The guy I worked with looked (and acted) more like Flip Wilson.

Sorry all...I will try to make things easier to read. Sometimes my mind works faster than my fingers

As for what this guy looked like, he wasn't a Flair....I'd say abour 42, short brown hair, about 5'10". Probably isn't the guy you are thinking of....

Too funny!

In that picture, Flip is actually demonstrating a better strike signal than this guy had!

Only reason why I ask is because there's one umpire in the area who looks an awful lot like Rick Flair (who, coincidentally, is also from this area). Said umpire also calls NSA, and said umpire has been discussed in this thread.

His antics are very similar to the umpire mentioned in this thread.

Without getting to personal or anything. But to say a ump looked and acted like Flip Wilson is a stupid comment. As a African American I can say that there was maybe 7 black umpires at the umpires meeting before the nationals. And they were all mid-aged 50-60. And I was the youngest black guy there at 27. And with me wearing my hair in braids I sure the heck know your not talking about me. So who are you talking about......? Hmmmm..

Read my post again.

This was an umpire who I worked with (QUOTE) "a couple of weeks ago" (UNQUOTE).

Nowhere did I imply that this was at the NSA tournament being discussed here.

And the guy did look like Flip. And acted like him too. Not that there's anything wrong with that...unless you're in the course of umpiring a softball game and should be acting like an umpire instead of a comedian.

Looks like he is getting ready to demonstrate the old double-fist pump for us.

In the "credit where credit is due" department, that wasn't one of Flip's routines (the real Flip, not the umpire).

You're thinking of Pigmeat Markham and the catchphrase made famous on "Laugh-In".

Here is a bio:

Now that's funny! Some of the best humor around can be found on this board. Flip Wilson demonstrating the old double-fist pump. ...Fun at the ole' ball park! .Al
