Hartlepool played Oxford United yesterday in England's League 2, which is not great. Midway through the second half, referee Patrick Miller collapsed, clutching his knee with what appeared to be a serious injury. Not great, either. What is great, though, is what happened next as Miller writhed on the ground in agony.

When he went down, 21-year-old Hartlepool defender Scott Harrison grabbed the ref's vanishing spray the ref uses to mark off distance during dead balls, and outline the fallen official's body with it. This is hilarious! Refs suck! Spur-of-the-moment jokes like these hint at quick thinking and a great sense of humor!


Hartlepool won; Scott Harrison seems chill.
