At last, after 72 entries, we've completed our Better Know An Umpire series. We hope you've enjoyed learning more about the human elements in blue, the men who wander anonymously through the sport, even as they make the game all about them.

Note: You may want to wait a minute before scrolling all the way down. There are 36 GIFs on this page, and it'll take a moment for them all to load. Trust us, though. It'll be worth it.
