Too Many Games ???

Bingo. Happened to me. For the first time ever, I worked too many scholastic games. Never thought that I would ever say that about scholastic games. There were times that I was praying for snow to get a day off. And I'm retired and have few family responsibilities. I can't imagine working as many games as I did this past season, often working six scholastic game dates a week, and having a day job and family responsibilities.
