I love that most opponents I play with treat cash games just like they do tourneys with regards to their dwindling stack.

Which is why it went from how I defined myself and my success to being a means for me to enjoy the actual things that matter.

Fkc defining myself by my career...did I spend enough time with the people that matter to me and did I do enough of the things that I value and matter to me?


You are on point but you miss the last paragraph where you argue for the joy and satisfaction of having kids and having a positive influence on their upbringing and lives

Valid point by gg.... abuse of officials is a real thing. I will never do basketball again (assume the same for most indoor games like volleyball....maybe even hockey). Baseball is relatively safe if you are not the plate ump for the game.

Football/soccer/lacrosse....there is a space buffer that relieves the pressure cooker environment of indoor anything.


My youngest will be in HS next year so my opportunities for coaching are dwindling. I'm coaching her rec lax team this spring and might coach an indoor team in the fall/winter.

But I've thought about what I'll do after and considered officiating. I'd prob ref girls lacrosse over bball and or boys lax. We'll see. I think it would be fun. But LAX here in Charm City is pretty ****ing intense. I'd love to jump in and ref higher level club or high school stuff eventually but I'm sure for a while it's a lot of Tyker and lightning officiating which might be tough to watch

IDK we'll see

Although if you have buddies that you can play a round with / hit the pub with later it's certainly a good time. If you don't have buddies, joining a team sport enables you to meet people that you could turn into golf buddies (my golf buddies last year were all met thru hockey).

I would hope any amateur hockey player overheard moping about his "value" would be checked into the boards for the rest of the decade.

Tried coaching his rugby team last year and found it too stressful. Little ****ers messed around too much and I found it hard to stay constructive.

I find coaching >>>> reffing but I have also run way above EV with regards to both players and parents.

RE: depression...can't say that ending it all hasn't went through my mind quite often during my bouts of depression. Usually worse when they cycle close together. Wish I had great advice for someone else but sometimes you just have to soldier on and with the hope that things will get better. And they usually do, even if it isn't in the way yo would expect.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Anyone have experience with dogs and dental work?

I think I mentioned before but my pup chipped her tooth a few months ago and it’s getting progressively worse. We’ve taken her to 2 vets and both don’t want to pull it bc it’s a primary molar (it’s huge, like almost 3/4” long and maybe a 1/4” wide)

It is absolutely rotting though, like it was a huge chip (probably 25% of tooth) and the gaping hole is rotting...it’s disgusting.

Both vets say this happens and it standard and normally would pull but nahhh.

It’s definitely bothering her fwiw. And it smells awful.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I reffed hockey from the age of 17-24.

Will never do it again.

True story: I stopped a game because I could hear death threats against me from a parent in the stands. Stoppage lasted 34 minutes. Refused to restart the game until he was escorted off the premises by police. I was 20 at the time.

And it was the most obvious tripping penalty I ever saw.

He was banned from being in the building for all of his ELEVEN year old kidís games. And when he got caught in the rink about 3 weeks later, his kid got kicked out of the league.

I swear that 90% of kids think their kid is the next NHL star when most of them would barely make a beer league. And the money parents piss away as an ďinvestmentĒ thinking their kid is the next big thing is way beyond LOL.

I'm sure you meant "parents" but I love how accurately this sums up the maturity level of parents who have this mindset.

One of my dogs has had 5-6 teeth pulled between 3 different occasions. They knocked him out and pulled them, he seems much happier not being in pain.

I'd say 3-4 years. At around 12 or 13 they become obnoxious little pricks. I reffed one junior high soccer match when I was younger and swore I would never do it again.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Took the horrible 90s gold-framed mirrored sliding doors off my closet yesterday and replaced them with a wood and frosted glass door kit from Menards. It claimed to be a one-man hour install. Nope.

I'm pretty experienced with light construction and have a full shop in the basement. It still took about 5-man hours between myself and my father-in-law, partially because the closet wasn't completely square, but mostly because the instructions were less detailed than an Ikea assembly cartoon. For instance, though the doors were slightly different shapes, this was not mentioned in the instructions, much less than it mattered which one went in the back and which in the front.

What is horrible 90s? the gold frame or sliding mirror doors in general?
