?? Sunday Special- Not a good idea

In the world cup final on july 9, the French Soccer legend Zinedine Zidane got himself kicked out of the game. The french lost, and Zidane's career ended on a very sour note.
Time for a quiz on bad career moves!

1. When asked about it, a sitting President, speaking ill of the dead, called it a "stupid sacrifice of valuable Troops and animals, brought on by [name] himself, that was entirely unnecessary!"
What was this very famous blunder, and who was the deceased blunderer?
2. He told a Congressional hearing he didn't; tests proved he did. Uh-oh! Suspension, and bye-bye to career. Who was this could-a been hall of famer?
3. Why is Hwang Woo-Suk min this quiz?
4. In 1987, it happened on an appropriately named ship, the "Monkey Business" and, arguably it ruined a career. What happened, and who's career?
5. Born Dimetrios Georgos Synodinos in Steubenville, Ohio, he had a few drinks one Martin Luther King Day and said a few things that got him fired. Who was he? What did he say?
6. In 2005, Harry Stonecipher dated an employee and was forced to resign his CEO position. He was CEO of what big Chicago-based company?
7. In 1978, he directed a movie that won best picture and best director Oscars. Two years later, he made a picture that nearly beggared his studio and wrecked his career. Name the director, the great movie, and the bankrupter.
8. If you're famous, don't hold your baby off a balcony where the whole world can see. Whose career suffered when he did?
9. Her name is now Mary Fualaau. It'll be hard for her to ever return to her teaching career. How come?
10. He went to a movie in Sarasota, Florida. Not usually a career-buster, but it was for this entertainer. What was the name of this character, and what was the name of HIS character?
1. The battle of the little big horn- George Armstrong Custer
2. Raphael Palmeiro
3. He was the scientist who faked stem-cell research in 2005 and destroyed his reputation, and that of his vaunted South Korean Stem-Cell lab.
4. A picture of Donna Rice was taken as she sat on the lap of Gary Hart, a declared candidate for president. When the pic was published, within days Hart was out of the race.
5. Jimmy "the Greek" Snyderwas videotaped saying that blacks were superior at sports because of Slave-breeding techniques on southern plantations.
6. Boeing
7. Michael Cimino directed "The Deer Hunter" in 1978 and "Heaven's Gate" two years later.
8. In 2002, Michael Jackson did this with his son, Prince Michael II.
