Lance Easley became a household name in a matter of seconds last September. For those who don’t remember, Easley was the NFL replacement referee who made one of the most controversial calls in sports history and gave the Seattle Seahawks a win over the Green Bay Packers on national television. Over the weekend, Easley got together with the team he helped reach the playoffs last season.
According to Pro Football Talk, Easley took part in Richard Sherman’s charity softball game on Sunday. He dressed in a football official’s uniform and worked the game as an umpire, enjoying a few laughs with the team and even making some questionable calls that brought Russell Wilson out of the dugout in protest. Fittingly enough, Golden Tate was named the game’s MVP.
Easley, who stood by his call last year as it pertained to the rule, held his ground once again on Sunday.
