    ... Terrible.

    I refereed five U-11 girls games and a U-10 boys game at a tournament. After the last game of the day, a coach comes up to my ref crew and says, "You know, you guys are terrible!"

    His team just lost 4-0. I wanted to remind him of that, and if we're terrible, and his team loses 4-0, what does that make him. However, I took the high road and said, "Thanks coach. See you tomorrow."

    So ... I'm terrible.

    As for my day umpiring a doubleheader, my first game was at a Class AA stadium.

    Then I go to a piddly little chicken shit Godless County field for my second game.

    BBAM (right) gets into it with a miscreant at a game.

    You can buy one of those at most sporting goods stores. The officiating publications always have ads for those, too.

    I mean, if you don't buy one, you're terrible.
