Umpire in Chief

My 12 y/o daughter as an umpire...

Recommended Posts

So last night my partner for my game today cancelled due to a personal situation. As of 10:00 pm I still had no partner.

 

So I say to my daughter, "You don't have any plans for tomorrow so I'm going to need you to come to my games with me and be my umpiring partner."

 

My daughter says back to me, "I can't be an umpire I don't know anything about ladders or flees I can't be an umpire."

 

"What the hell are you talking about ladders and flees?"

 

"It's in a poem we read in class about baseball."

 

Me: "You are definitely not umpiring with me. Go to bed."

I'm thinking you just wanted to torture your daughter. She must be the blacksheep of the family for you to try and get her to umpire. ha

It all worked out. I had a good partner I like working with but I re-established my nickname of extra-innings Workman.

Guess your partner's nickname is not Balkin Bob either, which would have got you out of there before your nickname came into effect.
