(NEW YORK) – The NFL referee lockout has ended in the aftermath of a blown call on Monday Night Football, solving the world’s most trying problem.
(At least, I assume most trying considering the media attention given to the issue combined with the speed in which the problem was solved following the initial outcry.)
When the replacement refs erroneously called a Green Bay interception a Seattle touchdown, they began to show just how quickly Americans can come together to solve a serious problem. Responding to complaints from fans, players and presumably God Himself, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced the end of the referee lockout.
The real refs will return tonight to officiate the Cleveland Browns at the Baltimore Ravens. It’s the perfect warmup for the rusty refs as no amount of blown calls can possibly save the incompetently hapless Browns from themselves.
