What in the Sam Hill is going on in America?! First NASCAR lets a girl drive. THEN With Leather lets a girl write. And now the NCAA is letting a girl GASP! officiate a bowl game.
Sarah Thomas made history yesterday at the Pizza Bowl as the first female to officiate a NCAA bowl game.
“It was an honor,” Thomas said while running off the field with her colleagues after Marshall’s 21-17 victory at Ford Field.
Thomas’ position as line judge meant that she spent most of the game in front of the Thundering Herd’s bench, but the Marshall players didn’t pay much attention.
“I noticed her before the game, but that was it,” said Marshall running back Martin Ward, the game’s MVP. “Once the game started, she was just doing the job that the line judge does in every game we play. It didn’t matter that she was a woman at all.”–Foxsports.com
It was nice of Ward to point out that “she was just doing the job that the line judge does”, as if she was going to go out there to paint her nails and give herself a bikini wax. Just you wait. With all of this progressive thinking women might some day get to vote and wear pants!
