    The ump let his emotions over ride his professionalism.
    100% agree, but we count on umps to be dispassionate and adjudicate fairly. Even the whiff of revenge or bias destroys the entire umpire/referee system. Had he tossed the player for protesting the previous strike no one would have thought twice about it. But when he allowed his own feelings to usurp the fairness and honesty of the game, he crossed a line that should never, ever be crossed by an ump or ref. If I was in charge of the umpire association or conference, I would ban him for at least a year and would want to sit down and discuss it with him before allowing him to umpire ever again.

    Making an incorrect call out of a sense of vindictiveness the second worst thing an umpire can do, IMO. The only thing worse would be to gamble on the outcome of a game and then make your calls in a way that skew that outcome.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Well at least now a google search for Reggie Drummer shows more than a bunch of links to Reggae Drummers.

    That seems like a step backwards to me, honestly.

    Unfortunately I've seen worse.
    They/we lowered fork lifts into the hull of a ship a gas line ruptured on a fork lift.
    It was to loud to here. All we saw were guys running and screaming. Swating at a invisible bug attack .fire was invisible. Really bad day .saw skin peeling ect . They all lived two were burned badly.
    That scared me.its hard to react to what you can't see.

    Cotton/ coal will spontaneously combust also.but it only burns replaceable things luckily.

    Oh, and it was the last out of the game.

    Ump should be suspended or fired, IMO. That's just wrong.

    I get the outrage at the ump's conduct, but I have to say, based on the above, I was expecting worse.

    Gwyneth Paltrow's Rectal Insufflation Ozone Therapy

    ...which involves "the administration of medical grade ozone directly into the colon via the rectum," has been getting pushback from the medical community. For those of you considering this treatment, you should know that many doctors advising against it!

    Here is one such example: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...-ozone-therapy

    IMO, any medical claim Gwyneth Paltrow makes or product she recommends comes with a presumption of quackery until proven otherwise.

    WAY more.

    I got semi-charged in Yosemite. Came out of my tent at 4am before a half dome hike and it was running headlong at me escaping another set of pot banging campers. I put my hands over my head and yelled, “hey bear”. It got to the edge of my tent and it turned hard.

    I once stumbled around a corner and found myself VERY CLOSE (ten feet?) to a bill moose.
