Just a couple of photos with some captions. Behind the scenes with the crew during pregame.

Some good behind-the-scenes pics.

I do think they need to change the caption on pic 8 of 10 - it's just totally wrong. Anyone else see why?

Maybe the media got yet another thing wrong, and this wasn't during a game, but beforehand?

Is that possible?

I'm sure most laypersons wouldn't think twice about that caption, but for some of us anal-retentive types it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Yep, it was obviously before the game. They weren't discussing a play; they were talking about that one lady in the second row...

Which reminds me - there's something I've always wanted to ask Juulie:

When you work with another female ref, do get together and discuss guys in the stands?

Ok, now back to your regularly-scheduled thread.

Answer #1: "No way. Nobody's eyes are that blue. She must be wearing tinted contacts."

Answer #2: "Oh, they're real. And they're spectacular!"

I'm not sure what you're missing about #10; we were talking about #8 (of 10).

The flag is that of Sweden. The woman's name is Carolina Kluft. She's wearing the flag because she just won the Olympic gold in Pentathalon.

Don't the Olympics start next week? Is she getting a "head" start?

Sorry.
