Retweet of the Day - September 24, 2012

The Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots treated America to a classic of a Sunday Night Football game. Unfortunately, the game, like too many NFL games in 2012, was marred by questionable and/or controversial calls by the replacement game officials. Even worse, this was particularly the case at the very end of the game when the Ravens kicked the game winning field goal, but the ball was kicked higher than the uprights and was very close to one of the uprights at the time the ball cleared the crossbar.

Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick, being his customarily ornery self, harassed the officials from the opening whistle to the final gun. His actions at the final gun, grabbing an official in response to the game winning field goal, will probably earn him a nice fine from the NFL (if not a one game suspension). Regardless, The Hoodie will not be vilified by his peers, not even Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, for tossing gasoline on the fire that is the incompetence of the replacement NFL officials.

During NBC's telecast, the video suddenly cut to the blimp shot. Al Michaels said that there was a streaker on the field. It has been the policy of television networks to not give these these knuckleheads their 15 minutes of fame by focusing the cameras on them. That brings us to today's retweet, by The Fake ESPN ‏(@TheFakeESPN):

"Batman streaking on Ravens field was probably the only good call of the night:"

Streaking on national television: ALWAYS a good call!
