Discussion: Oldest Senior Participant

Steve: We all fall into that category. My main intention was to give HIGH Fives to these guys. I've been in it since 99; but I know there are some 70 & 80 teams; it would be great to know who has logged the most years in SSB Tourneys.
Imagine someone in their 80's that has logged 30 years X 9(avg tourneys a year) X $300 (est) per tourney = $81,000.00 for the LOVE OF THE GAME & THE COMARADERIE!!! Awesome!!!

STEVE: Injured reserve; will not be in Montgomery.

Discussion: Oldest Senior Participant

Two things I do not think has been discussed:
1. Who is the Oldest Player (on the board or someone you know)that participates or has participated in SSB Tournaments?

2. What Player has logged the MOST consecutive years in SSB Tournaments. How many years?

Thanks

Discussion: survey

Well: I have pushed for a Player Poll (been in the SSUSA since 99). IMO if I was not important enough to survey or poll in reference to the AAA HR or any other Rules, then I am not important enough to Poll in reference to the 1 & 1!!!

Looks like a PP could be launched just as easy as the 1 & 1 count survey was executed!!

Been thinking about my friends that I know down in the Panhandle; hoping everything is alright. Steve, Mike, Patty Mc, Wendall, Bill G, & many others.

Do not know others in lower Ala, Miss & La; but know that ALL of that sector is in my prayers.

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Tri18: Black Centenarian; I had only used it in BP to get to the 200 breakinh swings in; then used it in 2 games; actually did not swing it 8 times; maybe 5-6.

BP was with balls from 2006; they were on the soft side; were dry, never water logged; VERY DISAPPOINTED in this bat!!!

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Just TERRRRRRRRIIIBLEEE!!!!
Can't afford these high priced bats anyway that have NO warranty; I did not even get 250 swings on this bat & got a 4" split.

Problem was: I was not even swinging hard.

I have an OLD U2 & a tank of a 585 & of course my 2 trusty Original Veloes.

Economy the way it is: I will just have to use what I got.

250 swings; about $.75 a swing............Just Terrrrible!!!

Discussion: ex-teammate looking for a team

Bruce: thanks for the info on Wayne; gave him a call; he would be a good fit for our Columbus 55 team. The 55 coach is going to call him & work out some details.

The 55 team is a AAA team & I checked the IP List & did not see him on there; does he qualify to play AAA?

Discussion: Catfish Recipes

Southpaw: you hit the nail on the head on the recipe; did exactly that; used some Lefty Cajun Spice, oil & slow cooked for 30 minutes; wish I could have saved you a piece, but you know.............When I started eating,, I plum forgot your name.... Senior Moment I guess!!!

Next batch: eggs, corn meal, little flour, buttermilk, zesty italian dressing, lemon pepper & garlic batter: cook slow then add some lemon juice.

Better get started!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Catfish Recipes

Somedays are awesome!!!
Started fishing about 5 yesterday with chicken gizzards (had livers, but they were taking them off of the hook); 1 1/2 hours & 2 whole gizzards later I had to stop cause my old rod snapped an eyelet off the end as I pulled in the last one.

Well, all that to say this; 7 catfish; 37 lbs on the scale; largest one was 29" long!!!!

OK, I am bragging a little, sorry; now for the real deal; you old timers (guys or gals) give me some recipes!!!

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Good feedback: I hit most of the balls on a line, so only a few got any air underneath.

I had been thinking about the White Combat, but I do not like the smaller knob.

My Original Veloes were like that; took about 4-500 swings & they were good to Launch.

Will give an update ASAP.

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Broke my last 510 Lauch; used 2 since 07; have an Original ASA U2; but decided to add another Senior Bat; so I purchased a 30 oz Black Centenarian.

Hit BP with it twice; about 60 balls total; hits about the same distance as my Demarini Dbl Wall 30 oz; that's around 300-305' with balls I got from Bill G of AMI back in 06. My Miken 585 outhits it; after ALL that jargon; does this model take a long time to break in?

Discussion: Talking Trash

Trash Talking:
Told my wife I could cook better than her; McDonald's $1.00 hamburgers are getting monotonous.

Told her I knew how to run a house better than her: so now I get to run the vacuum, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer.

Told my wife that she had some qualities that I did not like; she told me it was because of those qualities that she did not get a better looking/richer husband.

Told my employer that I knew how to run a company better than him; unemployment benefits do not pay near what I was making under his employment.

I play on a team that we are always cutting up & semi-gouging each other, but never are we trash-talking each other down.

Senior Softballers should be over that junk: I will NEVER play with a trash-talker; there's enough junk in the media & in everyday life, that I will not tolerate it when I take my time & money to attend SSball Tourneys.

Mentioning Ali: I think Frazier went to his grave thinking about all the bad things that Ali said about him. I pick Frazier anyday.

BTW: If you believe in trash-talking try it out on your wife, kids & grandchildren & then see if anyone remembers you on Father's Day, BDay or Christmas.

Discussion: AGE & RATING MIXING AT TOURNAMENTS????

GaCMan; I picked that up; knew what you were talking about; these great guys will compete; but you are correct, would not be much more expense for the 55AAA Trophy.

BTW: what an incredible performance by GaCMan & his team; about 3-4 players could not make it, but they kept their heads up & contended.

PS Praises, accolades to Ronnie W; the ump @ Pensy with cancer that many of us gathered around last year & prayed with; GREAT report; has to report for a checkup in regards to his PAST cancer problems in a YEAR. Well worth the trip to get that info.

Discussion: ON MY HONOR 3

Paco13: "GaCMan, good post but it seems to me that you know who is doing it".

I know GaCMan well: in NO way would he cheat or allow anyone on his team to cheat; so I can reaffirm that he has no one on his team that cheats & we played together last year & there was no one that cheated on that team.

I do not bet, but that is one bet I would make.
