PUNCH DRUNK

Did you see the video of Jose Offerman punching an umpire in a Dominican league game?  An act for which he is now banned for life from the league?  I've watched the video a bunch of times.  I'm no Marv Albert, but it looks to me like Offferman never landed the punch.  In fact, he didn't come close - missed by six inches or so.  From point blank range.  The ump's head never twitched and a noticeably long moment after the swing he fell backward on his rear.  Watch it.  The whole thing almost looks staged, like a cheap WWE move.

Here is a freeze frame.  You can click the image for a larger view.
