During the last year of the Rooster in 2005 it was only Jamie Foxx standing out with his "Best actor" Oscar, but back in 1993 Alain Prost could score his 4th Formula 1 Championship while Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson did win his first Super Bowl.

Usually Goats are friendly and easy going folks, as long as they can live a creative life. Also Dallas Cowboys quarterback Drew Henson was described by his former Goat head coach Jim Tomsula as highly creative on the field.
