Angry NFL Official's Expletives Aired in Stadium

Unfortunately for the officials, it was open mic night at Heinz Field.

After the Steelers scored their first touchdown Saturday in a 23-7 exhibition victory over the Lions, referee Jeff Triplette's field microphone picked up expletives uttered by him or one of his crew members apparently aimed at the replay official.

Unhappy that a review of quarterback Dennis Dixon's 5-yard run was ordered during a heavy rainstorm, an official was clearly heard saying, "It's raining like this, I'll kick his ... " followed by several expletives.

The official then added, "He's trying to get to the Super Bowl
already."
