Could get worse, but only if you want the answers to any of
the test.

I've had three different kind of plate shoes. The best are my Tanel low tops. I have been stepped on by male catchers with metal cleats twice. Took gouges out of the shoe, butI still have my toes.

Yes, but ugly shoes!

I have heard that Tanel had a good
plate shoe, but as I stated, I rarely wear them.

Rachel showed me your picture, Glen. I wouldn't worry too much about pretty shoes if I were you!

I think I know the one she showed you. But you have to remember,
I had just had to carry Rachel in the last game. Just Kidding,
we never got to work together.

The picture you posted is of bluezebra. I always reserve that one
for him.

Big and ugly, probably smell too.
My dad gets New Balance in a 161/2 W, he has to order them though. They have some very good plate/turf shoes by his standards.

From my understanding

New Balance has acquired a dress shoe and work shoe company. Dress shoes are Durhams, made in North Carolina. I know NB is exapanding business, and they may make some steel toe varieties.

As we all know, finding big shoes isn't fun.

As stated last year, I'm glad my feet stopped at size 13 when I was twelve.

Little brother, though, he's an 18 EEEE in his steeel toe workboots...I looked and company doesn't make anything that comes close to looking good for a plate shoe.

May want to contact the NB website and email the company...maybe they could point you in the right direction.

Actually, the pics she showed me were good; just kidding around.

What do you thing of my ASA smilie?

I need to figure out how to get a mask on him.

The ASA thing is cool. I was going to ask how and where you
came up with it. I copied and pasted it to Micro. word so I would
have it.

You come up with some great ones.

Hey Glen:

Why don't you post that picture of you that I sent you? So the folks can see the true Papa Smurf.
I don't know how to do that.

The one where I was worn out from carrying you all day?

ROFLMAO:::

Not true folks, we never got to get on the field together. We
had the same rotation nearly the whole tournament [AFA 18U Nationals]. The
only game she could have seen of mine, she and the other female umpires
were already gone. Our game took place at 1:00 AM Sunday Morning. Weren't
many folks left to see it and it went ITB, only to see the winner have to
return at 9:00 AM Sunday morning.

Rachel, I don't have the pics.

Chris is still wanting those of him. I sent them to him, but he could
not bring them in. I have since had to reboot and lost some good stuff.
Sent most to an old computer, but not all.

I edited an existing smilie from one of the similie web sites. All I added were the two "A"'s plus changed the red hat brim to blue.
