I really enjoyed coaching soccer with my son and daughter, but did not grow playing in any official capacity. One time as a coach the referee never showed up, so the other coach asked if I would ref because I knew the rules better than anyone present. (I had coached several years by then.) It was not a game of major importance and the parents weren’t on me because they’d rather have a game than no game and I was the best ref they would get that night. It was, fortunately, uneventful. Quite unlike that Little League fiasco.
