  1. well.............ain't THAT slicker than snot on a door knob?!?
  2. No SH*#? Maybe if someone had eluded to that, instead of stating "the elements" (referring to outdoors), that might have been a valid point. My point was directed (and should have clearly pointed out the references for those who missed it) to sanitizing and disinfecting everything.
  3. If "normal is gone", then accept your demise and begin planning for the end. Exposure to the elements is what strengthens and maintains your immune system. I will leave that as it is, and not impose my political views of "trail socialism" on anyone here. Have a wonderful day............for now
  4. Sorry folks, If you have to work harder to GET your equipment from a vendor, than they do at processing and shipping................. that's not my kind of vendor. Now if dealing with @JimKirk's team was as difficult as dealing with the aforementioned vendor, he & his group probably wouldn't be as successful as they are. **I am not a paid spokesman. These opinions are mine and not pre-recorded.
  5. a face covering mask (N95, etc) does not do it's job if not worn properly. Therefore, wearing it on the outside of the mask is useless.
  6. Given my current physical limitations (still have swelling after knee replacement), I have relegated this season to volunteering to work with 5 new JR umpires and 1 first year adult umpire. That said, my theory started years ago that for the first year, they just work the plate so their focus is contained. I (and other adult umpires) work the bases and cover everything not at HP. In reference to the above, anytime that I DO NOT call time, that's one less (possibly missed) chance for the new guy to NOT put the ball into play.
  7. @mac266, just had a game Saturday night. Little fellas. R1 steals and slides into 2B. I hear 1B coach yelling.....call time JImmy!. Jimmy asked for time. I asked Jimmy if he was hurt. When her replied no, then I told him "no".
  8. if @beerguy55 is involved, he better be bringing that Canadian Molson.
  9. I agree 100% wait, I'm not sure............
  10. Given that if she were still alive today, she would be 87. BUT I'M NOT JUDGING YOU @The Man in Blue
  11. "Hernández’s lawyer, Kevin Murphy, claims that the allegation is retaliation by MLB". I wonder if his lawyer has a brother named Kent, that coaches.
  12. and I have found it a good practice to toss the flag towards the base left early. Removes any doubt when continuing action (that requires attention) happens. The coach sees the flag closer to the base, it reinforces that you were watching.
