We're Number Three!

Dave Golokhov over at Askmen (via Sport World) has a list of the Top Ten Sports Flubs and the kicker placed number three!

The somewhat dubious honor went to Scott "Wide Right" Norwood of the Buffalo Bills.

In Super Bowl XXV, the first of four consecutive Super Bowl losses by the Bills, Norwood had a chance to win the game with a 47-yard field goal attempt.

In the pregame warm up, Norwood aimed for the right upright and the wind hooked the ball between the uprights. During his attempt with eight seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, he again aimed right; this time the ball remained straight and he missed.

Have to feel for Scott. 47 yards is not a gimme. At least he didn't end up number one on the list. That sorry spot goes to the unfairly singled-out Bill Buckner - come on people, it's time to let that one go.
