State Finals for volleyball! Second go round for me. This time I am sure that I will not be as edgy as I was last time. Can't wait for the match. It is a real joy having the best seat in the house to watch two really talented teams go at it. 

I will try to not suck. But, as I say to SWMBO, I can't make any promises

Nice job. I was a line judge for a state championship this year. Give me a couple more years, and I'll be on the stand. :wink:

Action photo of the match. Two evenly matched teams. Came down to the team in blue playing a great defense that kept their opponent from playing the power game they had played all year.

And I didn't suck!

And the photographer got the most important participant of the game in the shot, too!


How many net violations did you call?

None! Not my job. My partner called three.

I had two ball handling calls. One was so obvious every grandma in the stands knew it and the other was a double contact on a set.

The athletes decided the outcome. I was more like a symphony conductor, waving my arms while the talent entertained the spectators.

      I was fortunate enough to be selected for the MHSAA State Semi/Finals last month.  My first game (semi) I had the plate and had this photo taken ...I thought I'd share.....

      To all the brothers here in Umpire-Empire, I wanted to thank you for all of the help over the years, ...YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!  I wanted to pass along that I was selected to work the MHSAA Semi/Finals this year.  What an honor, privilege,.... and what an experience!!!  One of the best things about it was that my crew comprised of 2 other partners that I work with regularly during the season, one of them being our own @Jeff C.
      I had 3 games ... 2 semi finals on Thursday, and one final on Saturday.  My rotation was the plate first game out on Thursday ..... 10 innings later .... WOW!   We rotated like normal as MHSAA goes 4 man from the Quarterfinals onward.  The experience of learning the system quickly and catching on with the rotations was a blast!
      A special thank you to @Jeff C. also for being a great umpire, a great partner, and a great friend ....  it was an honor to work with you sir!!
      My U-E brothers .......... Thanks again for the years of experience, knowledge, and of course, the comradery of the brotherhood!
