First things first. On Monday Night Football, the Detroit Lions lost a game in a way only the Detroit Lions could lose a game.
They were driving for the go-ahead touchdown. Just before receiver Calvin Johnson crossed the goal line for that score, Seattle safety Kam Chancellor knocked the ball from Johnson’s hands. Teammate K.J. Wright batted the ball out of the end zone.
Except, in this case, Wright’s move was illegal. A penalty should have been called, giving the Lions the ball at the Seattle 1.
Instead, Seattle got the ball at the 20, ran the clock out and once again became the beneficiary of an officiating blunder.
The officials totally blew it. Specifically, back judge Gregory Wilson.
So, of course, guess who decided to stick his head up and take advantage of the situation.
Yup, our old pal Lance Easley.
He of the worst officiating call in history infamy. The Fail Mary.
“He was a mentor of mine,” Easley said of Wilson. “I would email him plays and ask him if I was making the right calls. I’ve still got his email and was planning to let him know that I totally understand what he’s going through.”
Of course he was a mentor of yours.
Maybe that explains why you both suck.
That wasn’t really the interesting part of the story though. The interesting part is what this bag of shit is doing now.
If you guessed “still trying to cash in on fucking the Green Bay Packers,” you win!
Easley is taking acting classes in Los Angeles, for what reason we couldn’t begin to imagine. He is also working on a movie adaptation of his book “Making the Call” and trying to develop a reality show about officials.
All of that sounds enthralling. Entertainment gold, we’re sure.
Here’s an idea, Lance. Maybe go try to find something you’re actually good at and do that instead.
Like digging graves. You know, and feel free to bury yourself in one of them.
