I’m sure everyone remembers the incident during the Green Bay Packers-Seattle Seahawks game where the replacement referees called a touchdown on a play that shouldn’t have been a touchdown. At a recent charity softball game, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate was photographed with the replacement referee Lance Easley that called the play a touchdown. Tate, as you may recall, was the player that caught the infamous touchdown that pretty much ended the referee lockout.

Many of the players there used this as a running joke throughout the event, which even Russell Wilson got in on.
Touchception ref with a questionable "safe" call on a ball at first. Russell Wilson argues, throws hat, throws base, all in jest.

It’s a lot easier to joke about the incident now since...
