For 18 years I was a football official in U$C/UCLA country. Once the fork sign came into common use I started using that to signal third down. My way of injecting a little Sun Devil mischief into my day. Some of the other refs saw it and liked that it was more distinct that the "ok" sign and could more easily be seen across the field. Little did they know, and several of them copied it At one point, a big U$C fan asked why I signaled third down that way and I told him about its ASU roots. He was aghast that he'd been holding Forks Up for a couple years and didn't realize it!
Forks Up! Go Devils!!
