We're in the midst of a big time of the year for sports, and I am a serious sports fan. I've been known to wear the jerseys of favorite players, pump my fist in the air, and scream at the television. So, today I'm standing on my soapbox with my Yankees jersey over my Packers t-shirt and an orange Clemson hat.
Maybe you aren't a huge sports fan like me, but I'd bet you have overheard more than a few conversations about referees over the past few weeks. I'd also bet that there was a noticeable absence of kind words.
One of my biggest pet peeves in the world of sports is the blaming of referees for the outcomes of games. One blown call and suddenly nothing else either team has done matters to the outcome? Nevermind that your pitcher walked in two runs or your QB was sacked eight times. What a bunch of hooey!
So, quit blaming the refs, who are mere mortals after all, and start cheering on your team. Every team has a call go against them from time to time.
