Referees In Their Glory

Jim JonContributor IOctober 22, 2008

The latest sports clip to become a monster YouTube sensation features referee Wilbur Hackett, Jr., throwing a forearm shiver at South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia. So we thought this would be a good time to look back at our top five must-see videos involving referees or umpires.

1.
 The best penalty call in NFL history: "Giving Him The Business."

2.
 Belarusian soccer referee Sergei Schmolik had one too many cocktails before going to work.

3.
 NBA referee Dick Bavetta competed against Charles Barkley in a foot race at the 2007 All-Star Weekend, which saw both guys fall down at one point. But at least things ended with a kiss on the lips.

4.
 One of the memorable stories from this Summer's Olympics was taekwondo competitor Angel Matos kicking the ref out of frustration.

5.
 Let's just say this: "Have another donut, you fat pig."
