Shannon Eastin will be first female official in an NFL game

This final note on the way out, just ’cause I think it’s kinda cool.
Remember the name Shannon Eastin. She’ll be on the field Thursday night when the Green Bay Packers play the San Diego Chargers. The NFL’s lockout of the official’s union means the league is using replacement referees, for its preseason games at least.
Eastin will be the first female official in an NFL game. And if you tune in to watch, hopefully what you see is nothing. Just people doin’ their jobs.
