Replacement Ref Lance Easley, a 1978 graduate of South Hills, helped save the NFL with Monday’s Night’s call, helping end the lockout

1978 South Hills grad Lance Easley (26) ruled the controversial Fail Mary a touchdown on Monday that allowed Seattle to beat Green Bay, 14-12. That ruling and the buzz it created helped end the referee lockout on Wednesday. That’s right, you can thank the SGV for bringing the refs back to work.

USA TODAY: Small wonder why NFL replacement official Lance Easley is considered public enemy No. 1 this week — and maybe for the entire season in Green Bay, Wis.
