  1. Weight Loss Group

    I've enjoy and appreciate everyone's posts about losing weight. I have noticed that after you get 60 years of age, it becomes much harder to lose weight. After working 8-9 hours a day, I find it hard to get motivated to go to Planet Fitness, etc. Deer season just opened here, I may take it upon myself to walk much more rather than riding in on a four wheeler. Please keep the suggestions coming.
  2. Just Cancel the Game

    If game is cancelled on us with no notice, we get paid!
  3. Strike Call

    I do say "Strike" and "Ball", obviously at different volume levels. I do not give the number and I am a pointer.
  4. Kneeling for National Anthem

    Jonathan, This debate probably isn't for us. I only responded to it because if I'm at a game and the National Anthem is played and people are not respectful of the flag or the anthem, it pisses me off. Period.
  5. Burn out

    dl1340, Nothing wrong with your idea of stepping away for a season or two. Sometimes we all need to get away from baseball to refresh ourselves and remind us of why we umpire. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. But, you can never escape all of the bad baseball, bad coaches or bad parents. They/it will always be there. I like your idea of trying to work better baseball, that should be your goal..
  6. Kneeling for National Anthem

    Dang, I hope all of the conferences have the balls to do this exact same thing.
  7. Kneeling for National Anthem

    It somehow seems disingenuous when millionaire athletes, somewhat like millionaire Hollywood actors, protest something. I understand their protests. I do not understand how our flag, the symbol of our country, got lumped into what they're protesting. Maybe it's age, but I really don't get it.
  8. Kneeling for National Anthem

    Leave all the players, NFL, MLB, whatever, in the locker rooms until after the anthem is played. (I really don't believe what I just said. I would fire them if I had the power). No place anywhere for that kind of look at me, I'm so special because I'm protesting mentality, etc. Be proud of your country, work to fix what's broken or get the hell out.
  9. Champro Equipment Bag

    You kind of limited your potential customers, didn't you?
  10. When is it time to hang it up?

    When i can't do my job. Meaning, get my rotations, get into proper position, have a good/fair strike zone, etc. My only hope is I know when "THAT" time is. None of us ever want to be a burden to the game.

  13. Mask Porn?

    Your forehead pad is not attached correctly.
  14. Adidas Base Shoes

    3 stripes look gray, I wish they were white.
  15. Runner Interference?

    As described, interference.
