A George Washington Accounting professor went to the game this week between our Colonials and Dayton to be honored for his financial contributions to the athletic department. He ended up becoming a virtual campus icon — honored for his confrontation with a referee in defense of the Colonials in a video (below) that has gone viral.
During the game, Kasmir began yelling at a referee from the sideline. He explained later that “Basically, I told the ref he was the worst ref I’d ever seen and he wasn’t worth the $1,600 dollars they were paying him and that was it.”
The referee responded by tossing Kasmir out of the game. Kasmir at first refused to go, but finally relented while receiving the accolades of the fans.
GW won, 60-58.
I have always warned my friends and students about accounting professors. They are a wild and unruly crowd. You have to keep your door locked if you do not want to find one of them in your office tallying up your checkbook or expense account. Often you cannot even walk outside at night in fear of accounting professors going wilding around the campus. Sure they are the big men on campus, attracting crowds of fans and people swooning around them and begging for dates. But they are a dangerous cut of academician — a well known fact among professors. Say a word against double-entry bookkeeping or Luca Pacioli and they will tear apart the place.
