3-Year-Old Sports Fan Gives 'Dumb' Referee a Piece of Her Mind (VIDEO)

toddler callThere are two different ways you could see this video of a 3-year-old girl explaining a blown call during the Outback Bowl. Either we're witnessing a referee prodigy, or this call is so obviously bad, even a 3-year-old could spot it. You tell me! Because the only thing I know is that this 3-year-old definitely knows more about football than I do.

She's super cute, though. Watch as she uses a pencil to point out that the football is not touching the pole like the referee said it is. IT'S REALLY NOT! And the best part is how indignant she is. You have to see this.

Aww, will someone please give this little lady a spot on ESPN? It just goes to show you, kids pay close attention to everything! (Except to the words "stop that.") And wow, it totally blows little kids' minds when they discover a grownup is wrong. How could the referee say the ball touched the pole when it so clearly DID NOT? You know, I think I'm getting a little worked up over this, too. How could he make such a bad call?!?

Oh adorable, curly-haired future referee, you're in for a lifetime of indignation if you plan to keep watching sports. If we could only put a dollar into your college savings fund for every bad call ever made by a ref, we'd have enough to send you and your sister. 

And speaking of her sister -- I love that bit at the end where she's on the fancy old-fashioned phone. Am I hearing this right -- she's talking on the phone to the pole? That doesn't even make sense. But I love it!

Do your kids watch sports with you -- I mean really watch?

    I'm with the first commentor. I would watch football in a heart beat if there was a cute little kid referee at each game :)
