There will always be one player who insists on wearing high socks. Feel free to penalize his team mercilessly.
The only thing worse than trying to find a job is trying to find a job during a recession. To that end, we present Wanted: A weekly look at the weirdest ways to pay the bills in Twenty-Ten.

The Job Flag football ref for Underdog Sports League.

The Responsibilities Wield the whistle for weekend warriors trying to prove they still have gas in the tank.

The Qualifications A general understanding of football is required. Past reffing experience is a plus. The ability to stand your ground when that former D-III quarterback says he'll kick your ass if you don't reverse that pass interference call isn't mandatory, but if you back down you're gonna look pretty bad.

The Pay $11-$13 per game.

What the Job Description Doesn't Say But Should Did you spend your adolescence getting shoved in lockers by a clan of merciless jocks? Then welcome to Paybackville, Population You.

You are a pinstriped angel of mercy who, based on pure whim, can determine the fate of games that only matter to a dozen ex-athletes and the girlfriends they guilt trip into tagging along. TAKE YOUR REWARD.
