2nd time in my career

Men's league last night. Game 2 of 3, Team B is a team made up of 4 officials, 1 former official, 2 HS JV coaches, and a couple others guys. Third quarter, B9 uses his fist to prevent an A player getting to the ball.

What did I do? Blow my whistle, skipped the stop-the-clock signal*, and used the FIBA team control signal and yelled . . .

"fisting". Everyone laughed. A lot. Not sure why.




* They play a running clock, so there really is no need to issue a stop-the-clock signal.

At this point, did the creepy "porn" music start playing? Maybe Larry Flynt came out to tell you good job. Just wondering, BUT, I would probably look for a different term next time

Incidentally what is the Fed signal for contacting with fist (if there is one?)? I think I called it one time 10 or so years ago and don't even remember what I signaled at the time, although I'm pretty sure it was probably the wrong signal!

But maybe they're in Love, and they'll Breed.

She obviously wanted a Sam Adams.
