If I could change one thing about Byrd Stadium related to my job – any one thing – it would be something oddly simple: Being able to hear referees’ penalty calls in the press box.

For the purposes of these charts, it’s especially annoying, since you can never tell you exactly did what. If it’s late in the game and stuck paying half-attention to what’s going on because of a looming deadline, it gets worse.

Anyway, all of that is to say I’d be more than willing to take some pointers from people who actually know who committed what infraction. I’m only certain of one of last week’s five miscues, which admittedly is a pretty poor showing.

On to the breakdown:
