comment made by my son/wife

Recommended Posts

So I ordered some pants, hats and accesories from Honigs and GDS and they arrived yesterday. As I brought them in and opened them up to look at my goodies, my son says "Dad, how much umpire stuff do you need?" and my wife immediatly says, "your Dad needs to umpire to support his habit."

I told them when there is an Umpire Anonymous meeting, I will start going.

Any funny comments from your families?

We could use a chat room capability on the site if it is at all possible.

Then we really could have Umpire Anonymous meetings online....lol

My wife is convinced that the only reason I umpire is to satisfy my gear addiction. Now that I have two complete sets of top quality plate gear (Wilson Platinum and Douglas/Honigs, including 3 masks), 2-3 shirts of each color, heather and charcoal pants, plate & base shoes, and gear bags where do I go? I surely do not want to disappoint SWMBO. Maybe a plate coat?

On the 40 minute ride home from the games today, I am convinced I have a gear addiction...I feel the need to get the white and red shirt just to have them.

I also need a new mask... :ranton: :BD:

When the new Davis or Honigs catalogs shows up at our house, we refer to them as "ump-porn" . "Honey, you got new ump-porn" in the mail today." "Where is it!?!" And its off to the "reading room" for long periods of time.

I have a buddy that works at a travel ball complex all summer. He keeps two complete sets of gear there to switch back and forth. Then he assigns for a local league so he keeps a third set of gear there. Now both his sons have started working so they each got a set to use. I don't even want to say how many uniforms and hats he owns.

My wife of 10 yrs. made the comment "I can't believe what a girl you have turned into here at home trying on umpire shirts, gear, wearing hats, looking in the mirror, etc." She added " If the managersplayers that you work withfor knew what you did here at home they would eat you up!"

It's our dirty little secret dear!!!!!

I too am an addict....

I did have a chat room at first, it was just never used. If it is something people are interested in I'll put it on the wish list for the next overhaul which I'm planning out now for the end of this year early next year. Hold on to your masks, it going to be a major change....

Have you decided on which forum software you're going to use yet?

It's a secret..... but not this one...

But... but... I like this forum software. The only other thing I really like is phpBB, but this one works well.
