I know what you are saying and respect it. I don't officiate for the cameras or an 'attaboy' from a fan/player/coach. As you stated, I officiate the game and only the game. I call what I see, not what should have happened. I used to make the expected call and didn't care who thought differently. Like the note from school, times have changed for many of us.

I wish you well through the next official, non-sectarian celebratory period we used to call Christmastime.
I care not for the new order, politically correct, sterile world we live in. So I wish you the same as I wish others (whether they like it or not):
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
When in doubt, bang 'em out!
