Talking "you've got to call something!!!"

That's what a coach screamed at me right after my partner blew his whistle and signaled the ball went OOB. I turned to the coach, blew my whistle and yelled "ICING - we'll have a faceoff down at the blue free throw circle. There coach - I called something, OK?"

He got this puzzled look and just sat down. I guess it worked.

Did his goalie raise his hand to let him know it was going to be icing before you called it?

From the official rules, I believe:
Well, um, icing happen when the puck come down, bang you know, before the other guys you know. Nobody there, you know. My arm go comes up then the game stop then start up. - Denis Lemieux

(yes, now you can all flame me for being the coach that knows nothing about two sports....)

From the NFHS training dept:

Well, of COURSE, he sat down. The seat belt rule was now in place.

I get this a lot from JH coaches that are just volunteer coaches for the most part and don't really know the rules. My favorite was just a few weeks ago (I may have mention this one) where a coach was like "aren't you going to call anything?!" and then in the second half he yells "oh NOW you're calling something". WHACKED him with a T.

I once had a coach ask me loudly "hey, does your whistle work?!". To which I blew my whistle, T'd him up and said "hey, I guess it does work".

That's your dream? Yikes, how old are you!?

OK - I checked your age - man, you gotta set your goals higher than this son!

I see in your profile that you attended the "U of Illinois in Horticulture". Being from Illinois originally, I'm familiar with the U of Illinois in Champaign, but I don't know where Horticulture is. Is it near Peoria?

From what I've learned in my short time on this earth: Set your goals low and you will never be disappointed!

Well, I would have written it out so it would've said "with a degree in Horticulture" but the character space in that area "About Me" ran out. Therefore I had to improvise, and I HOPED that people would get the gist of it. FYI Mark, it was the U of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Horticulture... Either way, I'm currently not near Peoria...

where the player with the ball goes flying one direction after a somewhat violent collision with a defender who bounces another direction, and the ball goes rolling off a third direction, and there's no whistle,I sometimes say (never yell) to the referee when he gets hear me, "We usually get a first down for that." I usually get a puzzled look too, though sometimes a smile.

I like your, "ICING," that's good. Another one you might try; jump up, land in a crouch, throw your arms out to the side palms down, and say with emphasis, "SAFE!"

I've done something like that quite often. I make a fist with my thumb sticking out and yell "You're out". Of course, that has a different meaning.
