Woo-Hoo...it's a start

While I will be the first to admit it isn't exactly a State assignment...just got the call that I am in the play-offs! First round game in the private school brackets.

Even though I've worked hard over the last year to improve, I really didn't expect a post season assignment this year...figured next year was a possibility.

I"M PUMPED!

Congratulations! Things like that don't come without a hard effort and a good job by you, so you deserve it.

Congrats - I know the feeling. Just got called Monday and our crew got our first JUCO tourny mens game together. I had a womans game last year as a "third" but this is the first time with our crew intact.

THAT is the attitude to have!!! Unlike the fellow in another recent thread.

Congrats!!! You're going to have a blast. I remember my first playoff game....it was one of the most memorable/exciting games I've ever worked.

Congrats Larry. Well deserved I'm sure.

I got to work a playoff game last week with a 4th-year official doing his first playoff game ever. He was so nervous before the game that I thought he was going to puke.

He did great. I'm sure you will too.

I was a little tight before my first playoff game, but after 2 or 3 times down the court, you settle down like its just another game. However, for some reason, these games seem to be a lot more fun, so enjoy it.
