WATCH: Referee loses toupee in Kentucky high school game

An official in a Kentucky high school basketball game had an embarrassing moment when he got caught in the path of a long pass.

The ball struck the official in the back of the head, which is embarrassing enough, but it was actually much, much worse than that.

Because the ball also knocked off his toupee.

My body doesn’t know if it should laugh or cringe when watching the video:

Poor guy. They should have toupee him double for working that game. But to his credit, he quickly rogained his composure and didn’t flip his wig. He swept it right under the rug. I would’ve bald my eyes out.

Ok I’m done.

      Come on. If you glue something upon your scalp….you are asking to be chastised. No other way around it. I commend your puns drew. Very funny

    The kid that lost his composure for a second but regained it quickly and tried to console ole buddy with a pat on the back is the real MVP. It would’ve been easy to join in on the ridicule there.

    That would be terrible. As someone who used to wear a toupee i know the feeling. Im glad i got rid of it and just went natural. Feel great, but wow sucks for him. I mean did anyone believe it was real?

      You’d be surprised. It’s all in how the piece is cut. The really good ones, you can’t tell. My brother has a salon and sells them . I guarantee he has clients that can walk right past you and you would never know

      Is Bill Self one of his clients? I guess a toupee is better than those gawd awful combovers that some guys try to pull off – like Ramsey (Bologna Head) or Gene Keady. Saw pictures where Keady finally saw the light and gave up on his, and he looks much better bald.

      Percentage chance P&C also wears a toupee? I’m going with 92%.

    As a follically challenged guy myself, I have never understood why a man would put such a thing on his head in the first place. I’m sure he wasn’t fooling anyone.

      Agreed 100%. I started losing my hair at age 18. I would take my football helmet off and the padding would be lined with my hair. At NO point did I ever think of wearing a pelt. I tried propecia. I tried Rogaine. I quickly learned that I would lose my hair no matter what. I buzz my hair and it looks just fine. I can’t imagine gluing something on my scalp. That’s just bananas

    Men who wear rugs. It fills a personal void. I had an uncle that wore one. Storied athlete. How in the hell can you not see that NO ONE cares about your balding but you….AND…..EVERY ONE thinks you look like a goober. EXCEPT YOU……bald one?

    This was at Hopkins Central high school in the Second Region, it brought the house down. It was a wonder they could finish the game.

    as a fellow bald man, I love it. Serves him right. Wear a fake wig and expose yourself to ridicule
