"Refrigerator" Perry's Rushing TD in SB XX
For longtime Chicago Bears fans, few video highlights invoke more nostalgia than a clip showing William “The Refrigerator” Perry, the 335-pound defensive tackle, scoring a touchdown in Super Bowl XX. On January 26, 1986, the Bears led the Patriots in the third quarter, 37-3, and had the ball on the Patriots’ 1. It was first and goal, and Perry, a pot-bellied and gap-toothed 23-year-old rookie, lined up as a fullback. Quarterback Jim McMahon took the snap and handed the ball to Perry, who charged toward the goal line, barreled through a defender and rolled into the end zone. Then Perry wound up and spiked the ball on the Louisiana Superdome’s AstroTurf. The Bears won 46-10, and haven’t captured another Super Bowl since. In his decade-long career, Perry never scored another touchdown.
