Replacement Google mocks refs after Monday Night Football fiasco

Would you too like the NFL experience? And by that, we mean being frustrated at an incompetent supposed source of knowledge?

Well, we can't send a replacement ref to your house, but we can direct you to Replacement Google, a site created by Erik Johnson to mock the NFL and the refs following this week's Monday Night Football debacle. It operates under the premise that the NFL is now sponsoring Google.

Essentially, Replacement Google doesn't work. Well, it does, but it gives you the wrong answer (sound familiar?).

Type in "Golden Tate" and you could be directed to a page listing search results for turtles.

One nice touch would be if a search for "interception" led to pages about a touchdown, but nothing's perfect. Particularly Replacement Google's results. And that's the point.
