Umps Strike Out

Some Mississippi umpires had a rough go of it this weekend.  First up is the UNO-MVSU game.  Check out the last at-bat in the game. 

Um, yeah.

Then there is the MRA game. Sometimes you wanna just say screw it all. Well, this umpire did.

I always appreciate your “expert sports analysis” KF.

Who did he think he was ?

Organizations, leagues, even unions...need to start blacklisting these umpires who make no effort to 'get it right'. Football is the worst but baseball is approaching fast from behind.

Ump from MVSU game was promptly fired this morning I saw..

The ump was last seen heading to a chartered jet en route to a tropical destination.

Hilarious. Wrong of the ump to do that, but a lot quicker than ejecting the player.

OK, JJ fans. I'm retired and been wanting to take some kind of job that I would enjoy that didn't feel like work. If I get enough votes tonight I promise to become an umpire and make the biggest ass of myself every chance I get. I need someway to identify myself as a JJ fan so y'all know it was me. Any ideas are appreciated.

Players need to play, coaches need to coach, and umpires need to umpire. That would solve ALL of these problems.

It wasn't the player. The coach asked the ump to check with the first base ump to see if the batter tried to bunt, or pulled back.

The ump said he was through.

8:00 pm - we will know you if you call "YESSSSIR" on the strikes and "Ball" on the balls.

Alternatively, on the strikes you can call "Peachy-keen, jellybean."

You cain’t just quit. This is sports. This is organized sports. It’s important. There’s people that live for this. It’s bigger than just you and your stupid six kids.

7:40 - Please rephrase. It's not the six kids who are stupid.

I figured it would have been the belligerent yelling parents that made him leave but it was the coach huh

The sports world would be better if parents and coaches simply cheered and coached their kids, and the kids didn’t react to every single call that doesn’t go their way. Much better. Not that the referees/umpires don’t need some work too, but it would go a long way not to argue every single thing that happens in a couple hour game.

The "Playa" made a broadway production in front of the ump on the previous pitch (2nd strike) that the batter didn't like. The Ump taught the little Karen a lesson. It happens all the time.

Hopefully everyone received a trophy.

Good for the MRA ump. The kid clearly "swung/bunted" at the ball. Given the game was in process, who knows what else took place prior to this.

"Y'all figure it out!"

'What else took place prior to this' should have no bearing on a current call, 11:23.

Figure that out.

(1) It was a terrible call; clearly because the ump was sending a message over the batter's terrible actions following the previous pitch
(2) The ump has been suspended; he should have dealt with the batter's three year old attitutde rather than responded with a crappy call
(3) MVSU (hard to use the "U" - university??, but I digress) had basically already lost this game, but the ump should have let it happen in the proper manner; probably one more pitch that was at least close
(4) MVSU got butt stomped the next day: 35 - 3. Yes that is a baseball score, 35 runs scored.

Thirty five!!! 35 ??? Five touchdowns against a field goal in a baseball score? And no evidence of any ump misconduct.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
