Boys JV game of cross-town rivals, 4 minutes until tip-off. I am without a partner. AD is not to be found. The last I had heard, he was out of town for the AD conference (San Diego) last weekend and he was looking for a partner for this game at that time.

Good news: the scorer is a certified official.
Bad news: he had major knee surgery; doctors orders to not work any games til Feb.

Good news: Scorer has his $1600 brace and is willing to give it a go.
Bad news: He does not have his officiating gear.

Good news: both coaches do not have an issue with him doing game in street clothes (I usually carry a spare, but not this night.) We did scrounge a striped shirt, I gave him my 2nd whistle and a shoelace for a lanyard.

At the start of 4th quarter, the AD shows up in his "School spirit" clothes and claims that he came directly from a "doctor's appointment". HE also admits that HE was supposed to be the 2nd official(on an emergency basis) fpr this game.

Game went well, partner's knee held up nicely. "Visiting team" won by two.
"Stay in the game!"
