Mark Sanchez first made headlines for his rear end with his infamously embarrassing butt fumble just seven months ago. The much maligned New York Jets signal caller has once again made headlines as a result of butt related antics, this time for shaking what his mama gave him.
Apparently partying out west in the Los Angeles area during the off season, Mark Sanchez once again found a way to embarrass himself. Partying isn’t something that typically results in a celebrity making headlines, it is a pretty common thing for athletes to partake in. However when you shake your naked butt on camera, people are bound to take notice.
You can watch a video of Mark Sanchez shaking his butt in embarrassing fashion here. A word to the wise, it is an uncensored video and is probably not safe for work viewing.
Former New York Jets backup Quarterback Erik Ainge informed the world that Mark Sanchez is no stranger to exposing his butt, or other embarrassing antics. He stated that the Jets passer is mostly “stupid” in regards to his personal image in an interview with Kyrsten Dyer.
Describing Sanchez as a relatively naive person, Ainge furthered his description of Mark Sanchez embarrassing behavior.
“There were numerous times when things would happen, when things would go down, articles of clothing would be removed,” Ainge said. “Mark is goofy. He played truth or dare. He was kind of awkward around girls, so he needed other people around him to help him out. I was good at that — there were other guys who were good with that. So we’d help him out and talk him through his awkwardness.”
“He’s been a target in college and now he’s a target in the NFL,” Ainge said. “Now it’s become a thing to try and catch Mark doing something stupid. He’s never breaking the law. Look at Aaron Hernandez, Mark Sanchez is child’s play in the NFL, as far as off-the-field stuff. I’d know as good as anybody — what Mark does off the field is child’s play. He’s dumb about it. He’s stupid while being stupid. You have to be smart while being stupid, and he’s dumb while being dumb. Look at the butt video. He needs someone he trusts there when Mark wants to go streaking through his own condo.”
The New York Jets have not commented on the incident, nor has the National Football League, perhaps because it was just a minor hiccup. He has not harmed anyone by his actions, and really only embarrassed himself by exposing his butt. There was nothing illegal in the actions he displayed in the video, although they don’t help his case for being a role model for children watching the Jets and the rest of the NFL.
Although this may be a slightly more vulgar butt related embarrassment than the infamous butt fumble, Mark Sanchez is no stranger to making headlines because of a rump related incident. Attempting to scramble for yardage in a game last year, he made one of the most embarrassing fumbles in the history of the league.
By running into his own lineman’s rear end, Mark Sanchez embarrassed himself in a way he may not be able to repair no matter how much he improves the remainder of his career. This play dominated ESPN Sports Center’s ‘Not Top Ten’ segment for an incredible amount of time, long after the NFL season ended.
Despite his now numerous butt embarrassments, Mark Sanchez is currently the front runner over Geno Smith to once again be the Jets opening day starter. He has the support of the locker room as reported by Nick Mangold, who said “I think Mark is a fantastic quarterback for us, and I think he can do some good things. He showed some good flashes in the spring, getting new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg’s system down and commanding the offense way that he should be. We’ll see how training camp plays out, but either way, the competition will make him a better player.”
Whether or not Mark Sanchez can turn the corner and improve his highly criticized play the past two seasons will be a far more crucial issue for the New York Jets this season. Although this incident is another butt related embarrassment for Mark Sanchez, it really has no bearing on his ability to play football, and should have no impact on his ability to contend for a starting position this season.
