  1. Veterans Check In

    A Marine dies in combat and wakes up in hell. He's really depressed as he stands in the processing line. He thinks to himself I know I lead a wild life but, Hell, I'm a Marine. We're expected to live wild lives. I wasn't that bad. I never thought it would come to this. " Looking up he sees that it is his turn to be processed into hell. With fear and heavy heart, he walks up to the counselor. Counselor: What's the problem, you look depressed? Marine: Well, what do you think? I'm in hell. Counselor: Hell's not so bad, We actually have a lot of fun. Do you like to drink? Marine: Of course I do. I'm a Marine. Counselor: Well then, you are going to love Mondays, On Mondays we drink up a storm. You can have whiskey, rum, tequila, beer, whatever you want and as much you want. We party all night long. You'll love Mondays. Do you smoke? Marine: Yes, as a matter of fact I do. Counselor: You are going to love Tuesdays. Tuesday is smoke day. You get to smoke the finest cigars and best cigarettes available anywhere. And you smoke to your heart's desire without worrying about cancer because you are already dead! Is that great or what? You are going to love Tuesdays. Do you like to fight? Marine: Of course I do. I'm a Marine! Counselor: You are going to love Wednesdays. That's Fighting Day. We challenge each other to fights to see who's the toughest in Hell. You don't have to worry about getting hurt or killed, because you're already dead. You are going to love Wednesdays. Do you gamble? Marine: Show me a Marine who doesn't! Counselor: You are going to love Thursdays, Because we gamble all day and night. Black jack, craps, poker, slots, horse races, everything! you are going to love Thursdays. Are you gay? Marine: OF COURSE NOT! I’M A MARINE!! Counselor: Oh, you're going to hate Fridays. . . . Semper Fi :-)

  5. Such BS! My avatar says it all to Adrian Beltre . . . and MLB "powers to be" SJA

  15. NCAA Softball and Illegal Pitching

    Just like a bad Law, best way is to enforce it and make the Powers to Be responsible for the Rule or get rid of it. my .02 SJA :-)
  16. coach berating his own players

    As an Umpire, if I hear any abusive, berating, belittling, unsportsmanlike, verbal unbecoming conduct, or comments that would be considered socially unacceptable by a reasonable and prudent person, from any player, coach, or manager towards any person(s) involved in the on-going game, they MAY get a warning, otherwise, they’re gone! SJA

  18. Suicide Squeeze Scores Two

    This I agree. I was confused (?) with some of the previous posts. TKS, :-)
  19. Suicide Squeeze Scores Two

    This is just under Fed Rules?. If under OBR, wouldn't 5.08a (4.09) apply?
  20. Win by Forfeit? Does it mean a thing???

    I think that's the unfortunate reasoning. The "actions" have had to be "legislated" away. They weren't changed due to peoples' good conscience, moral, or ethic thought as to others. :-(
  21. Jackets on the Plate

    Rob's a good dude. Sure looks different after seeing him this winter with whiskers! HA! :-)
  22. Win by Forfeit? Does it mean a thing???

    In my opinion, people in today's world lack Honor. It is all about winning without regard how it is achieved. The flowers of yesterday are the seeds of today. Sad. “It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.” Mark Twain :-(

    Thanks guys, I'll look into it further. I do have a Firestick. :-)

    Yeah, NADA :-(
