Perhaps Jerry Meals just wanted to go home.

After 19 epic innings, MLB umpire Jerry Meals called Atlanta Braves infielder Julio Lugo safe at home, ending a 6 hour and 39 minute marathon game and infuriating the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.

In case you missed it, here's video of the controversial play at the plate.

Safe? Out? Too close to call? Let me see that again?

While some say the jury is still out on the call, the folks on Twitter feel that if Meals can call that slide safe, he might as well give the green light to a whole slew of inadvisable activities.

Take a look at this hilarious slideshow and feel free to vote on how safe these tweets really are.
