The 'Buff Ref' goes viral: 'When everyday is arm day'

A referee at the national championship game between Alabama and Clemson stole the show with his arm muscles.

The Twittersphere went crazy when this ref made his first call during the National Championship Game between Alabama and Clemson.

It was not because of the call he made, but his arms caught the attention of sports viewers everywhere.


Mike Defee, 54, is a Big 12 referee and once he made his first call during the game, nobody could ignore his obvious beefiness. 

Hey, at least he keeps himself in shape. He kind of has to in order to run with those young, college athletes.
