Jim playfair Goes Hulk Hogan/Incredible Hulk

We all hate stupid refs, turns out so does Jim Playfair. Props to him for his wicked rendition of Hulk Hogan. Terrible, terrible call by the official. Too bad the Flames don’t have the same passion (I wonder if he replaced those $200 sticks?!) [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21nBVuCMPuQ]
