I'm Old

11 posts in this topic

I'm not really that old (41)...but I sure do feel old this past week.  I did a D1 game last week between two mid-majors, and it was the first time I had a game where I had umpired both head coaches as college players. 

I don't know why I'm posting that tidbit, other than the fact that I just can't stop thinking about this.  I told SWMBO, and she said that means I should think about retiring and stay home with her 24/7.  LOL.

Whippersnapper (*snicker* - I'm only 4 years older)

I'm taking my youngest on a college visit tomorrow. One more year and I'll be looking at an empty nest.

From the retired guys I know, I predict that "stay home with her 24/7" would last about 2 weeks before she's begging you to go somewhere else.

I can relate.  Got word through my local LL this year, that a coach who brought all 3 of his boys through our program (a few:question1:) years ago, is back with his grandson in coach pitch.  My how the stories will fly in a couple of years.

I'm a bit older then your 41, still with a 4 handle, I can empathize, my daughter just passed her driving road test and it made me realize that I've had a DL for 30 years....

Wait until you've lived up another decade or two. I'm umpiring (and refereeing basketball) for the kids of guys I officiated for when they (the parents) were teenagers. However, I don't think I'll make it to the grandkids' games.

Get out that O2 tank you wheezer, geezer.

Time for you to go to the land of newly weds and nearly deads in good old St. Pete.

Here is your article.

Maybe you and SWMBO can team up with KenBAZ and his new? SWMBO and take turns visiting each other over a toddy and a vigorous game of shuffleboard.

Or maybe, SWMBO will just turn you in for a newer model. You better git to exercizin.

Last summer a kid I'd coached as a 10u came out as the HC for a college summer league team. That got me thinking for sure. But not about retiring, I was wondering how he got so much older when I hadn't aged at all.

Since you are one of those in the know.

Is this veteran at 1st base being brought in by the NCAA to help the young buck whipper snappers, like this umpire on the plate, with the high strike that is mentioned in another Topic post in this Collegiate category??????
