An inexplicably poor result for a simple task. Usually only the last name (Buckner) is used.

A scape-goat for the 1986 lost of the Boston Red Sox to the odviously superior New York Metropolitains. Mookie wilson (mets outfeilder)hit a soft easily catchable grounder down the 1st baseline. When to the unhappyness of many Bostonians he let the ball roll through his legs in a blunder that allowed the Mets win the 6th game of the 1986 world series. The Mets would later win the 7Th game and pull a major upset and become World Series Championship.
*my imitation of a boston fan during bill buckner's mistake* "hooooooooly shit what just happened?"
