VIDEO: Ref Gets Hit In The Face With A Ball, Falls Onto Cheerleaders

A funny thing happened in the opening minute of Kentucky's game against Georgia. I'd tell you what happened, but, well... I think the headline says it all -- let's stop wasting time and roll the tape.

Getting hit the face with a ball sucks. Getting hit in the face with a ball on national television sucks even harder. But getting hit in the face with a ball and then landing in the laps of a bunch of Kentucky cheerleaders? I'd call that a wash.

For your Tweeting pleasure, here's a handy GIF:
