Great night

With all of the threads here about coaches antics, player issues, and the like, I thought I'd post about my games last night.

Boys B-squad (10th grade)/JV Doubleheader.

First game:
We go almost 4 minutes without a whistle, and we only have 5 fouls called in the first half. Visitors are leading by nearly 15 points at one point, but the home team finally starts making some open 3-point shots and comes storming back, only to lose by 2 points. The only comment I heard from either coach other the "time out" was after a no-call on a blocked shot:

Coach: "Why wasn't there a foul on that play?"
Me: "Coach, the defender hit the ball clean, and didn't make contact with your player at all."
Coach: "I disagree"
Me: "Fair enough, coach"

Second game:
Pregame conference with V coach:
My Partner: "Do you have any questions?"
Coach: "Nope, and you won't hear a peep out of me all game."
Me: "Coach, that's what they all say"
Coach: "I mean it."

Sure enough, he (and the H coach) didn't say anything to either of us for the entire game.
The game started, we went 3.5 minutes without a whistle, and 6 total fouls called in the first half. Another barn-burner of a game, this time ending with the Home team winning by 3.

I wish they could all be like that.

If they were all like that it would be as boring as heck to work basketball.
Every game is a big game

Fairly quiet night. Coaches coaching. It was a good game. Mid to late 4th period I call an intentional foul. B1 starts going for ball but A1 turns. B1 then basically bearhugs and tackles A1. I thought about flagrant but decided it did not merit that.

I report. Coach quietly asked if I was sure it was intentional. I replied he tackled him from behind - what would you have me call? He said: "how about just a regular foul - we're behind by 10 and I don't think we can recover from a 4 point play at this point." I laughed with him.
When I want your opinion - I'll give it to you!

Similar experience last night for me as I was doing two "snow" makeup games.

2nd game I had several stretches of 3-4 minutes with no whistles. Great fun! Neither half went into the bonus. Done in less than an hr!

To top it all off, I had a great partner!

These are the kind of games that keep me coming back for more!
There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
