AUSTIN (KXAN) - Wayne Elliott was the referee-in-charge for the fiasco on Monday Night Football -- the interception-turned-touchdown in the Seattle Seahawks versus the Green Bay Packers game.
But for the longtime high-school and small-college referee, all the jokes and boos and a few thousand voice mails and emails didn't ruin what he's calling "the time of his life."
When it comes to the call it was his job, along with a replay official in the booth, who was not a replacement, to make the final ruling.
Elliott does have some regrets about how it was handled in the moment. But he's not backing down from the call.
The NFL said it was correct and that's good for him.
Everything else, he's laughed off. But he did get a special call on Friday from none other than Packers' coach Mike McCarthy, who has a home on Lake Travis.
Elliott is most upset that he won't be in Detroit this week to work another game.
But Friday night, as he has all year, he'll officiate a high school game. He'll be on the sidelines for Lake Travis High School versus Austin High School.
