  1. Loudest strike call I ever heard. Loved this guy. Rest in peace.

    Hold off buying that Under Armour stock...

    Wow. As Sheriff Buford T. Justice said, "Hold up on that car wash, gentlemen." I wonder if the swoosh would have any interest in producing some umpire gear?

    Actually, could use a drawing.

    I was kicking around the idea of doing the second one.

    Looks like I have the right company, right padding, wrong style of shoulder pads to make this work. Unless I want a big gap right over my heart. Too bad.

    Football coach here as well. The padding on the chest is definitely re-purposed from the chest-to-back portion of their shoulder padding, explaining the "button down" look. Good idea, though, could probably be taken on by some of the enterprising souls in this forum. I have a pair of Power shoulder pads kicking around here, maybe I'll give it a go using that pic for inspiration. I got the same sentiments from my Riddell rep a few years ago. But.... With all the talk of CTE and parents not letting their young kids play football as much these days, maybe they'll be willing to re-visit their feelings on baseball if it means making up some of the lost sales. Just a thought.

    New masks for old MLB umpires

    BT, I have the game on right now. Looks to me like a regular cap for Hunter. On a side note, I don't know if anyone has commented on this here before or not, but Hunter's blacked out "W" on his CP is covered over with his dad's "HW" memorial patch. Pretty cool.

    New masks for old MLB umpires

    Only a guess, but guessing they didn't have any MLB decals of the right size handy so they cut one off a soft hat and attached it.

    Nike Lunar Clipper Turf on Sale

    I've used them for football, on turf. They were comfortable enough, but not as comfortable as my Under Armour turfs.

    Adidas Base Shoes

    Same here.
  12. Seems like in this day and age of replay, that's all they have left to argue.

    Football reconditioners or repair places?

    Would it be possible/practical to cut ventilation holes in the sheet prior to applying? Might cost some in the adhesion department, but also might serve to reduce the vapor barrier effect?
