  1. You don't get this level of access as a fan. THIS is why we umpire...we have the best seat in the house! Not for the praise...but to be a part of the game. The fans have no idea of the relationships we develop over the years with players and coaches. We might get upset from time to time, and we might make calls that cause them stress at times...but at the end of the day, people just don't understand how connected to the game we are. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Great transaction with @RERaunio...prompt payment and great communication.
  3. It isn't fun anymore. I dread the road time, I dread getting paired with certain partners, I dread chapter meetings and politics, the coaches, the fans, the players don't appreciate you, the pay stinks, its too hot, its too cold...the same ol' stuff! Also, I've become really involved in other things like church and I'm at a point in my life where the extra few dollars I make aren't essential. I've been away from my family long enough (3 sports for 15 years)...and my body isn't getting any younger. I gave up hoops a few years ago, but I'm going to keep doing football (it's only once a week and with a crew I love). Add it all up, and it is just time. I was fortunate enough to get to work the state finals this year. I figured it wasn't going to get much better than that for me...so I'm pulling a Manning and going out on top!
  4. Don't have a Golden Coral...but I do have this still for sale!
  5. Actually, I want an Apple Watch! Pics added to the OP. This CP is in great shape and will last someone an entire career while protecting them at any level of ball.
