Is about the police captain who's been given probation. This is the the guy who shoved of those young female rough three of the youth sports basketball game. And and an assist. He's sitting just protecting its child exile accord something was all of his kidney and you've got out there and people upset and yes. The united pusher but on the video and pretty much shows him. Pushing. For the video. But is it's a bad situation that you Nolan and I'm a Laguna. You stand up for the guy that these people these parents get upset that some of these youth games I mean. Why I have been due to the point where I just you know you should keep amount ship and a normal life and I'm not that much involved my grandkids are out there and it's not that big a deal that. After remind myself every now and then it to accuse game. In need get upset about it. The umpires and referees but it's easy to do. These deals to lose your your cool a little bit happens all the time and it does and I go back to. My in my youth. When net cash how old are we grew could have been more than thirteen fourteen years old and a brother and I and and one of the guys get a summer job. Umpiring Little League Baseball. And west Wichita now that you know these were six and seven year old okay. Probably the worst job I've ever had realized at that age of course.

I've often felt I would not enjoy that and often felt I wondered if the best unit and this happened when I was in youth baseball one or two times it's happened. You would do a game with what umpire and he would basically stand behind the pitcher. Now and you could argue that she's a strike zone from there may be better than from behind the plate. I don't know that's waited and got all the cameras set out there you know. In today's in today's world but it sometimes that would happen newsstands callables strike all the bases right I don't say with Canada and a but anyway this the gentleman whose it. The police captains apparently just got probation so you have to go to anything like that. Six can point 68 Oz why I was the official score keeper that was mourn mine okay.
