The Lambeau Leap is arguably the greatest celebration in sports. For years after scoring a touchdown at the Frozen Tundra, Green Bay Packers players jump into the arms of their cheesehead fans.

It's especially a thrill for someone like Packers running back John Kuhn who so rarely gets into the end zone. Kuhn has just 12 TDs at Lambeau in his six seasons with the Packers.

So on Sunday when he had the opportunity to bounce into the stands to greet ecstatic fans after putting the Packers up 16-13 (pending the extra point) with about 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter of their NFC Wild Card game against the San Francisco 49ers, he surely wanted to take advantage. But the 250-pound fullback barely got his feet off the ground. 

And now Kuhn will forever be remembered for his "Lambeau Flop."

See the failed leap for yourself:
