I just hit 41, and I’m still callin’ em as I seez em! I officiate high school as well as youth ball down to age age 10 & under.

My wife lived in Paris as a youth. Her father, a history professor at the University of Tulsa did research over there for a time.

I attended the University of Tulsa, but alas, the baseball program was done away with before I got there.

Nope, but thanks for playing.

(1) Nope, never. I dunno how I’ve dodged that bullet this long hehheh

(2) Yep, by my ex-wife. Fortunately the owners of the bar were friends of mine so we didn’t get kicked out. Rather embarassing though when they pulled me into the office and showed me the tape. Pervs!

(3) Nope, but I tried. Got 1/4 the way across, sobered up to realize that what I was doing was completely insane, and swam back. Had to shave my head as pennance since I didn’t complete the crossing (a pre-determined condition of said bet.) LSU football fans are a nutty bunch. :slight_smile:
