honored by a club

    Here's 1 that seems to be greatly remembered.

    Later, during a stint with German club Hannover 96 came the most "Cletus" moment of all. Upset that he hadn't started a match against Schalke, Mathis came off the bench and scored, and then ran over to manager Ewald Lienen and pointed at an imaginary watch on his wrist, as if to say, "You should have put me in the match long ago."

    Most of us know Brad ********ing Friedel scored on a corner to tie up a match in stoppage time.

    Only us Rovers fans remember he gave up the game winner a minute later.

    Speaking of genitals, wasn't Beasley caught pissing on the bench during an international match? Kudos to anyone who can find the photo evidence!

    Just did a little search to refresh my memory. It was during the 2002 WC match against Mexico.

    Donovan missed a sidefootsitter ;) against Tottenham, single-handedly turning his loan with Everton in 2010 into a failure.

    I recall he also pissed some folks off with him posting an image of a pig's head (while at Stoke).

    Was it Beasley or Donovan? Or did Donovan have a separate pissing incident? I have been watching the US too long...

    I think they both did on different occasions. Feel like one of the incidents was during Olympic qualifying.

    The arm wrestling anecdote here is my favorite, although the writer was not an entirely reliable source:
