does anyone else umpire. i umpire 9-12 year olds. it amazes me how serious some parents take it. you would think it is life or death to some of these people. umpireing thisn't as easy as u would think so next time u are at a game lay off the officals.
'Doughnuts...is there anything they can't do?'
too much pressure, I don't think I could do it . . . well I could do it but I wouldn't enjoy it

Red: 'I do. I smoke weed all the time. And I took a shower earlier. What am I? A fucking superhero? That's plenty.'

at the peewee hockey game, where some parents go insane,
the ref thinks they're a pain, at the minor hockey game.
she shoots back at him!
parents are psyco. watch out for the ones who've been hiding beer in their coffee cups, they're violent and loud.
I don't take drugs,

My friend got in a fistfight with a dad when the dad flipped out over a gamedeciding call. His kid was a 12 year old, and my friend was 17. Neither my friend or the dad got hurt, but the dad was banned from all athletic activities forever. Umping is dangerous.
We todd did. I am so for king we todd did.
as a baseball player at the high school we are forced to ref little league games. It is a hard job.

Me: 'How come every time we talk, the subject of my mum using drugs comes up?'
James: 'It doesn't.'
Me: 'It does though.'
James: 'Yeah, it really does.'

James: 'Ha! Your mum on drugs!!!'
Yeah dude, parents are nutz. I Coached soccer, once I had to literally pull this kids dad off the ref because he called an obvious penalty shot. The kid actually should have got a red card (intetional hand ball in the crease), and the parent should have been banned. Nobody reported it though, but I mad the dad promise me that he would stop talking. I felt so bad for the ref though. You couldn't pay me enough.
