Utah soccer referee in coma from player’s punch

Was sports ever fun?

I remember once when I had to explain to Little League parents that the umpire (me) was the good guy . . . the guy who sacrificed his time because he loved the game and he loved seeing children learn to play it right. The pay sucked, the mosquitoes sucked worse, it was hot and humid and I was out there umpiring. And, no matter if I called it a ball or a strike, safe or out, half the parents would boo.

Ultimately, it can lead to this. Awful.
