    Fulmer calls out PU

    Try being here in Portland, where the common breakfast question is "HOW MUCH DID THAT DOUGHNUT COST?!?"
  3. I'll take "Things Daddy Coaches Say" for $400 Alex.

    'REAL' job

  5. I don't disagree and it probably the way the situation was filmed. But it seems like Meals wasn't anywhere near Hamari and Boone... and then he was. Not saying anything was wrong. Just an observation.

    FS- Black Nike Pads Brand New

    Not anymore. They are replacing it with a veggie burger (for those STRANGE veggie types... like my wife). And yes... EVERYONE loved the Costco Polish Sausage!
  7. Also, at least to me, it looked like the ejection from Meals came from out of nowhere. I could understand if it was Hamari with the ejection (as the calling umpire). But Meals seems to come from out of the blue to run Boone.

    Facemask Upgrade

    I would also say the Diamond iX3 would work as well. Just a matter of which one you get. Because if you order the one with the lesser pads, the should be upgraded.

    Has to be. The website has the word "NEWS" in it.

    But no Polish Hotdogs or Chocolate Ice Cream... the bastards!

    Dale Scott Interview

    Hoping to get Dale to come and talk to our little association next season since he is local. Said he would do it. Now just a matter of nailing it all down next spring.

    Which one?

    Man did i want that rig! I just couldn't swing it at the time for one reason or another. Maybe this one I can if you put it up.
  13. BT_Blue

    Which one?

    I remember that rig! That was the one you made to look like a Riddell!

    Which one?

    Figured so. I still like ththe vintage one better. But also want the vintage one more.

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    My guess is that they probably do and that you either misplaced them. Or didn't have then to start with for some reason.
  16. BT_Blue

    Which one?

    No. I originally posted (seriously) that I like the vintage one better. The second post was made, tongue firmly planted in my cheek, assuming you would be seeing the vintage one. And i was calling dibs if you did.

    Which one?

    Wait... rereading the original post... I like the one on the left/top. Also... DIBS on the bottom one! Lol

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    Ah... now that makes sense. The MaXV came with t hooks. So one can see the confusion.
  19. BT_Blue

    Which one?

    I second this. I'm a fan of the one on the right (bottom?)

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    I do not have it on my MaXV. And i can't recall if it had it in the first place. So 8 would say, if threaded correctly though the t-hook. You don't need it.

    Imitation is a form of flattery I guess...

    Our Man @Scott K did hint at something new in the pipeline regarding the Wilson chest protectors. I also happened to mention I would be less surprised if I woke up with my head sewn to the carpet than to see something innovative and new from Wilson. I have thread and needle readily available. So... your move Wilson!

    New Wilson harness is to the Force3 harness. As Ray's harness is to the All Star harness.
  23. I actually was expecting it to be Old Dominion. But that would be "the official carrier of MLB" so it would make sense since this is umpires only.
  24. This would probably be better under the "Ask" section further up. But here is fine as well. As for was it right to just continue on. The simple answer is, yes. The first situation with the fair/foul... hey, you screwed up it's a judgement call. Nothing you can do. Especially since, if you reverse the call to fair, what do you do with the runners? Better to keep it foul and continue. Your second situation was a mistake in understanding the rules of the game. This, if you realized it at the time, could AND SHOULD be corrected. Now what to do after the fact... If you are known and liked around the league, you can go to the coach next time you see him and say "hey, I screwed up. My bad." If you aren't. Or are brand new. Keep it to yourself and learn from your mistake so you never do it again.

    New masks for old MLB umpires

    Starting to notice guys moving away from the Big Yellow W masks to new ones. We know about Winters and Wegner going Force3 in the last year or two. And Hallion going Force3 at the end of the year. Also, famously, Hunter wearing the All Star Magnesium last year too. Now O'Nora is rocking the Force3, Everett (as we are all aware) getting that horrible hit with the All Star Mag, and today Jim Wolf had the All Star hollow steel in today's Indians-Mariners tilt. Would be interesting to see if anyone else has noticed anyone else going with a new rig this season?
