Thank You to those that Stood at Allan "Keith" Workman's Funeral



After predicting mostly sunny and pleasant conditions for the week and next week, the Weather Channel  aka: "Global Warming is not a Hoax Channel" are as bad as predicting the future as they are about the fake Science Global Warming....rains have been around most afternoon's, some of getting hit hard, while others are just getting nicked.  I was in Delphos last night, and much like the night before in Spencerville, we had rains, although not enough to cancel the games.  Last night however, we did shut the JV game down for a 45 minute delay due to lightning and thunder.  Finally getting the 10-9 Crestview over DSJ game in at around 8pm...making it a long three hours.

While by OSHAA and Federation rules we kept our teams off the fields and into the dugouts for the allotted time{30 minutes after the last lightning/thunder event} the idiots on the Pony League and Little League Diamonds had the kids out, with lighting flashes hitting within a short distance away...as a parent I would have been pissed!  Some of these guys coaching at these levels are morons....and that is a fact!

Tonight back at Delphos for a Varsity contest between St. Johns and visiting Wayne Trace, but that contest and tomorrow's MAC game at Parkway both are facing 60% chance of showers and storms...so we will see.  Next week ends if for me on the Spring schedule...with no District or Regional assignments this year, for the first time in awhile, I will finish up with a couple of Sectional games and some league make-up contests...frankly this has been one of the most dissatisfying springs in a few years...weather partly responsible, and other factors putting it in the crapper.

Having turned 64 in March, I am frankly thinking about how much longer I will do my hobby and beer money officiating...I thought I would do baseball until I died, and perhaps give up football and round ball in the next couple of years...now, I am looking at chucking them all before the next couple of years are past.  The political BS and power brokers are beginning to bore me.

But who knows?  This may just be a mid season rant...time will tell.

Salute and Good Bye....

Although I didn't make it to Al Workman's funeral in Louisville yesterday, just no time to dump games and find replacements this time of the season...at least 8 of our VSPA life members and wives, along with a handful of our Dayton Group were on had for the funeral of our Vietnam/Thailand
Brother...some driving from as far as Columbus and Chicago....

I will coordinate the efforts to find a suitable memorial honor, such as a brick at the Defender Statue, in both Allan and John Galinac's honor...John another of our Dayton Group passed away after a long battle with brain cancer...

Our numbers are growing smaller it seems, but the days and weeks....never to be replenished.


back later>>>
