The Replacement Refs Got Immortalized by Saturday Night Live Last Night

Since the moments after Monday night's debacle in Seattle, we've been looking forward to the replacement refs -- those scab referees who so woefully stepped in for the unioned pros in the NFL's first few weeks -- to get the pop-culture treatment. I was thinking an ensemble screwball comedy next Fall. But first up was Saturday Night Live, which sneaked a sketch into its Thursday night primetime special last night.
