    It is long, dull and needs to be done with post haste!

    Schedule family stuff on days off so I'm out of the house and not preoccupied thinking about how much longer it is until football season.

    That poll sorely needs an "All of the above" response. ;)

    On Mondays and Fridays if I am not on a field calling a Majors Game I am with my team practicing. We play one night a week, and then I have to call the other game that week. The one night off every week is spent getting our gear ready for the next day. On Saturday’s if I am not working I am on a baseball field, if we play the 10:00 game I have to call the 12:30 game and then we swap the next week. I get home about 3:00 and I am dead tired. Sometimes I have had to call the 4:00 Majors game on Saturday also, and when I say that I am behind the plate. Sundays is spent either with the family or on a baseball field calling an Adult League doubleheader of which I make $ 75.00 a game or $150.00 for a doubleheader. This goes from February through June. June gets here and we go into TOC Tournaments and All Star Games of which I travel all around the East County calling those games at different fields.

    What is this off season you guys talk about?

    I can assure you that you have never had your little bit in me :D

    But back on topic - family time, baseball games, watching basketball playoffs, yard work & fishing...

    But mostly just counting down to training camp...

    I want to go up by Bishop, into the Bishop Creek area, and spend a week fly fishing around North Lake, South Lake, and Lake Sabrina.

    With a knife pressed up against the throat of my nieghbors wife threatening to take her life; selling prescription med necklaces at the local orphange; in the bushes waiting for unsuspecting joggers; clubbing those filthy stinkbag seals at the cove near my job; and being a positive roll model in the community.

    Yeah not dealing with the offseason very well. Wowsers I just made a mess of my trousers.

    That sounds like a beautiful trip. My father grew up in Colorado and was a fly fisherman.

    I have mainly ocean fished in my life, but just recently started going locally to Irvine lake and my kids are into it now so it's becomming a family thing... Good times.

    I go to the beach with the wife and kids quite often. Alcohol helps waste a lot of the other time. I also play a shitload of Madden on wii and lift weights.

    North Lake is at 11,000 foot elevation, when the sun goes down, and your sitting around the camp fire watching the stars, you're high up enough to feel as if you can reach out and touch one. There is no radio or CD's for one week. I set up a tent, and we go out and catch breaksfast. If you dont bring it, you dont have it.

    You'll have to stick to your basketball and hockey teams to watch a playoff run that's for damn sure; that mediocre mess KC is putting forth this year is going to be oh so enjoyable for us bolt fans.

    No really though Tony Gonzales was terrible so surely the offense will shine with out him; not to mention switching over to a 3-4 defense without a legit nose tackle oh yeah thats surely a recipe for success.... :icon_rofl:

    the only thing worst than your squads piss/blood/*** colored unis is the managements monumentaly retarded decisions.

    CHARGER POWER! :bolt:
