I should have gotten a T last year in intramural, when a guy broke my finger and I ran up to the ref, held up my crooked finger and called him a blind fuck.
Man, I've got some funny IM stories as far as the techs thing goes, including one season in which we weren't allowed to participate in the playoffs with a perfect record due to our sportsmanship grade average being less than a B.

I would greatly enjoy hearing those. IM sports are insane.

IM stories are always fun. A woman reffing floor hockey. One of my players pushed over another player (IM floor hockey is non contact) so she called a penalty. I'm moving the puck around the opponents net and he's repetitively pushing me outside of the goalie crease not letting me in.

So I went and called her retarded for not calling the exact same call on the other side. the only difference? I didn't fall like a baby on the floor. Her response to me? "Listen, it's bound to happen, do you want me to start calling it both ways and everyone can get penalties?" Like... really... how does that make any sense at all for a response?

At least she knows the rules. Half of my games have been done by people who don't even understand the sports. And one guy was really high reffing our one basketball game and made every call four to six seconds after it happened.

I had a softball game where we were in the last inning down by a run with one out with me on third. There was a fly ball to shallow center and I decided to tag up and go for it. The guy made a pretty good throw and it beat me there but I slid well and got a hand in there. The umpire called me out and I went ballistic. He couldn't kick me out or warn me or anything because the play ended the game, but I had to be pulled away from him.

I have a bit of a temper when it comes to these things.

Funny part is you're right. She knows the rules. The majority dont. She just didn't call them evenly. I'm my team's captain, so before our first game I wanted to clarify some league rules. I asked them if it was okay to stick lift and they're like "what's that?". I asked them if my players were allowed to stand in the goalie's crease and he was confused as well with what I was talking about.

Also fun to note that one of the refs is also the shift manager at the GameStop on our campus. And completely out of sheer luck I just so happened to ask him about NHL 11 months before the league started. And he had nothing much to say. I mean, of course that doesn't really mean he is knowledgeable or not with hockey, but I found it quite ironic when I saw him reffing.

Don't get me started on the umpiring in IM softball. Those idiots don't understand a slow pitch strike zone at all. And then there's flag football. I can't tell you how many times I was called for "flag guarding" while making a juke or spinning.

And despite all this, IMs are one of the things I miss most from college.

I'll never forget an intra-mural high school floor hockey game I was involved in when I was in Grade 8. I was the goalie and at one point a player on my team lost his cool and swung his stick at another player. They started fighting and before you know it I was trading punches with the opposing goalie. It turned into an all out brawl.

I say this in all seriousness: that was one of my fondest memories of my high school years. It was such an adrenaline rush. I loved every minute of it.

They put a carpet out near the strike zone, and strikes and balls were based on whether it landed on the carpet or not. Basically the umps just had to call the bases.

And we were outlawed from spin moves in football to avoid flag guarding. There's also an interesting story about the game I showed up drunk, but that's for another night.

Funny because my only legitimate fight was with a goalie. Considering fights are a thing of adult leagues/18+ only and I've never played in an adult league (in fact I even rarely played ice hockey, being in Florida roller hockey is much cheaper and more convenient).

I was screening the goalie being a real pest and he was pushing off of me. Wasn't bothering me at all though, but he was getting really frustrated with me. Shot came through and I tried to deflect it and instead nipped his wrist and he friggin lost it. It was hilarious looking back because it wasn't my fault. His defenders did nothing to move me out of the way and he was playing way out of his crease.

I trust that you beat his ass.

Hockey and football are collision sports. Basketball is very much a high contact sport. Arguing that fact is just plain silly. If you'd like me to start listing the permanent injuries I have from a lifetime of playing this "lite contact" sport, i'd be more than happy to.


I could also list all the technicals i've gotten, but I don't think we have the time.

Best one, at least?

Long story short on my best heady hoops story, this one from my youth league in high school: a kid's mom threatened to fight me in the parking lot when I started jawing off to the little shit talker after hitting a three to go up twenty in the third quarter. The league was disbanded shortly after.

I'm assuming/hoping Headache's stories will trump that.
