Referee not too busy to take a phone call…during a game

When is it bad for a ref not to miss a call?

When that call is on his cell phone, and he decides to answer it in the middle of a game.

That’s right, just when you thought you’d seen the worst sports referees have to offer, a youth basketball official decided to raise the bar for awfulness.

During a game between North Whidbey Middle School and Oak Harbor Middle School in Oak Harbor, Washington, one of the two referees decided to talk on his cell phone. During the game.

Yeesh.
