Florida Panthers goalie, Tomas Vokoun, after his teammate Keith Ballard gave his face a slap shot.

With teammates like these, who needs opponents? Last night, when Florida Panthers defenseman Keith Ballard failed to get back on defense, then failed to recover the rebound of a breakaway shot blocked by his goalie Tomas Vokoun, allowing the Atlanta Thrashers to score, he swung his stick at the goal post in frustration, only Vokoun's pesky head mistook it for a puck and deflected it. As if surrendering a lead didn't hurt enough, the dazed keeper suffered a lacerated ear and had to be carted off the ice. Way to pick up your teammate, puck-nuts! Maybe next time try a pat on the back.

STEVE ATWATER AND RANDY HILLIARD, DENVER BRONCOS
DATE: January, 25 1998
FRIENDLY FIRE: Steve Atwater hadn't been in a Super Bowl since his rookie year back in '89, so you know he was going hard nearly a decade later in this Super Bowl XXXII play. Too bad those nine years of pent up frustration were released on his teammate Randy Hilliard. Ouch.

MIKE CAMERON AND CARLOS BELTRAN, NEW YORK METS
DATE: August 12, 2005
FRIENDLY FIRE: The Mets have had some painful moments in recent history, like being the only team in MLB history to give up a seven-game division lead with only 17 games left to play, or ending a game on an unassisted triple play. Still, this literally bone-crushing play by Beltran and Cameron has to be the most excrutiating by far. Fix your face for real, homie.

BRIAN VICKERS AND JIMMIE JOHNSON, HENDRICK MOTORSPORTS.
DATE: October 8, 2006
FRIENDLY FIRE: The time to put ego-driven teammate rivalry into high gear is not when you're going 150 mph-plus around a track surrounded by concrete (7:24 in the video). Someone should have mentioned this to Vickers before he took out fellow Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson to win his only race of the season.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JESSICA DUBE AND BRYCE DAVIDSON
DATE: February 8, 2007
FRIENDLY FIRE: This skate to the face at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships required 20-year-old Dube to receive 80 stitches and both skaters had to be treated for post-traumatic stress disorder. Only a couple years later, Davidson dropped Dube from nine feet in the air. In related news, Chris Brown just bought a pair of figure skates.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MIKE GRIER AND TOMAS PLIHAL, SAN JOSE SHARKS
DATE: October 26, 2007
FRIENDLY FIRE: Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wins is already known for making goalies look like fools, but in this clip he makes Grier and Plihal look like they belong in the junior leagues. Not to mention Plihal splitting dinging one off Grier's post. Pause.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MARIO GOMEZ AND MARTIN LANIG, VFB STUTTGART
DATE: January 27, 2009
FRIENDLY FIRE: Soccer is known for all kinds of ridiculous, borderline dangerous goal celebrations. You can argue that piling on top of a player or doing some back-flips is acceptable, but slapping another player's balls is never OK. No matter what feat was achieved. It's right there in the rules—no handballs!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANDREW BYNUM AND KOBE BRYANT, LOS ANGELES LAKERS
DATE: January 31, 2009
FRIENDLY FIRE: Kobe doesn't like big men (pause). First, he feuded with Shaq and got him traded to Miami, then he talked shit about young Bynum in a fan video and took the center out by fading away perfectly onto his knee. We can only guess when Kobe will lose it entirely and open-hand slap the hobo scruff off Pau Gasol's face.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAMERON CIRALDO AND MARK TAUFUA, NEW CASTLE KINGS
DATE: March 23, 2009
FRIENDLY FIRE: Rugby is recognized as the second-most hardcore official sport on earth, but the way Ciraldo's ankle got realigned under teammate Taufua, we might have gotten the rankings twisted.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AMR ZAKI AND MOHAMED ABOUTRIKA, EGYPT
DATE: May 31, 2009
FRIENDLY FIRE: Another reckless soccer celebration leads to injury. Zaki needed six stitches after he and Aboutrika mistook each other's dome for the perfectly crossed ball to head. Gooooooooooal? No, faaaaaaaaaail!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JUNIOR HEMINGWAY AND DONOVAN WARREN
DATE: October 24, 2009
FRIENDLY FIRE: In football 101, helmets and knees x collision = career ending injuries. So on this punt return, when Michigan corner back Warren Donovan somehow ended up flying into fellow teammate Junior Hemingway's knee, Wolverine fans held their breaths. Luckily Hemingway was OK. That 1-7 record the Wolverines have in conference play this year—not so much.
