  1. if you don't want to black it all out, do you have to tape it off then? I noticed you taped off your white soles.
  2. No longer important anyhow, all $249B of the SBA assigned money in the CARES act has been applied for as of today.
  3. I may have to try it on this pair of Reebok's I scooped up off eBay last night. I may just black it all out.
  4. You can steal one of these from Ump-Attire right now for $64.99 (9 in stock as of right now). Oh, and did the others mention this is a true 13" length as well? https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Featured/Specials/A3217-CHA13_Wilson-MLB-Charcoal-Umpire-Chest-Protector
  5. You're good, man. By the way, the Buzz Lightyear reference is to the elected idiots in DC, not you.
  6. No, we didn't get anything for her. She's not 18 until September. They wrote it that if someone turns 17 the year you filed (2019 taxes) then you don't get anything for that individual, even though she is a full dependent that cannot claim herself. It makes sense to them in Washington DC, but no where else.
  7. Guys, unless you are already an SBA member with any bank, good luck filing a claim. I work for, and bank at, the largest bank in the US in terms of assets and I can't file a claim with them because I'm not an existing SBA account owner. I've tried several other national and local banks with the same story. They're helping their customers first, then maybe they'll get to my application. For me, it's almost not worth the hassle. I'm only doing it since my wife is a stay-at-home mother who babysits some on the side, so we've lost my 2nd income and hers too since parents are keeping their own kids during the shutdown. All told, I'm out maybe $4K so it won't break me, but it would be nice to get some help with this. On another note: Why don't 16-18 year olds get included with the stimulus? I got $500 for my 2 youngest children, but my HS senior doesn't get anything for herself and i don't get anything for her either. That's dumb, because she is now out-of-work (job closed) and has zero income and I'm now paying her insurance and gas, etc. Sometimes I wonder who's running this thing and what they're doing... I'm not being political, just wondering how this obvious oversight was missed. How many 16-18 HS kids need funds right now as most HS jobs are shut-down (except maybe some in food/grocery business).
  8. I have the high top and mine sit very high as well. I went down to a 14.5" F3 shin-guard to compensate for it.
  9. Anyone find a way to get these through? Most banks are requiring you to be an existing small business account or they won't even take your application.
  10. I don't disagree, but I'm very curious what "mostly normal" life is going to look like post-COVID-19. I think what we think of as normal is going to take a good while to return.
  11. Yes, sir - that’s accurate. It’s in the PDF he links too.

    For LL, I'd still use the raft. It's maximum protection and cooler on those hot days. We all know most catchers at that age can't catch anything - and several don't want to even be back there at all.
  13. I can vouch for strapworks as well. I've used them for other parts on several occasions.
  14. New Balance plate shoes, size 11D These come with new Honig's shoe bags as well.
  15. All Star Magnesium umpire mask frame. Pads and delta flex harness are navy. Used by catcher so has some wear on it, but still fully functional.... would be a great one to send off to Mask-It to have re-done in gunmetal or flat black!
  16. In more serious tones, try here: https://www.tombihn.com/products/parts?variant=16645153735
  17. If you can't find any, just send me the Power and I'll take that terrible thing off your hands.
  18. Riddell Power "L" Already at $500 + $12 shipping... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Riddell-Power-Umpire-Chest-Protector/362958136861?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  19. OHSAA hasn't made a call yet either, but they were originally back on 4/6 (games by 4/11). With the update from Trump last night, no way that happens now. I'd say HS is done for this year. OHSAA did go ahead and formally cancel winter sports last week. They originally intended to resume those as well (basketball, volleyball, swimming, etc.).
