Eight hours ain't enough for a referee's clinic
By Tim Renneberg
January 2nd, 2013

All right, class. The lesson today is Relativity Theory. Pay attention, because I'm only going to say this once: e equals m-c squared. That's all you need to know. Any questions?

We wouldn't accept short cuts in physics class, so why accept them in a hockey referee's clinic. Tim Renneberg really, really wants to know.

Hey, You'are an Ump, Aren't You?

Blaine has not been "banished" from baseball, but he's not been "relegated" either. Actually, he's on "loan" to this site, which covers what our Editor-in-Chief calls "soccer on ice." To see what Monsieur Gallant is doing over here – and what he has in store for us – come inside.

[Hockey contributor] Tim Renneberg told us his friend Shane complained about how tough officiating baseball can be. Tim professed disbelief. While he didn't actually dismiss Shane as being a lunatic, he offered strong arguments as to why hockey is the hardest sport to officiate.

Having worked four sports, I have a different view. Come inside to see which I think is the toughest.

Recently I took my grandson to see a traveling troupe of WWE wrestlers. We were titillated by body slams, slashing feet, forearm shivers. The crowd oohed and ahed as the contestants, ever watchful, ever wary, moved gracefully around the ring. The striped-shirted referee remained vigilant, always ready to penalize excessive force or unsportsmanlike behavior.

Wait up! Now that I think on it, I remember: It wasnt wrestling. It was the Central Hockey League. Log in to see the results.

Last time, I wrote about working with Fred, the inexperienced linesman. This time, Fred is our ally.

But Ken doesn't want to be here, and we need to help him get through tonight's game.
