Hey Ref!

I’m not a huge football fan.

Truth be told, I’m not a fan at all.

Okay, here is the bottom line. I hate football. Partly, it’s because I don’t understand it all that well and partly, it’s because it’s just so… well, like ‘kill the kid with the ball’.

But we’re watching the Redskins play the Steelers tonight. Max has a friend over who’s a huge fan and the game is on. It’s fine.

What struck me, though, is the referees. I wanted to post a photo but they’re all copyrighted and I don’t do that. So imagine a grown man in a black and white striped shirt doing cheerleader arm movements.

Hey team! To the right! To the left! Now both! Up high! Yay!

Maybe it’s just me. But it made me laugh.

As Andrew always says about me, I crack my self up.

  1. Wendy: I laughed out loud when I read this. Rich tries to explain (boring) football to me, and when I ask what I think is an intelligent question, he always says something like “that’s just the way it is.” You would have loved hearing me question the reason for “downs” then finding out that a field goal was NOT a down. I think ALL football players look like muscled cheerleaders. And patting each other on the butt? So macho, don’t you think?

  2. I love football! And I don’t mean soccer, although I’m English.

    The zebras annoy me. They’re always getting in the way. I know they’re officially ‘in play’, but there have been several games where they’ve cost my team points by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, so I confess what makes ME laugh about them is when they get run over! Ha!
