Don't drink and ref
There was an entry on the list this week that was just too good to be true.
They told the story of an official at a match in the Czech Republic domestic league. It seems this gentleman had a little too much of a good time at his birthday party, then turned up to officiate a match - I repeat, OFFICIATE A MATCH - three sheets to the wind.
If you're taking the time to read this, please follow this link to the rest of the story.
What isn't jaw-dropping in that story? The quote definitely is. The fact this ref was handing out red cards like martini napkins definitely is. The blood alcohol content - while certainly far from condonable - definitely is.
There are certain things you just cannot make up, and this is one of them.
