The firing of the cannon is part of the celebration when the Texas A&M Aggies score, but if you're a referee not aware of this celebration, it can be frightening.

This poor official walked near the cannon as it went off last weekend and I don't know how this man didn't have a heart attack. You can see that he nearly falls over, but braces himself.

I bet the next time this ref is in College Station he is aware of this tradition. No word if the official had to change underwear after this, but there is a good chance he did.

Poor fella.
