German referee attempts to drink water on field, ends up with very wet face

Dr. Felix Brych is smarter than the average bear — the German referee is a qualified lawyer, with a doctorate in sports law. The 37-year-old has been officiating in the Bundesliga for eight years, and has also refereed in Euro 2008 qualifiers, the UEFA Cup, the Champions League, the South Korean K-League and the London 2012 Games.

While officiating Sunday's game between Hannover and Schalke, however, Dr Brych learned a valuable lesson: No matter how much education and experience you posses, you will always look silly when you try to drink water and most of it ends up exploding on your face.
