A few years ago, in a spring/summer rec roller league . . .

It's the playoffs - first game, first period. My team is myself, my little brother, and friends of mine from the same town. We all went to high school together - we even have a county sheriff's deputy and our high school chemistry teacher on the team. Good crew.

That being said, the score's 0-0. A shot is taken on our goalie, and he traps it underneath him. The whistle blows. Our goalie stands up, and the ball rolls from underneath his pad behind him and into the goal.

There were 2 refs - one at the blue line, and one on the goalie's left half-board. The one on the half board points to center ice and calls it a goal.

Yeah, I went bat-**** crazy on the guy.

At this point, the ref turns away from me, so I start following him.

It turned into a rather heated conversation, in which I threw several expetives, and was eventually kicked out of the game.

The goal stood, and we ended up losing, 4-3.
