  1. 3 weeks delivery makes you happy?

    @JSam21, don't feel alone. I called him out commending him for his plethora of knowledge and resources, and was all but chastised on here (by that person) for doing so. As far as I'm concerned at this point, he can stop expecting a Christmas card from me. (Yes, I had to re-write that last sentence several times .)
  3. well, as ornery as I have been since I woke up last Thursday morning, SWMBO is dead set on asking him to put back whatever he fixed.
  4. I'm back and my sarcasm has never been in better form!! Doc cut me open, drove his SUV inside, did a few laps, got out and did some work, only to get back into his SUV and spin the wheels on the way out. Well, that's what it felt like anyway. Doc was able to "put one disc back in place" and only needed to fuse two levels. I'm surprised (as is SWMBO (a nurse)) that as many people say how much pain they are in, I haven't had ANY pain since I woke up. Well, other than a sore throat from poking and prodding around in there. Who woulda thunk that they go in from the front, to work on your spine??? Anyway, blocked all of HS season, and will unblock to pick up turn backs/rain dates after I am cleared.
  5. I can see it now................whoever gets beaten by the team(s) that should be disqualified from the state tournament, will now file legal injunctions that THEY should be allowed in, instead of the team that should be disqualified............ I kind of feel sorry for you NJ guys if this team is allowed in the state tournament. Like the article said, "the officials are pressured to take charge of the game". If this appeal overrules the officials, I HOPE that your attrition rate isn't what I could foresee it being. I applaud NJSIAA for standing behind them.......................for now. Hey LawDog @lawump, how IS that separation of church and state thing coming along?...................
  6. Personally, I feel as though it's just a matter of (a certain degree) of respect that I was taught while growing up. Look a man in the eye. Let him know you are talking to HIM, or, listening to HIM. Kind of like teaching a millennial that a firm handshake says a great deal about a man.
  7. ......................speaking of @MadMax, I don't recall seeing many posts from him as of late. Is he on sabbatical? @KenBAZ, everything ok in the land of sun and fun?
  8. I don't even try and keep track any more. we have to work 10 or 12 varsity games, and then a "peer rating" (here it comes) groups the crews. 1-4 is Crew #1, 5-8 is crew #2, etc. (Do you see the good ol' boy network working here?)The top crew is usually the one that if moved into states, is the one to go. I've probably had more training and field time than most in my chapter, that based on training/experience should probably land me on crew 2 or 3. Never been higher than crew 4 and 2 or 3 district games. No biggie, not it in for the fame or accolades, so I just move on to the next season.......

    New Surgery

    Maybe she missed breakfast and was hungry............................HINTING to the boss to buy lunch
  10. So my response to UmpAttire on Twitter wasn't correct? and here I thought it was Liberating Unused Cash
  11. Thanks. Those look pretty sharp. Hasn't seen them before. Still don't know who/what LUC is.
  12. I do too. IT comes from what I was taught whilst a member of Uncle Sams Misguided Children. With the break of 5/8" from front to back, it laid nicer on the shoe without looking LIKE $#!T.
  13. hey Yank, look at it this way, the fewer players swinging a bat (at the same time), the less likely they are to cause an injury or harm another player. Honestly, I wouldn't want to give a banged up, bruised or bloody player back to mom after the game, would you?

  15. ok, I thought you were saying NCAA changed too. I don't do college ball, so I didn't know. At plate meeting (with captains in attendance), after getting line up cards, I look at them and usually give something like........NL vs AL today, right guys?.......................once
  16. Apologies. Given that the topic is 2020 DH Rule Change, I naturally assumed the conversation WAS for NFHS. I didn't realize NCAA changed theirs also. Thanks.
  17. You're in our thoughts and prayers brother!
  18. Thanks guys. I'll be happy just to the pain relief and be able to sleep more than 3-4 hours a night. (up at 3:15 this morning)

    NCAA Test

    I was always under the impression that a sub has entered the game: when the player takes the position on the field on defense, base or box on offense and play resumes.
