Discussion: MIKEN ULTRA 2 WITH ASA2000 / ISF HAS A "W" MELTED IN THE END CAP

somebody else mentioned that when the first batches of ULTRA 2 'S CAME OUT, THEY WERE SELLING FOR 299.00.

WITH A ONE TIME REPLACEMENT WARRANTY..... WHEN THAT FIRST BAT BROKE YOU COULD RETURN IT FOR A ONE TIME NO CHARGE REPLACEMENT, AND THIS REPLACEMENT WAS STAMPED WITH THE MELTED W........

AFTER THAT, ULTRA 2'S PRICES DROPPED TO 199.00 WITH NO REPLACEMENT...

SO, IT APPEARS I MAY HAVE ONE OF THE EARLIST ULTRA 2, WHICH HAD THE REPLACEMENT WARRANTY.....

SO, ANOTHER QUESTION, IF IT'S OLD COMPOSITE MATL , DOES THAT MAKE THE BAT STRONGER OR WEAKER ?

Discussion: Lower back problems

Guys, any of you boys have/had lower back problems that affects basically everything, even worse softball. ?

it's gotten to the point that it is affecting my swing, bending over, etc.etc.etc..
I am taking one 800mg ibuprofen per day, I take them only during tournaments and no other time, but the rest of the time I suffer with the chronic pain...
this has been going on for the last year, and it's getting old.

apparently L-4, L-5 ARE INVOLVED.....

YOU see the commercials on TV , where a guy is having back problems and cant move, he goes to the doctor, get a 1" incision in his back and then he is running around like a young guy, with no pain. SOMEHOW, I DONT BELIEVE IT.

I HAVE HEARS ABOUT INJECTIONS INTO THE DAMAGED AREA, but this sounds scary as these would be temporary at best.

I have not heard anything good of operational results where they cut to fix the problem...

ANY INPUT BASED ON YOUR EXPERIENCE IF YOU ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM ???

THANKS !!!

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

A lot of good men & women have made the ultimate sacrifice to provide the citizens of this country to express their feelings in any way they please, good or bad.....

As a hispanic born in this country, i just dont see how anybody cannot respect the flag or respect the country they live in. This country is not perfect, but it is much closer to perfection than any country in this world.. if a person does not agree with that observation, and is UNHAPPY living here , THERE IS NO ANCHOR TIED TO THEIR BUTTS, GO TRY IT SOME OTHER PLACE..

Discussion: HOW TO PREVENT A HEATSTROKE

GOOD ADVISE from the MAYO CLINIC ABOVE.

During the game, players should drink a 1-3 cups of water between innings, even if you need to force yourself to do it.

got extra players ? utilize them...

most teams have 2-4 " fast runners " that are used to run for the slow players, HAVE MERCY ON THESE GUYS!

Carry a water bottle in your bag, keep it filled in case the water container goes empty.

Keep an eye out for your team-mates to see if they are developing any symptoms of heatstroke.

common sense sometimes goes out the window during a game, look out for each other, especially the guys that dont want/like to sit..

temps in texas can/will get hotter in the coming months, plan accordingly..

Discussion: non prescription " polarized " sunglasses for softball.

Wayne, can you bring out a couple of pair to check out next time we get together ?

Alan: i'll check out your page, thanks ....

Dan, i found a pair of welding glasses and bought them , will try them out at a practice. thanks !

there is a company called " LOCS ", they make " super darks" sunglasses, and they are really dark. i bought a pair, but i only use them when the early sun is right in your eyes and i am batting... they are too dark when out in the outfield.
If you wear them too long, you will have trouble adjusting to normal light when you remove them...

Discussion: non prescription " polarized " sunglasses for softball.

Guys : what brand ( non-prescription) is the best pair of polarized sunglasses for playing the outfield ?

dont need to spend $200.00 plus, just something reasonable that would help when the ball is coming out of the sun. non glare, not super darks, etc.

what is your experience ?

thanks !!!!!

Discussion: Renting a car from Budget

Another thought, if BUDGET is advertising on the SSUSA web page...

Seems to me that SSUSA should try to help resolve this problem, after all, a senior softball player that is part of SSUSA just got nailed.

HOPE SSUSA RESPONDS ON THIS POST, IF NOT, YOU MAY HAVE TO APPROACH SSUSA FOR ASSISTANCE.

IF BUDGET WILL NOT RECTIFY THIS PROBLEM, I FOR ONE, WILL NOT GIVE THEM MY BUSINESS , I AM SURE OTHER PLAYERS FEEL THE SAME WAY. THIS FACT NEEDS TO BE CONVEYED TO SSUSA.

SSUSA CANNOT AFFORD PLAYERS UPSET WITH ONE OF THEIR ADVERTISERS.

Discussion: Renting a car from Budget

I would tell the credit card company that you will only pay them for the amount of contract price you signed for when you picked up the car...

let the credit card company fight it out with Budget, at the worst offer a split on the overcharge. dont give up, 85.00 buys a lot beer.

good luck !!!! you got nothing to lose for trying..

Discussion: OKRA FOR POSSIBLE DROP IN GLUCOSE/SUGAR LEVELS FOR DIABETICS ?

Have you guys ever hear of this ? IT will not cure diabetes " but " may lower your levels .

Article says you cut off the ends of the okra, cut into the side, drop 2-3 pcs into a glass of water,
let it sit overnite, and drink the slimy concoction first thing in the morning..

Anybody try this ??

Worth a shot, okra is cheap..

according to a blood test i had done, i am told i am pre diabtic, so , i am going to try it, in addition to change my diet and back into the gym and lose a few lbs...

any input would be appreciated, there are posting on the web about this stuff.

SNOPES says it might be helpful..

i really need to find out if anybody had any success with this.

thanks !
