Mark Padget Remembered ...

I would often try to convince Mark Padgett to switch his jokes from "Hot Mom" to "Hot single Mom", not wanting to encourage officials to become home wreckers.

I miss Mark Padgett. Not only because of his great sense of humor, his childhood South Side of Chicago mobster stories, his pride in his Jewish faith, and his pride in the recreation leagues that he organized (offering "scholarships" to underprivileged youth), but also because of his insight into officiating recreation level basketball.

Sometimes some us forget that there's a whole world of basketball officiating under the professional, international, intercollegiate, and interscholastic level, and that the kids that play at these levels deserve to have some minimum level of competent officiating to fully enjoy their childhood basketball experiences. For some, perhaps many, this will be their last experience in organized basketball, and Mark Padgett was the guy to insure that their recreation experience was going to be a great one.

The easiest and most commonly recognized subject placement is the very first word of a sentence; whenever a sentence starts with a pronoun, you can bet it will be "I," "he," "she," "they," "who," or "whoever":
Whoever finishes the race first wins a trophy.
Whoever wants to go on the field trip is free to come.


Fixed it.

I wish you'd stop channeling Mark Padgett; it's rarely amusing.

Listen you whippersnapper! Wait to get to be our age and I guarentee you will change your mind.

P.S. I am in awe of Billy's technical skills to post these memes!

Also: BillyMac ancestors in northern Ireland are direct paternal descendants of the U Nill ("descendants of Niall") dynasty, including Niall of the Nine Hostages. Niall of the Nine Hostages is said to have been a King of Tara in northwestern Ireland in the late 4th century C.E. His name comes from a tale of nine hostages that he held from the regions he ruled over.

Prince BillyMac?
