Ray Finkle and Kyle Brotzman:
How are they famous? Or should I say INFAMOUS…

Ray Finkle, Kicker Miami Dolphins :
(Fictional character from Ace Ventura, Pet Detective)
The main suspect in the kidnapping of famous QB Dan Marino.  Missed the potential game-winning field goal kick at the end of the Super Bowl XVII, causing the Dolphins to lose to the San Francisco 49ers.

Kyle Brotzman, Kicker Boise State:
Brotzman missed two late-game field goals in the November 26, 2010 game versus the Nevada Wolf Pack. The first one, a 26-yarder at the end of regulation, would have sealed a victory for the Broncos as time ran out. The second failed attempt would have put the Broncos ahead in overtime, and was a 29-yard try. Nevada went on to win the game 34-31, dealing Boise State its first defeat of the 2010 season.
