Good for this guy, be proud of what you are. He be he, and let it be.

3 minutes for high sticking ... mmmm

I thought it was generally assumed that male skaters without sticks were gay.

Why would being gay mean that a ref doesn't suck. All referees suck. Except when they give a really bad decision in your favor. Then they're awesome.

Trying to understand this one.

I'm guessing he didn't draw blood...

Was the extra minute cause he left a mark?

Why not link to the source of the story (Outsports) FAILMITTER, instead of cheesy USA Today?

/Friends with the two guys who run Outsports
//They've been running that website since 1999
///Unfortunately, one of them is a Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics fan

So instead of yelling "have another donut " you yell "eat another cruller !!" ??

I saw the pic and figured it was an NHL level ref, still pretty cool that it is college.

Yes, I know somebody out there is thinking "So what? STFU and call the game." I get that, and to an extent I agree with it. The thing is though that it costs us nothing with the exception of faux-outrage and somebody out there is helped by it so good on him.

When breeders start saying "So what? STFU and call/play/announce the game, we don't need to hear about your sexual preferences" about fellow breeders who have 17 pictures of their girlfriend on their desks at work or mention her every 30 seconds in conversation, I'll buy that.

I thought minors were 10-15?

He never calls a penalty for holding the stick and is ok with using a hand to score in the crease.

The top referee in international rugby is gay.  He's not only accepted by his peers, he is feared by the massive players.  Nigel Owens is known to have one of the sharpest wits on the planet.
