Age and Experience

OK so this thread is simple...
Post your age and how long you've been officiating for. And if you want to "toot your own horn" you could post the level at which you officiate.

Il go first.

I'm 19, been officiating basketball for 4 years (since I was 15) and now I'm about to start my first year at the high school level.

Sigh.......

My name is Damien and I'm 14. I've been active at all levels since I was born. I know where you live.

That's kind of personal, isn't it?

Maybe we can make it simpler.

What is your name? What is your quest? What is your favorite color?

Welcome to the forum, CaRef. Not sure why people don't want to answer you, but I will. I'm 40(ish), been reffing for 15 years, and I do some D2/D3 college ball.

You have a big advantage over a lot of us in that you started very young. I hope your first HS season is exciting. Make sure you keep checking in here and let us know how it's going.

And how do we know that?

You could be a 73 year old, four foot two, 713 pound transexual canoe guide with two teeth that likes to play the banjo and hum the theme from Deliverance for all we know.

Or......we can have a poll.

Obviously, I'm not, or my name would be Jurassic Referee!

pwned.....on the official forum - WOW - thats some serious geek speak....

For those wondering....

Pwn (/poʊn/, /puːn/, /pəʔˈoʊn/, /pɔːn/, /piˈoʊn/, /pwəʔˈn̩/) is a leetspeak slang term, derived from the word "own",[1][2][3] that implies domination or humiliation of a rival, used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent who has just been soundly defeated. Past tense is sometimes spelled pwnt (pronounced with a t sound), pwned, pwnd, pwn3d, or powned (with the standard d sound). Examples include "pwnage" or "you just got pwned".


Next thing you know we'll be doing "First"

I didn't know that, Larks.

Somehow, after reading that, I now feel....whole.

Or maybe I just wet myself again......
