Per Bucknor's Wikipedia bio, he's been voted worst umpire in MLB in three player surveys - two by Sports Illustrated, one by ESPN: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._B._Bucknor.

He's been awful for years and years.  He's bad enough that I would avoid going to a game if I knew he was behind home plate.

Even in this clip, he seems to be smiling/grinning at an odd time.    It's like his emotions/responses don't fit the situation.    Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeriste, I need another Caps' game.     :)

I think he was embarassed. It wasn't a jovial face, it was a "holy crap, I can't believe I just did that" face.

I think he was deflecting his shame at sucking.

I just realized this game had an alternate ending. I turned it off after Kelly struck him out the first time.  :shock:

Bucknor was just making crap up all game long.

Maybe he was just unhappy being in Atlanta?

Had his pre-game meal at the Waffle House...

Bucky is the guy who puts "expert" in Microsoft office products as a whole on his resume, bc he used word to draw up his resume once. Complete donkey back there. It will be interesting to see what happens to him.
