As a New York Giants football fan, last Sunday night was rough for me. One of the most difficult parts of that frustrating and tough loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, was two terrible calls by the officials. On Thursday, the NFL told the team that they did make mistakes in important calls in the game. This only adds to the frustration of a very imperfect game.
Part of baseball is the margin of error brought on by the human error of the human officials. Friday night’s Twins at Yankees ALDS playoff game was dominated by calls so bad that it was only fair to assume the umpires were on a kamikaze mission to kill the game and their careers in the process.
