Re: Your call
The Dave Pallone call at 1st base that caused Pete to go berserk and shove him. Nick Esasky had a long stretch and Pallone ruled he came off of the bag. The bad part of the call was that he stood and thought about it and waited to make the call, allowing the go-ahead run to score. Pete came out to argue and everything broke lose. I was at that game and it was the craziest Reds game I have ever been at. Not only did the shove happen in that game but there was also a fight. Browning drilled Teufel in the back and and the benches cleared. IIRC, Tuefel homered off of Browning (Tuefel always seemed to own Browning) and it was obvious that Browning drilled him on purpose. I remember Strawberry bolting from the dugout and Lloyd McClendon coming from behind the plate in his catchers gear and giving Strawberry a forearm shiver.
Second craziest game I ever went to was the game where Ray Knight punched Eric Davis. A book could be written on that one game alone.
Worst call in other sports? Easy. I'm a Raiders fan so I could pick several but I will go with the absolute worst. Two words.. Tuck Rule. 'Nuff said.
