Man Down Alert!!!

Virginia Tech/Wisconsin Game

Bob Donato (sp?) goes down to the canvas in transition and gets up, wipes off and moves on. That mean Hokie student section laughed at him. Oh, I did a little too.

I've never taken a fall, and hope it never happens. I am knocking on hardwood right now. What is the funniest referee fall you have seen?

The only time I have personally fell was when I was doing a JV Football game. The play was a sweep play that was coming towards my sideline and as I started running up the sideline myself the person doing the sticks dropped them like they should have but towards the field instead of away from the field. I did a barrel roll over the sticks popped back up and then threw a 15 yard personal foul flag.

Exclamation

I was knocked over working a croquet match. An errant shot hit me right in the crumpets. OUCH!

Are You Sure It Was Errant And That He Wasn't Aiming At You ???

Were you the lead, or the trail?

Ugh.....

Had a partner with bad ankles lose it on a transition steal. I was at lead, he was trail. As I got to the baseline I glance up to see which side the ball is coming down on and there he is, sprawled out on the court like a turtle on his back. Poor felle. Happened about the 6:00 mark in the first in front of the student section and - gasp- his 13 year old daughter!!!

My partner took a dive over the HC kneeling down talking to a player on his bench. Funniest part was my partner ended up on his back and just flailed around for a few seconds like a turtle on his back. I didn't call the play dead quickly because I lost the whistle from my mouth while giggling at the sight.

This is OT (so what's new?) but there's a business near here with a signboard that posts funny sayings. This week it's "If a turtle is missing his shell, is he naked or homeless?" BTW - last week it was "Lenin's tomb is a communist plot."

Was the coach off the court? If so, did he get whacked?

The court's sideline space is pretty limited, but I think my P was looking back at full-court pressure and wandered too close to the bench. My P was so embarassed that I think he was taking full responsibility.
