Shout out to Double D Donnie the director. Once again he was kind and surprisingly funny to the players. He is a class act and love dealing with him. He should be in charge of 40s at Worlds.

Props to the Heavy set tall ump. Was fair and honest. Admitting missing a call and was polite when players were frustrated.

D- rating to the shorter ump with the mustache. Played all cool at coin flip and his first priority was safety then we start game and call time because the mud behind SS was thick and you could slide. When asked to get crew back out he puts hands up says it is what it ball. Safety?????

He also Called coaches out 5 times total from both sides with warning after warning over meaningless crap. If you dont want to be there dont show up. Much more props to the big ump he came to me, politely said the crew told him that was all the work they were going to do. Ump recognized the problem and calmly said its out of my hands. Much better way to address a safety issue.

We sucked but we beat ourselves.
