Dick Bavetta Is The Real Life Grinch

  • Joe Levine

New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung went to yesterday’s Boston Celtics-Philadelphia 76ers game with his son, Taj. What they wanted was to do was catch a basketball game. What they did was encounter the real-life Grinch, apparently in the form of referee Dick Bavetta.

There really are no words that do this photo proper justice:

Luckily, it looks like they caught this Grinch post-heart enlargement, as Bavetta appears to be giving a friendly high-five to the youngster and not trying to steal his Christmas spirit.
