As everyone knows by this point, Kulpa royally screwed the Sox over on Friday night by preventing them from scoring the tying run due to two atrocious strike-2 and strike-3 calls after the count was just 3-1. He blamed the strike-2 pitch on Yankees' catcher Brian McCann and said the strike-3 pitch was right over the middle of the plate.

Anyone with any sort of vision coming from their eyes and a minuscule knowledge of a strike zone could make out that both pitches were balls.
At any rate, Red Sox Nation took to every platform imaginable to shame Kulpa for his inexcusable and ego-ridden decisions. An outpouring of a response would be an understatement.
One of those platforms was Kulpa's wiki page, and numerous things were added in to make-fun of him and get some sort of retribution.
All I know is that next time Kulpa umpires a game at Fenway Park, he is going to get booed out of his mind. If he thought getting verbally murdered by David Ortiz was bad, he should see and feel what it's like having 37,673 drunk Bostonians screaming bloody murder at him. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the MLB didn't allow Kulpa to umpire at Fenway for the rest of the year.
