Adrian Awasom, New York Giants

Where: Super Bowl XLII, Glendale, Arizona (2008)
Incident: Being on injured reserve after breaking his neck during the regular season, the back-up defensive end went a little too hard partying and was arrested on suspicion of "extreme DUI," which means he was double the legal limit.
Result: Awasom was sent home and didn't get to witness one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history as the Giants prevailed over the previously undefeated Patriots 17-14. At least he didn't have to pay his own airfare to the game like former Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey.
