Untimely Fall Results In Goal Post To The Groin For Linesman (Video)

It may not be quite as embarrassing as going through puberty in the midst of explaining a call to the fans in attendance during an NHL game, but falling to the ice and sliding groin first into the goal post is pretty damn close.

I have always wondered if referees wear jock straps while officiating these games.  Judging by the fact that this linesman was able to bounce right back up to his feet without showing any visible signs of pain leads me to believe that the answer to that question is “yes.”
