Hey Packers fans, remember that game you lost at Seattle last year? You know, the one where the replacement official called a touchdown that should have never been? Seattle Screwjob, Fail Mary, etc.? Yes, yes, figured you would.

And we're pretty sure you realized at some point that had that game not been stolen from Green Bay, the Packers would have been 12-4 and been rested to host the 11-4-1 49ers in the playoffs. Who knows, maybe Colin Kaepernick wouldn't have been so fast in single-digit temperatures.

A quick refresher for anyone who might have forgotten: Last season, Seattle trailed Green Bay 12-7 on the last play of the game when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a pass into the end zone. Despite Seattle receiver Golden Tate clearly not having control of the ball as he went to the turf, replacement officials (the regular officials were on strike) ruled it a touchdown. It was one of the more infamous blown calls in sports history, and thankfully was the impetus for the NFL to settle with the regular officials.

Well Packers fans, you'll be thrilled to know that Lance Easley, the replacement ref who made a mockery of the sport by giving Tate that touchdown, is now enjoying his bit of celebrity around Seattle. He even took a smiling picture signaling touchdown with Tate at Seahawks cornerbackRichard Sherman's celebrity softball game, which he umpired.

Fun, right?

 

Lawyer Milloy took a picture and posted it to Instagram of Easley giving the TD signal with a huge smile on his face. BustedCoverage.com had many pictures from around the Internet of Easley mugging for pictures with Seahawks players and fans. We're pretty sure Easley wasn't invited to Donald Driver's annual softball game in Wisconsin this year, and won't be invited to have a bratwurst with anyone in the state anytime soon.

WOW! Even I hate that Ref for that bogus call. Guess somewhere in his frail mind, he thinks its good to have a legacy of one of the worst calls ever made by an official.....Even cost the other team a crucial W.

Ahhhh just another thing that a Bank of America executive screwed up......I am not going to hate on the guy though. He is promoting his new book and getting his name back out there anyway he can. Well played Easley, well played.

So what? The regular refs favor teams (Saints/Pittsburgh/NE) They both suck chunks
