NFL referee Clete Blakeman is getting a shot at redeeming himself.

If you saw the Packers Cardinals game last weekend you might remember the coin flip at the start of overtime the coin flip where the coin didn’t actually flip.

After a do-over the game ended badly for the Packers.

The ref in question did all right, though. There’s word today he’s been chosen to referee Super Bowl 50.
