mercer I thought of that post when I was throwing this thread up.
nice work. Can your "inside info" tell me who's going to win on Sunday?
Anyway, here's another story about Super Bowl referees
that I found. It talks about some of the older refs I remember doing games.
I think the best quote is Bob McElwee's:
Retired official Bob McElwee, the head referee for three Super Bowls, recalled being on the road in Maryland when he got the news that he got his first assignment.
"I must have jumped out of the phone booth," McElwee said this week while on vacation in Hawaii. "My dad was sitting in the car looking at me, he saw me holding my fist in the air."
Imaging that old guy in a phone booth holding up his fist cracks me up!
