I will be there. Looking forward to it. Unless you are from Raleigh, Durham, Garner, Cary etc. it is all the same place.

I know this is sacrilege for the people that lie there, but it is true for the other 99.9% of the world.

Raleigh, Durham, Cary (about 20 min apart). . . In Long Island, you can dive 20 minutes and still be in the same town.

I won't be coming here that much anymore. I might check in now and again.

To Dave (NCASAUMP)

The IUCs at the fields were excellent, as far as giving me concrete information on the goods and fixables of my mechanics. Over the week, I was at Bond, Garner and Thomas Brooks, so I worked with a few of them.

I'm a better umpire for having worked this Nationals. Thanks.

Glad to hear you had a good time! Next time, give me a shout, and we can meet up.

When were you at Bond, and at what fields, if I might ask? You can send it in a PM if you don't want to say publicly.

I was at Middle Creek on Saturday, Thomas Brooks on Sunday, then Bond 1 & 2 from Monday through Wednesday, running water and Gatorade to the fields (some may say I brought too MUCH water/Gatorade to the fields, but we won't mention any names).

No one will ever say I'm dehydrated.

When you gotta go you gotta go.

Good to see the bathrooms at all fields missed me.

The UIC didn't knock me for my game, he knocked me for having to go. In the 6th inning of a 39 minute disaster.

I told you to bring a water/Gatorade for each inning. I was silly enough to drink it. All.
