In what countries is it required that everybody stand up for the National Anthem? I'll go first. North Korea.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

Oh, Benji. You don't have the rationale to ascertain that I'm an educated person and you're not. FYI ~ You don't have to have balls to go into the military or law enforcement. Hence, the women that do the same job.

Coming out of high school I had a Marine recruiter call me once a week. The reason. Because I made excellent grades and I was a leader. To readily digress, I had a few ex-military tell me not to sign up......simple as that.

As for law enforcement, I'm not especially fond of donuts. I seriously doubt many of the old-timers could pass a fitness for duty test, and the new ones today are so jacked up on speed or steroids it is pathetic. And since when did it take balls to shoot an unarmed person being held down on the ground? Why is it people like you want the responsibility, but none of the accountability? That's where the problem lies.

Would you be like Darren Wilson? Wilson murdered a young black man, lie about it, and then run like a scalded dog to who knows where.
Why in the hell would an innocent man, especially a sworn officer of the law, just vanish into to thin air? Perhaps the reason being, a Go Fund Me page raised $250,000 for his legal fees for which he never needed as he wasn't indicted. Also, he was able to procure approximately the same sum for an interview. Image that, a cool half mil for murdering a citizen.

The Police Department in Ferguson, Mo. had persistently and repeatedly violated the constitutional rights of African Americans, jailing them for minor offenses far more often than whites, using traffic stops to arrest them disproportionately and subjecting them to excessive force, a Justice Department investigation has concluded.

The investigation portrayed a city in which police dogs were set upon blacks but not whites and where blacks were seven times more likely to be subjected to force than whites, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation’s findings.

I do find your classic comeback of "Don't believe the lies Obama tell you and if you don't like it move to Iraq" amusing if not trite in nature. You, sir, are a classic example of the systematic dumbing down of America. If you don't like it, I sure Obama has a bed with your name on it at the FEMA Hotel nearest you.

As I concluded this broadcasting day with the playing of the National Anthem in the background as in the olden day of television, I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that you are a knob!

Hey, DOLFAN, that door swings both ways. Anybody that wants my respect really needs to earn it. Calling someone an a-hole and telling them to go F#$k themselves doesn't cut it for me.

Learn to play well with others, and they might learn to play well with you.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

Oxymoron of the day. Colin Kaepernick wants to make America great. Donald Trump tells him if he doesn't like it he should find an another country. Donald Trump wears a hat that says make America great again.................What? 1950's great? There are several racist policemen, military, and ex-military so I fail to see the point of disrespect.

I've yet to hear any of them protest a KKK parade down the middle of Main St waving Old Glory. Then you have that redneck wannabe yuppie on Duck Dynasty wearing a flag as a do-rag. Where is the outrage there? And what about those outlaw drug dealing, stealing biker gangs sporting the flag like they're real patriots? Somebody stop me before I get too carried away.

And by the way, the military is the biggest "socialist" program going today. How many of them apply for subsidized housing, food stamps, and medical. Hate Obamacare, then you hate the Veteran's Administration healthcare program too. Let's not forget the free college tuition. That's right, it is Socialism 101. Those are my tax dollars at work. I expect more bang for my buck.

Then you have those with Agent Orange, the Pat Tillman coverup and all the reported rapes and assaults on female military personnel that the higher ups never do anything about. Wait, then there is David Petraeus leaking classified material to his cheating on her husband biographer, Paula Broadwell. Who does he think he is, Hillary Clinton? The military isn't sounding so hot from where I sit.

I could probably write a novel about the police and their itchy trigger fingers. However, the one that sticks out in my mind the most happened in Cleveland not long ago. A police officer rolls up on an eleven-year-old Tamir Rice and shoots him. A police call came in that a black man was holding a gun in a park. Would they have shot a white man in cold blood? Didn't the cop know that Ohio is an open carry state? The real topper is the city of Cleveland sending a bill to the parents of the slain lad for his ambulance ride to the hospital where he pronounced dead on arrival. What happened to Officer Barney Fife, Jr? Apparently nothing. He must just drive around all day in his police car playing with the siren and occasionally looking at the bullet they let him carry in his pocket.

I'll be waiting with bated breath when all you ex-military, ex-policemen, etc. go off the deep end about the above I just mentioned. Those are the people and things that make y'all look bad, not Colin Kaepernick.

Dear bkb55,

I have worked several high-level playoff games in the state of Texas behind the plate. Sometimes you do have to look over the catcher if he takes that slot away..........but standing up almost straight over the catchers as those umpires did, it is understandable why they missed so many pitches.

You have to get down low and stick your nose in there so to speak. You keep your head still and track the balls with your eyes. If I was working those games, I would have had to get down on one knee to have an effective strike zone.

Another thing I noticed was they all used the same lame girls' softball mechanic to signify a strike. I'm sure they were instructed to do this. Let them use a little variety back there for Pete's sake.

Dear Benji4,

Are your white parents still alive or did they die from their disappointment in you?

Would it make you feel better if he wore a do-rag OF a flag on his head like the redneck wannabe yuppie from Duck Dynasty?

YEESH.

P. S. ~ Enclosed in the mail to you is a check for the sum of one U. S. dollar. This will enable you in the purchase of a new personality so you might readily dispose of the cheap one that you so proudly flaunt to the dismay of any educated person of any race, creed or color.

YOU'RE DISMISSED!!!!

Let meathead player who wanted a release to serve a one-year suspension. Nobody needs a jackass like that on the ballfields. A real man would know how to act accordingly.

bkb555, the plate umpire works in what is call the "slot". That is the area between the batter and catcher. You can't see anything right behind the catcher.

They have to pay kids, because sensible coaches and parents don't exist when it comes to their babies.

Don't knock it until you've tried it.......umpire associations are always looking for good umpires.

Discussion: Labor Day Classic Postponement

From what I understand, some tournament director double booked the fields. Teams are dropping so fast they might have enough to do the whole thing in one day.

I'm sure everybody wants to go find a room on Labor Day weekend with people in town wanting to float the river.

Pathetic state of affairs.

Discussion: Little League World Series

The umpires at the LLWS are volunteers in the league they work in. They do pay their own travel expenses to Williamsport. Everything else is free as to meals, lodging, transportation, and uniforms. At some levels, it is expected that the plate umpire expand the strike zone. Usually a full ball to either side of the plate.

I umpired high school enough to know if that umpire has any real experience. I've seen some that look like they've done it often enough or attended an umpiring clinic out there.

Umpiring is one of the oldest good ole boy clubs around. Most qualified umpires don't work Little League or any youth league period. The parents and coaches are nightmares. I've worked select ball tournaments for the smaller kids. I've had send to Coach Dad to the parking lot on a couple occasions, but the tournament director let them come back when they should have been suspended for the next game. That's when I took off the mask and left myself. If they can't play without a coach, try playing without the umpire.

Discussion: Looking to play in O"Fallon tourney

You might want to include your age, level of play, positions, and where you reside. Would help you possibly get some feelers.

Good luck finding a team to play on.

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

I went back in February for a little vacation. I enjoyed it. Too bad my back started to hurt from standing up so long and my bad knee hurt from sitting in a car for 20 hours on the drive down. If I go again, I'd like to work on my pitching and make different plans for the trip. Looking into buying a Class C motor home.

There were three women there that could really play!!!!

Don't buy a tee made of plastic. Soft rubber will last for an eon. Llabtfos hit the nail on the head so to speak.

Buy a tee that has a long platform to hit off of.

Discussion: Miken Team Shorts?!

I bought a pair of baggy long softball pants for $1.88 made by Rawlings from Baseball Express. Cut the legs, got them professionally hemmed for $6.00 and they work great.

If you have some old softball pants you might want to try it.

Discussion: SOFTBALL SHOES

A couple of years ago, I got on the Adidas website and ordered me a custom made pair of shoes. You can either get low or mid cut. You can even design the shoes in the color scheme you most desire. Mine have plenty of bounce and are comfortable when worn all day. Thay is water resistant too. No more wet feet and shoes for early morning games

I've also have a pair of New Balance turf shoes in which I put a padded innersole. They are very comfortable and are a little wider around the ball of the feet for comfort.

Just putting this out as another option. They do work well for my feet.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

A pedicure from time to time will really help believe it or not.
