Video: Ref gets hit in face for glorious moment of schadenfreude

Referees get very little love, especially in NBA circles.

Why, just Thursday night, you could see their inconsistency on technical foul calls: Nate Robinson(notes) gets one for talking to his coach, but Paul Pierce(notes) couldn't get T'd for gesticulating wildly after a no-call. Policing games is a tough job, but their performance leaves something to be desired.

So watch the video above taken from a high school game and let those bad thoughts towards referees wash away. There's no better way to get rid of that anger than by watching a ball hit a ref in the face while he makes a foul call. Don't hold back on your laughter. It's healthy.

It also starts the weekend off right. Enjoy Friday night's slate of games. Tell your significant other how happy you are to be together. Enjoy the fall foliage. Remember that negative thoughts are fleeting, because people can get hit in the face in hilarious ways with no warning.

And if you have the time, maybe send this video to Bob Saget. It's a sure-fire candidate for the $10,000 prize.
