Talking

OK, you Dave-o-philes. Here's the latest chapter from this past weekend's rec league games.

Saturday - varsity boys. First game: Dave calls A1 for a foul. A1 says to Dave, "WHAT THE F*** KIND OF CALL WAS THAT???" Dave replies, "There are basically two kinds of fouls. That kind was a personal foul. Here's the other kind." TWEET - rings him up.

Second game: Dave calls a carry on A1 (different A1). A1 yells, "YOU SUCK". Dave replies, "No, actually I blow. Watch." TWEET - rings him up.

Sunday - varsity girls (I didn't work with him that day, but I got there early for my shift and watched the end of his last game.) Dave calls 3 seconds on A1. She remarks loudly, "That was an awfully quick 3 second call." Dave replies, "We're playing under FIBA rules - I'm counting in metric." The girl had no clue.

A few minutes later, B1 is in the lane, then gets out. Coach A yells that she was in there for more than 3 seconds (she wasn't, of course). Dave replies, "Not even in dog years, coach."

If there's ever a basketball sitcom, I know who the head writer should be.

I like those, especially the metric only.

This is the first time I have read the "Dave files".
Is this person real or fictional?
If I was doing a game with this guy, I probably would
be rolling on the floor laughing too hard to officiate.

Dave is real. He does rec league games in Portland, Oregon.

Is it possible to get Dave to do a camp or clinic and teach communication. I would love to get a video or cassette of that.

Cool Dave as an entertainment

Sorry Ilya, Dave does not go west of 158th St. His rec league career is mostly in Tigard, Beaverton, Lake Oswego and Portland.

For those of you who would like to see him do a clinic or even make a video, he has a specific aversion to those kinds of things. Believe it or not, he is quite shy off the court.

I once asked him if he would let me scan his photo and post it for his fans. He declined but said to tell all of you that if you want to know what he looks like, just picture Chucky but taller and with the same attitude.

Actually, Chucky has more hair than Dave

Someday, when I have nothing else to do (like in about 100 years), I'll try to compile a list of Dave-isms and post them somewhere. Maybe I can get Referee Magazine to publish them. Yeah, suuuuuuuure.
