And it's goooooood! They're back
And here's what I have to say to the replacement referees (with warning that I have a tendency to root for the underdog)
Dear Replacement Refs,
First off, thank you. Without you, what would have happened to football for its first 3 weeks. Maybe we would have missed out. And so, thanks for stepping up.
Now, I forgive you for the weird, confused, and bad calls; if you forgive me for hating on you so bad. I know it's not your fault that you aren't experienced. You should see me trying to do things I'm not experienced at (like calling football or tailoring shirts). I may also need to thank you again, because without you, not sure what I would have talked about with the boys in my office, besides Fantasy Football, and the baby panda at DC Zoo (tear).
I'm glad to have our regular refs back, especially muscle man Ed Hochuli. I've missed him, especially. Although, even he makes bad calls sometimes I'm sure you're glad to not have to get yelled at anymore. Take some time off. Watch some football. Enjoy yourself.

At the end of the day, you have given us 3 weeks we will never forget.

And, of course, in case you missed them, here are some of my favorite responses to the replacement referee disasters
"we've all made bad calls"
"Call it maybe?"
