I Was Watching the Referee
One time when Michigan State was playing UCLA in football, the score was tied at 14 with only seconds to play. Duffy Daugherty, Michigan States coach, sent in placekicker Dave Kaiser who booted a field goal that won the game.
When the kicker returned to the bench, Daugherty said, “nice going, but you didnt watch the ball after you kicked it.”
“Thats right, Coach,” Kaiser replied. “I was watching the referee instead to see how hed signal it. I forgot my contact lenses, and I couldnt see the goal posts.”
