  1. The best way would to email a file. DVDs are dead, man. They're, like, so 2010.
  2. That's a great idea, if it's loose enough to flop out on the outside of the shoe. I tuck the Bauer into the top of my shoe, therefore the thin, relatively soft Kevlar pad tucks into my shoe pretty comfortably. This a fascinating subject. You have turned this into a lot of fun for both of us.
  3. If he's an umpire that can't come up with a decent pun that means he must be in a slumpire.
  4. Our partner that last game we worked together got his ear cut on one of those. Ears bleeeeeeeeeed!
  5. Untrusty Umpires Sent Via Telekinesis Hey, I once sent you an umpire association patch for your collection, and you didn't even thank me or acknowledge that you got it. Is it because I'm a liberal?
  6. Possibly, but as long as you are not mass producing it, I can't believe MLB would get too upset. You are enabling what, 20 people to see this program? No we are not.... This is just one friend loaning a DVD to another friend. I really don't know how this program is protected by copyright, but I suspect even making the DVD in the first place is infringement. The wording is usually something like "this program may not be reproduced without permission in any form." Again, it's not something I would be concerned with. It's not like loaning a book to a friend. If you photocopied
  7. Nothing we do while running and cutting and twirling ever puts the same level of stress on a pair of plate shoes that banging them against a wall will put on them. It is absurd to ruin a pair of shoes doing something that is unnecessary, and something that they are not designed to withstand. Jocko's remedy is the answer. I have those giant Ziplock bags in the FSB just for that purpose. When the mud dries, you can just brush it off. It is yet another reason that I alternate between two pairs of plate shoes. When one pair is caked with mud...
  8. You are a profoundly wise and caring man. You have said so very much in very few words. I commend you.
  9. I have several schools that I assign games for throughout the off-season. I always work a game or games at one of them and assign all the others. Today, it was Santa Monica High School. I did the varsity game and then came out to do the JV game that followed. I enter the field from the left field corner. There was an assemblage of players near the dugout, and as I walked closer, I noticed that they all were wearing the same No. 10 jersey, and that they were somewhat somber. I spoke to one of the players I knew best, and I asked him if indeed he lost a teammate. He looked at me, looked arou
  10. I got the Kevlar pads... And rather than have them sewn on, I was going to temporarily attach them in a couple of possible spots until I can have them permanently attached where they need t be. As I was toying with ways to attach them, including simply using the Velcro to attach them inside the pad, outside the pad, vertically, horizontally... I simply Velcroed them to my socks, tucked them into my shoes and voila! The shin guard tucks in behind the tongue of the shoe, and the ankle protector would be attached this way: I'll probably attach it anyway, but for now, I'm doing it insi
